Planning Your Engagement Session

We will decide on a date and location together. I’m happy to send over location recommendations if need them. I will send over exact details on meeting time and location about one week prior to your session.

Your Session

My goal is to make my sessions feel laid back and very easy going! I will give you plenty of guidance, but also just let you be yourself.

Your Photos

I will send over a few next day sneak peeks, because I know you cannot wait to see them. Your full gallery will be delivered via online gallery and ready for you within 2 weeks of your session date.

What to Wear

  1. Think movement. My shooting style is to have you moving around a lot. Make sure to wear something you are comfortable moving in. Flowy skirts or dresses photograph beautifully because we can play with the movement of them.
  2. Bring options. Feel free to send over outfit ideas for input beforehand, and bring multiple options to the session. That way we can get an idea of how the outfit looks with the specific location. Bringing options for accessories such as hats or jackets is also recommended.
  3. Coordinate colors. Instead of trying to perfectly match your outfit to your partner’s outfit, think of choosing complimentary colors. You can never go wrong with neutral colors. I always suggest choosing earthy colors that are not too bright or distracting.
  4. Play with patterns. Incorporating unique patterns and textures such as fringe, faux fur, linen, denim, etc. can add a fun pop to your photos. Vintage clothing shops or thrift store often have great finds for unique textures.
  5. Stay true to you. Lastly and most importantly, these are YOUR photos and the most important thing is that you feel comfortable and confident in what you are wearing. Let your outfit reflect your personality for the best photos!

Make Your Photos Unique

I love when couples bring props or special items that are unique and true to them. Here are a few of my favorite ideas for what to bring:

Your dogs!

Retro sunglasses



Old cars/motorcycles


Favorite food (pizza, ice cream, etc.)



+ anything else you can think of!
