Engagements are the first step to documenting your joined life together, and here are a few answers to frequently asked questions about engagement sessions, location, clothes and more!
1. WHAT IS AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION ALL ABOUT?
I LOVE engagement photos! They’re one of my favorite types of sessions to photograph! I love getting to know you as a couple more than just us having coffee over samples and questions! This is the time where you get to shine, and you learn what it’s like to be in front of the lens (it’s not so scary, really)! Plus it’s just a time for you two to be together and capture something to share with your family, friends and future generations!
One of my favorite parts of an engagement session is the location. When thinking about where you want your engagement session think of a place that means something to the both of you as a couple… is it where you met? Your favorite fishing hole? Maybe your favorite diner? Or the State Fair? Our options are endless, and if you just can’t think of a great place – well I have a bunch of fantastic locations that you’ll absolutely love
3. WHAT TO WEAR
Be confident, be yourself and the beauty of your love together will show through! Make sure to bring a few fun options for your engagement session and make sure you love all of the pieces and feel beautiful and like yourself in them! It always helps to coordinate your outfits with each other, but not matchy-matchy. Don’t forget to accessorize and bring extra shoes!
4. CONSIDER PROFESSIONAL HAIR + MAKEUP
Consider hiring a professional makeup artist + hair stylist for your engagement session, in addition to making you feel more confident it will also get you acquainted with professionals for your big day! Plus, who doesn’t want a day of pampering?
5. HAVE FUN + RELAX
The most important thing to remember for an engagement session is to have fun and relax! It’s all about hanging out and you guys showing your love for each other! I can’t wait to capture your connection!
