It's time to start thinking about your engagement session!

The best part is that this session is entirely about you two. Take some time to consider what you truly love doing. You can plan a shoot that is completely in line with your style and relationship, whether you're climbing to a hilltop or having a beer outside your favorite local brewery.

So let's get together and run around town (or the woods, the beach, or your home) while capturing this moment in your journey together, no matter how large or small it is!

There are a few key pieces that go into crafting your dream shoot. All of these things are adjustable, and they may or may not apply to what you want or require, which is totally fine! As always, if you have any questions or even a crazy idea for something, don't hesitate to contact me—chances are I'll be entirely on board!

Planning your session

engagement session FAQs

The first thing to think about when scheduling an engagement is the time of year you want to do it. Some of my couples want their engagement session to have a completely different look than their wedding day. Perhaps it's a different season or simply a location you won't be able to find on your wedding day. The exact date of your engagement is determined by your personal preferences for the photos.

One thing to remember is that, traditionally, save the dates go out six months before the wedding

Regardless, we typically spend 1-2 hours together during the session (this includes any travel time between sites, which should be factored into your plans), and my editing turnaround time is 1-2 weeks.

when should we schedule our engagement session?

It's important to consider what kind of mood you're drawn to as well as what represents your relationship. If you already have a location in mind, that's fantastic! If not, I'm always eager to go scouting for new spots.

Let's start with the basics: do you want to do it in the mountains or in the forest? Lakes or glaciers? Is it better to go to a coffee shop or a craft brewery? We won’t stop looking until we've identified and selected a location that's perfect for you. If that means hiking 5 miles to an incredible view spot that you and your partner adore, go for it!

Whatever vibe you are going for, we can help you find just the right location!

What Locations should we use?

Surprisingly, one of the most common reasons for concern when organizing an engagement or photo session is attire. To make it as simple as possible, I normally recommend two outfits: one for a nice date night and one for a more informal occasion. One clothing change (in conjunction with a location change) is okay, but any more will break the shoot's natural flow and eat into our photographic time. It's also okay if you only want to wear one outfit!

If you ask, I'm always happy to make wardrobe recommendations, but my major recommendation is to wear something clean and comfortable that makes you feel confident and badass. Sometimes that means ordering a new outfit, but I strongly advise you to go through your closet and bring out your favorite and tried-and-true pieces. Comfort is also important when it comes to footwear. I recommend wearing comfortable shoes because we tend to do a lot of walking and moving during these sessions and stopping to change shoes cut into the time and the flow of our day.
