A day all your own. Let us work with you in creating a unique experience you both can cherish forever.
Romance is in the air and the anticipation of a lifetime together comes to a crescendo in the fleeting weeks leading up to your wedding, causing you to wonder: Is an engagement shoot really necessary? After all, don't the wedding pictures represent the beginning of our lives together?
We believe having an engagement photo session is important for several reasons.
First, this time allows you, as a couple, to get comfortable in front of the camera with your photographer, and figure out how you 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 wedding sign-in book, guest signature board and Thank You cards.
Engagement portraits also add another dimension to your wedding album, chronicling your story from fiancées to husband and wife. Most importantly, you have the memories of this special time forever.
For us to get to know each other, we like to start with a pre-consultation. A relaxing coffee meeting if you will. This is a wonderful time to get to know both of you, what you want to achieve, and what you expect from your wedding day. From there, we will create a wedding day time-line as well as scout the venues to ensure we take advantage of the most perfect locations for family formals and bridal portraits.
Like most wedding days, you will probably start with getting ready. The groom and his men tucked away in a corner watching sports, while the bride and her girls are getting their hair and makeup perfect.
This is also the perfect place for us to begin, and we do so without missing a moment. Before the ceremony you will have a photographer with each of you to ensure nothing is left out.
For the groom, it could be a groomsmen helping with a tie, and for the bride, a family heirloom to be worn in honor throughout the day. These moments are just as important as the cake, dances, and first kiss.
This dedication to care will follow you to the ceremony that you share with friends and family, and all the way through the memories created with those loved ones at the reception.
