Tips for a great engagement photo session

Tip #1: Location, Location, Location
For your engagement photos pick a spot meaningful to you and your fiancé. If no places come to mind ask us for recommendations. We’ll be sure to find a location unique and representative of the two of you as a couple

Tip #2: Make it a hot date
Plan a crazy fun hot date and invite us along. The purpose of the photo shoot is to capture your focus on your partner and your love for him or her.  Try to relax and enjoy being together.

Tip #3: Hair & Makeup
Trash the engagement session – it’s just like trash the dress. Jump in the ocean, pond, whatever.  Just have fun with the engagement session.

Tip #4: Hair & Makeup
Consider wearing matte makeup or getting your makeup applied by a professional. It can also be a good idea to get your hair done on that day, perhaps your regular salon visit can be scheduled on the day of your engagement shoot…two birds with one stone! On hot days carry oil blotting tissues (make up safe) available at the local drugstore.

Tip #6: Clothing
Wear what best represents you. Don’t wear something because you think it’s what you “should” wear in a photo. Have fun and be creative!

Tip #8: Have a jam session
On the drive to your engagement photography session, loosen up to your favorite cd and crank it up!

Tip #9: Water
The days leading up to your engagement session make sure to drink extra water to hydrate your skin for the photos.

Tip #10: Be Yourself
It is extremely important that you relax in front of the camera. In fact, this is the key to a successful photo shoot.
Just be yourself. Your engagement photos will look beautiful.
Tip #11: Strike a Pose
When we give you posing suggestions, enjoy yourselves and have fun while posing.  Don’t be afraid to make your own suggestions and work with the initial pose you’re given.
