HOW IT ALL GOES DOWN…
My engagement sessions are an hour long, plenty of time for an outfit or location change if you’d like. I usually start the session by walking around with you two and getting candid shots in between. We’ll start with some slightly posed, meaning I’ll give some direction on where I want you standing or looking. Once we’re all comfortable with each other I’ll start to use more verbal prompts.
LET ME SEE THAT PDA!
We’ll be wandering around and explore together so let’s make it a fun time! I’ll let you laugh and play around with one another or chase around your dog and we’ll all joke around together. Here and there I’ll stop at certain points that have a great background or will photograph well and I’ll add in suggestive prompts - like having you move in close, hug on one another, talk about a funny story, forehead kisses, etc. Usually we just do a loop around the location we’re at and explore together along the way.
The more comfortable you are with me the better your photos will come out so let’s just start the session off right and become friends at first sight! Really, though, if you all are comfortable hanging out with me and laughing together then it’ll equate to raw candids that are true to you all and an overall super enjoyable time together. FYI - I have seen a million kisses so don’t be afraid to show some PDA in front of me! The most beautiful shots are the ones where the couple wasn’t afraid to get close and be intimate, kiss one another, and truly were just having a fun time and celebrating their relationship and love.
