So, you are now engaged AND planning your engagement photography session! How exciting!! Now, here comes the pressure, right? Not necessarily! Working with many couples over the years, I have found there are some great ways to prepare for the best session you can have.
These tips and tricks are the cornerstone to creating amazing, effortless photos.
The first thing to do is to plan plenty ahead of time. I like to tell my couples to write a list of words describing their dream session. And don’t hold back! If you think you want it, add it to the list. We can condense later once we are in the groove. Also, if you are crafty or love Pinterest, create a mood board with the colors and styles you really love. That will give you plenty of options to work with and it will allow me to see what you are envisioning.
This biggest priority is comfort, hands down.
In choosing a location for your engagement photography session, I will work with you to find exactly what you are looking for. There are some questions to consider when selecting where to go.
No matter where you decide, the choices are endless and incredible. However, this can be one of the most exciting parts to planning your photography engagement session.
It is really easy to put a lot of pressure on yourselves to nail your session. The best thing you can do to reduce stress is remember – this session is not meant to be perfect because you are also not perfect. You are you – so don’t be too hard on yourselves with expectations. You are literally documenting who you are together, and how you and your partner spend your time in the most genuine ways.
So, you are almost ready. But there is a small list of items that are almost too simple, yet ohhhh so important. We aren’t talking about props – you won’t need those for your engagement photography session, but you will need these:
Use this as your checklist and guide and you will see just how much stress falls away. Also, I will be right here to help you as well so you aren’t overwhelmed.
So, now that you are ready – let’s get your date scheduled here.
