Engagement Tips

1. HAVE FUN

Its important to have fun. Don’t take the session too seriously. The more relaxed you are, the better you’ll look in your photographs. Let your personalities shine through. Make sure you’ve eaten something so you can focus on the session and not food.

2. SCHEDULE

Our average engagement session lasts about 1.5-2 hours at one location. Please try to be on time. If you are late, we will not be able to extend your session. Keep in mind that we are shooting at the end of the day. If you run late, we will have less time for the session. We want to take advantage of the natural light before it gets dark. Photographs will be ready approximately three weeks after the session.

3. CLOTHING

a. What not to wear
We all love to wear our favorite clothes BUT some clothing doesn’t photograph well because
it distracts from the subject. For example, stripes, polka dots, checkerboards and floral
designs are all very busy and take the focus off the face. No single article of clothing should
draw the most attention from the viewer. Try to stay away from very strong colors like white, red and
yellow. In addition, fluorescent colors are not recommended. Please avoid logos on your
clothing if possible. Contact us for more tips!

4. WHAT NOT TO BRING

Please do not bring backpacks, handbags or anything that you have to carry. The reason for not bringing these things is that you will need to have your hands free as we shoot and we will not be able to carry your items for you. The exception is your keys and cellphones which we can put in our camera bag.

5. ADDITIONAL TIPS

If we’re going to the beach, please bring extra clothes in case you get wet.
Please bring water as you may be thirsty after the session.
Don’t bring lots of stuff in the city as there will be no one to watch and carry it as we shoot.
