When Should We Schedule Our Engagement Session?
Our open dates tend to fill up fast, so try to schedule your session as early as possible. Since we’re usually busy with weddings on weekends, we prefer to shoot engagement sessions Monday through Friday evenings, starting about an hour before sunset. Remember, if you want to use your photos for your programs, invitations, Save the Date cards or guest book, you’ll need to do your session as early as possible! Fall and spring sessions are the best times to schedule your session.

How Long Does The Session Last? What Should We Expect?
Engagement sessions are FUN! They’re laid back and relaxed and are all about us getting to know you as a couple and you getting to know us as photographers. Sessions usually last around 1-2 hours and mainly consist of us putting you in a great spot with perfect light and then you being yourselves, acting silly or being snuggly. We don’t do a lot of posing, but will help you out a little, so don’t worry too much about “not knowing what to do.” Everybody usually starts out feeling a bit self-conscious, but by the end of the session, you’ll feel like a natural!

What Should We Wear?
We always tell our clients to stick to your own personal style, but maybe rev it up a notch. If you like color, wear something BOLD! If you love patterns and accessories, go for it! If you’re a jeans and t-shirt kinda couple, wear jeans, but maybe throw a fun pair of boots or high heels in the mix and pick out the cutest striped t-shirt you can find. Try to stay away from plain white shirts as they are hard to photograph since they reflect so much light. Hats are always fun and we love it when people bring props. Do you guys love to travel? Bring along some vintage suitcases. Love to go see cheesy movies? Bring some 3D glasses. Have fun and be yourself.

Can We Bring More Than One Outfit?
Absolutely! One outfit change is usually no prob but anything more than one change we might not have time for. Feel free to bring extras, though. We’ll see what we can work in.

How Long Does It Take Before We See Our Photos?
Your photos will be posted online within two weeks of your engagement session. We’ll send you a link to your password-protected gallery that you can forward to all of your friends and family. We’ll also select a few of our favorites and post them up on our photography blog.

How Long Does It Take To Get A Guest Book Album?
Guest book albums are custom printed and require at least 6 weeks from the order date to be finished. If you decide to purchase an album, please let us know as soon as possible.
