Your Engagement Session
Yaaay! We are so, so excited to meet you and your babe and get you comfortable in front of our cameras! You probably are nervous as heck and have no idea where to start or what to expect. Weeellll we are going to go over all of that below!
What to Bring
We recommend limiting how much you bring to your session, as we will be moving around quite a bit. However, below are some recommendations on what you should bring:
– Flowers! Bringing a beautiful bouquet of flowers can add so much life to your session. Whether it’s a bundle of sunflowers from whole foods or a custom designed bouquet from a florist, you won’t regret this addition.
– Champagne, sparklers, etc. Props can be really fun to incorporate into your session!
– Water.. so your mouths don’t get dry from all the kissing! (kidding, mostly)
What to Wear
Most often, couples like to have one casual, everyday outfit and then one outfit that is dressier. This will give your shoot two totally different “looks”. We recommend beginning with the dressy outfit first! (Make sure to check how many looks your collection includes.)
Long, flowing dresses always photograph great for ladies. For guys, we love starting with a suit or a pair of nice pants and dress shirt is perfect. Ladies, if you’re planning to wear heels we would recommend bringing a pair of walking shoes to change into while we’re not shooting.
We will do our absolute best to make you comfortable during your session, but we do need you both to put in a bit of effort as well. If you want your photos to reflect your personality, you need to show that! We can only capture what is present. Give us all the belly laughs, big goofy smiles and be as lovey dovey as you two have ever been in your lives.
Most importantly, relax. This is a time of celebration, your engagement session will be fun! We don’t expect you to be experts at this, and that’s completely okay. No experience is necessary!
If we decide we won't be able to shoot due to weather we will reschedule your session for the next agreed upon day. If you're nervous about weather and don't want to have to reschedule we suggest booking your session for the Atlanta Botanical Gardens as there are lots of beautiful indoor options! If you have to reschedule for any other reasons there is a small rescheduling fee.
Depending on which collection you booked, your session will come with different amounts time, outfit changes, locations, photos, etc! If you'd like to upgrade your session to have more options please let us know. This is especially common if you'd like to shoot at multiple locations.
The most popular add on is a proofing gallery, 99% of our couples add this. For $94 you'll be able to view your unedited gallery, look through them together and choose your favorites! We've found this to be very beneficial because it not only ensures you're receiving your absolutely favorite shots but it also gives you the ability to select additional images past what's included in your collection.
