… and they really capture the excitement for your upcoming wedding.


First and foremost, you should have an engagement session done because they are so much fun!  You get to pamper yourself and dress up and — here’s the best part — snuggle and kiss your best friend for a good hour or two.

I believe having an engagement photo session is important for several practical reasons.  First, this time allows you, as a couple, to get comfortable in front of the camera and better acquainted with me, your wedding photographer, to figure out how we work best together before the main event.

Next, you can showcase your personalities in a more casual setting, while creating some fun, memorable images for wall portraits, your guest book, and thank you cards (shot early enough, we can also provide the images for your save-the-date cards and invitations).  And your engagement photographs are also great to use on your wedding website.

Best of all, you learn to trust me.  Trust is essential to my relationships with my clients.


Engagement sessions are a great excuse to put aside the stressful parts of planning a wedding and just enjoy one another and have some fun together.

Engagement sessions also allow for plenty of time to get creative.

Including props along with your engagement session is always encouraged.  Some ideas include giant balloons, umbrellas, and champagne.  You can even bring along your pets!  Anything to help tell your story.

We will spend time making natural and romantic images that will remind you of how happy and in love, and yes, how darn young and beautiful you were… because everyone needs pictures like these that they can show to their future grandchildren to say “This was us.”
