Why We Won't Be Skipping the Engagement Session

An engagement session is included in all my packages be­cause I truly believe the ses­sion is a vital part of the entire process. During the engage­ment shoot you’ll get to know me, experience how I shoot, as well as how I direct my couple through the posing.

What I learn from this session makes a huge impact on how your wedding day flows. I’ll be able to arrive on your wedding day already knowing how you two interact with one another, your best poses and how to get your genuine self to show up in each image. You’ll feel more confident on the big day because of the practice during your engagement session. 

Still not convinced?!

Camera Shy

You can get used to being photographed. Majority of couples haven’t been photographed by a professional before, so posing, taking direction and having a camera on you can take some getting use to!

Extra Images

You will get awesome images in a casual and fun environment that you can use in a variety of ways. From your wedding website, social media or invitations all the way to your gallery wall in the house. You can never have enough quality photos of you and your loved one.


I can get to know you better and vice versa. Sure you know me from the coffee date, feel connected to me from social media, but having that in person connection grow leads to more trust. The more my clients trust me to do my job, the better I am, leaving you with more beautifully captured moments. 


It's free, complimentary and no added cost. Why not bring your fur friend that completes the family and use this professional photography setting to your advantage! These images will add to your gallery wall and at least some awesome memories to look back on. 

I'd hope you can see the importance of these sessions, and why I've made them mandatory should we have the opportunity to work together! 
As you start to plan for your engagement shoot, you will need to start brainstorming about location ideas. I love when couples pick a location that is special or sentimental to them. If you can’t think of anywhere specific that you would like to shoot, I can help with suggesting a location that will look awesome! Do not shy away from suggesting or inquiring about any wild ideas, the more creative the better.

Can't wait to work together.
