6 simple tips to get the engagement pictures you've been daydreaming about.

Wear Timeless Attire

Express yourself and be true to your style, but be aware of colors that may not match the scenery or overly trendy patterns. Consider where you'll be having your session and how these images will complement the setting of where you’ll be using these photos— tables at your wedding or your living space.

Take Care of Yourself

Life can be a lot sometimes, so don’t forget to take care of yourself— especially in the days leading up to your session. Drink plenty of water, maintain your skin care regimen, get lots of rest, and be ready for closeups of your ring!

Choose Locations that Resonate

Consider locations that represent you as a couple; perhaps the art gallery where you met, or a bar you frequent together. Think creatively— if your photographer is good, any location can be a beautiful canvas.

Consider Time of Day

Schedule your session in the early morning or around sunset if possible. The lighting is best during this time. It gives lots of variety and avoids the overbearing lighting when the sun is high.

Trust the Process

Enjoy yourself, and embrace the excitement of this unique moment in your life! Think of your engagement session like a little date day with your partner, but you also get incredible photos after! Trust your photographer. It is our job to gracefully guide you through the process.


As professionals, we want to hear about your vision for the session. Don't be afraid to share ideas and make it a collaboration. We will use this as inspiration and together we'll create art that represents you and your story together.
