Engagement sessions

Engagement sessions are all about having fun and letting your personalities show through! It's an exciting time to be engaged and to be yourselves. I'll be there to capture your unique love story and also get to know you guys better. 

I like to involve my couples in the creative process and be able to take you somewhere that fits you guys. If you have any specific locations or ideas... I'd love to hear them! For example, I've done a "Slurpee engagement session" at a 7-Eleven. I know what your thinking, "you took pictures at a gas station?" Yup, and it probably was one of my favorites! The story behind it is that the couple made it a tradition to get Slurpees on every date they went on. I even followed them right after they were married as they made their way to the closest 7-Eleven. The point I'm making is that I really want to personalize things to your relationship and tell your story. If you’re wondering about how you can make your experience personal and memorable, feel free to bring along any props that are special to you. I want your session to scream YOU, so if that means bringing your four legged friend along or props that tell your story, please do! We can incorporate them into your photos in a fun way! Maybe it’s something from your proposal or a hobby you both love and share, maybe it’s a food you love or a bottle of wine that is special. Whatever you want in your photos, I’ll do my best to make it happen!

Let me know if you have questions about anything you see here!

planning is key!


We will start on time! Being a lover of natural light, my timing for your session isn’t a coincidence, it is scheduled so that we have the best lighting for your photos. (Trust me: I’m the guy looking at the sunset schedule a year in advance!) Please allow enough time when you find yourself planning and include time for travel or traffic. We will shoot until the sun sets, so if we begin a bit late, we won’t stay late! This just ensures that we are in the right place or the right light and will give you the best results!

Come prepared! A lot of my brides opt to get their hair and make up professionally done for their session. Make sure you allow enough time to enjoy that experience prior to the photos. If you want to arrive in your first outfit, we will get right to work (after a big hug and a little small talk!) Small details like having manicured nails to show off your ring and the right colored socks help ease stress, so consider setting out your outfits the night before and making sure you have every accessory you want photographed ready!

Feel free to bring one change of clothes: I love to offer the opportunity for an outfit change halfway through the session. This gives you the opportunity to get a few different looks and feels with your session while maximizing our time together. Many couples opt for one dressier option and one more casual option. Warning: You may need to change in your car, depending on where we are shooting! Just be prepared for the adventure! I’ll stand guard! 





It’s more than okay to feel nervous! Please know that I do not expect you to be models. My job is to direct you in a way that helps you relax, feel natural, and be your true comfortable selves in front of my lens. You do not need to practice poses, study Pinterest pints or let the nerves take over. By the end of the session you will feel like Tyra Banks and wonder when your big break in modeling will come! Don’t worry if you are feeling nervous, I’ll be sure the end result is something you will love!
