Love stories with depth

The Engagement Experience

Engagement photography is such an exciting way to start your wedding planning process. We specialize in documentary style and photo-journalistic style engagement and wedding photography to capture real, authentic moments of your special celebration.

Engagement sessions are the perfect reasons to do a “trial run” with you and your wedding photographer! Getting that chance to get to know each other is, in our opinion, critical to creating a comfortable atmosphere to allow your true emotions to shine in front of the camera.

Effortlessly romantic.

If you’ve never been professionally photographed before, you’ll definitely feel more at ease with an engagement session to break the ice. Modeling is hard! It’s my job to make sure I direct you through every step of the way. Be ready to giggle, laugh, act out silly prompts, and be sweet together in an authentic, photogenic way!


Sessions start at $350

However, in many cases, our wedding packages include engagement sessions as complimentary. Get in touch with me to see how you can bundle both your engagement and wedding photography for the ultimate wedding experience.

Our typical engagement photography session consists of a two to three-hour shoot with up to two locations to give us a great variety. During your engagement session, a ton of one-on-one interaction is encouraged to capture the real emotions that occur between you and your fiance to provoke loving, candid “in-the-moment” photos. We’re talking ear-to-ear belly laughs, playful kisses, dorky dance moves, the whole deal! Multiple outfit changes are wholly recommended for us to switch things up a classy and casual mix. This is also a PERFECT time to try out any ideas you may want to incorporate into the big day as well. The goal of this shoot is to relax, get comfortable, be silly, but mostly – HAVE FUN. Don’t worry, we will take great care of you.
