It's best to book your engagement session about 6-12 months prior to your wedding. This ensures your photographer can get your photos to you with plenty of time for you to use the photos on your save the dates and wedding décor. We also suggest using the same photographer for your engagement session and wedding.
The best lighting for portraits happens in the morning at sunrise and in the evening at sunset. We recommend choosing a weekday for your engagement session to avoid crowds.
