What is an engagement session?
Ok, but why take engagement photos?
How does it work?
After you contact me via email or phone and we confirmed our session, we will schedule a date, time and location to meet. The photo session is an hour and a half of shooting time at the location of your choice and after that you will receive an email with a link and a password to your online gallery. There you can view and share photos with friends and family as well as purchasing capabilities.
Choosing a location for your engagement session!
So when the time comes time to decide where your engagement photos will be taken, the location that you pick should be significant or perhaps have some meaning to the two of you. It could be where you met for the first time, or where you got engaged. It could be a place that you both like to spend time, or a place that you frequent go together. There are a lot of locations to consider such as the beach, your hometown, the San Diego Zoo, the college where you met, on the streets of downtown, a stadium, a favorite restaurant, at your home inside or in the backyard, a park trail. There are an infinite number of choices, but the most important thing to keep in mind is that you should pick a spot that represents your style so the images can match that.
Should I get my hair/make-up done?The engagement session for sure is a great opportunity for you to test out your makeup/hair by using this as a trial. We typically recommend that the ladies get their makeup done and a manicure regardless of anything, we will be photographing your ring and the last thing you want is chipped nail polish. For the gents, we recommend getting a haircut prior to the shoot and also making sure their nails are manicured.
Should we bring props to our engagement session?
Yes, absolutely!! If you desire so and fits your vision, you should totally bring props to the shoot.
What happen if the weather is not how I imagine?
If it's stormy, raining or simply makes no sense to go out there to document your engagement, we will reschedule another day that will work out for the both of us. Just keep in mind that cloudy weather is not bad weather, we can still making great pictures.
