Engagement Session Tips and Tricks
#1 LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
I typically suggest clients to choose a location that means something to you both. Have no idea where to begin? Where was your first date? Do you have a common date location? Where did you get engaged?
Location will also play a factor into your wardrobe.... are you strolling in the city? or outdoors? is it spring/summer where colors are bright and green? or fall where the trees are colorful or bare?
Sunrise vs. sunset
Are you the fun, outgoing, bubbly couple? Are you both shy? If you want a more intimate session, mid-day or a busy location might not be for you both.
Dress up, means something different to everyone. I always suggest for client to be comfortable and to be themselves but maybe a more polished version. Think of Sunday’s best, a dinner date attire, or even senior portrait pretty.
***There are always exceptions to these rules.
