Ideas for planning your engagement session.
If you want your engagement photos to really showcase who you are and what your all about then we have some ideas to help you plan for the perfect session.
Where did you first meet?
If you want to add some sentimental value to your session return to the location where you first met, where you got engaged or another location that is special to you or your fiance or maybe both. Tell me about how you first met
What kinds of activities do you enjoy doing together? What do you like to do together?
This will help us to create memorable photos for you. Do you love riding your bikes together? or racing model air planes? Do you go to the park and push each other on the swings? Do you love to hike? or fish? or camp? Tell us about your hobbies and we can work together to incorporate them.
Where/how did the proposal happen?
we would love to recreate this moment for you during your sessions. This is the moment you decided to spend the rest of your lives together. This is an important and major milestone. If we are not able to capture this moment as it was actually happening. We want to be able to share your proposal story and have some photos to go along with it.
What are your common interests?
By informing us of your interests, we can try to add a more personal touch to your photos. Are you both fans of the same sports teams? Are you really into comic books or video games? Do you work in the same profession? Grew up in the same city? Went to the same schools?
Do you have any pets together?
If so, they make the perfect addition to your session. We welcome pets in your engagement session. Just be sure to bring a friend along to watch your faithful companions. We will do photos with and without them.
Do you have 'a spot'?
You know that place where you always wind up going on a date? Where you love to just go and be yourselves or get away from reality? Tell us your favourite go-to locations and we can check them out and see if they would be a good spot for your photo sessions and what the location requires to meet this request.
Do you have a favourite season?
Maybe your avid lovers of snow? Do you love the beach? Why not incorporate your favourite season into your session. In fact this is one of the most common trends for engagement photos. Figure you what season you both prefer and work with that. If your love the spring (then a place like the Royal Botanical Gardens or a Nursery may be for you). If you love the summer (beaches, canoeing kayaking, waterfalls the list of possibilities is endless).
Engagement photos are a critical part of the wedding and photography process. They allow the photographer to get to meet you before the wedding and understand whatever quirks you may have. Also gives the couple a chance to meet and get comfortable with the photographer.
It's also a test run at how the image delivery process works. In most cases it is the same for engagement photo delivery as it is for wedding photo delivery.
