Engagement Sessions:

These are my very favorite types of sessions. Maybe its just because, I just love making people kiss. Plus I really get to know my couples. These sessions can be booked asap. I am always able to squeeze in dates for couples. Its all about the love and your relationship. That’s what I strive to capture. This is also a time where I get to know you and you both get to know me. You will be able to choose from a variety of adorable poses!

Where and When?:

I’m an on location photographer. We can discuss where the perfect location for you guys.  I like to choose locations that best complement my couples, personalities, ideas, and the good old days.  It’s always fun to shoot in new locations and I love when my couples have input in this area. We can choose a location based on the idea of your wedding theme, where you first met or got engaged or just a personal favorite location.  I’m always scouting new locations for my clients. I like to shoot in the early morning (few hours after sunrise) or early evening (few hours before sunset) to ensure great light and great images!  These time will vary based on the time of year your session is booked.

What to Wear?:

I often suggest bringing a casual outfit, such as jeans and a plain tee shirt and then a more dressy outfit. This way we can capture many kisses, just in different outfits. We can discuss all the options for your session. I always suggest to stay away from being to matchy-matchy, so leave all the white shirts at home. Don’t be afraid of color. Pick complementary colors. It is really important to look like yourself, but find a look that fits each individual style. I’m always available to discuss options in this area, so please feel free to call or email me with your questions.  Here are few clothing options/ideas that you should consider when choosing clothing:


1.  Layers {this is my favorite, other than accessories} Easy way to adds dimension and interest. Also, removing or adding a layer off can give whole new look and feel to a portrait.

2.  Accessories {Hair clips, scarves, hats, jewelry, cute shoes, etc}  These always look great and can bring out personalities as well! www.Etsy.com is a valuable resources.

3.  Texture!  {Lace, sweaters, jackets, ruffles}  Texture is great for adding some depth and interest to your portraits! http://shopruche.com/ has amazing options check out their look book too!

4.  NO logos!  {Logos can be distracting and not so pretty} The little logos like the polo or alligator is fine 🙂

5.  Avoid busy prints and Stark whites

6. One of my favorites!  Feel free to pick a theme- vintage, 50’s, college or sport teams, or anything that inspires you both personally. {That can even just be for half of your session!} Check out Emille and Z’s shoot at celebration !


7. Be inspired by anthropologie, urban outfitters, j. crew, ruche


Bring a PROP or two! It could be a big balloon, a vintage camera, furniture, even your doggie!  It really helps to break the ice and solves the age old question of, “what to do with your hands”.
