Typically, we will shoot the session in a location of your choosing. If you're uncertain of where you want to shoot, we can work together to choose a spot that reflects your style and personality. I  encourage you to let me know of any places with significant or sentimental meaning. Common locations include public parks, national parks, downtown, iconic bridges, and beaches.



Wear clothing that fits your style and personality. After all, these photos are about you! Many of my engagement sessions often choose to have a casual outfit (jeans, boots, collared top, etc.) and a dressier outfit (suit, tie, dress, etc.). Family sessions are easier when we don’t have a wardrobe change. I would generally advise against matching colors and suggest wearing complementary colors. This helps distinguish each person when you're holding each other close. In the end, it's up to you to wear what makes you feel and look good because feeling good shows on camera--trust me.



We start with some very basic poses and eventually, posing becomes easier and more natural. I like to capture the little things in between for the genuine and candid moments. Throughout the session, I also aim to get to know more about my clients and create a comfortable atmosphere. This engages you to talk about each other and to elicit some real emotions. I really focus on this with an engagement session, so that when the wedding day comes, you're already comfortable with me and know what to expect.
