Engagement shoot timeline!
I'm so excited that you've booked me for your engagement or couples session! Please read the the guide below so we can have a great time!
- First and foremost we figure out a date and location for your session! I can provide suggestions or you can let me know of a place or two that would feel extra special - your home, a local park, or a memorable landmark that has been part of your relationship.
- Next we decide on the time of day to meet. For the best lighting, I typically shoot at 'golden hour' which is the time before sunset, or the time right after sunrise (a plus on doing this: we're shooting before any crowds or tourists are out!) I rarely plan a session in the middle of the day when the sun is bright and strong, as my style is more geared towards soft and romantic lighting aesthetics. There can be some exceptions to this though, like if the forecast is looking cloudy/snowy!
- Lastly, I want you to dress like yourselves and feel comfortable during the shoot. Although there are a few things I recommend straying from such as distracting prints or bold logos, you should feel like the clothing is representative of your style. I also recommend comfortable shoes since we'll be walking around!
