Engagement Session – the getting-to-know-you shoot

Engagement SessionPrior to a wedding, there are a million things to organize. The last couple of weeks can be particularly hectic: here is a change in the program, there a mishap — everything has to be resolved. Togetherness as a couple takes a backseat during the weeks prior to a wedding. The engagement session, or engagement shoot, presents you with an opportunity to spend a few hours alone as a couple prior to your wedding. Actually, as a threesome, because I will be behind the camera, capturing your every glance, touch, and smile. I am confident that after working together for a short while, you will forget that I am even there, and will simply relax and enjoy your time together. An engagement shoot that allows you to unwind!

We will meet at a location of your choice. This should be a place that has a connection to you, allows you to be comfortable and relaxed, and lets you leave your worries behind. Here we will document your personal love story and agree on a plan for your wedding shoot. We will take our time getting to know each other and discussing and experimenting with your preferences. I am sure that prior to your wedding, you have some ideas as to how you would like your wedding pictures to look, how you would like to present yourself as a couple, and how the wedding shoot with me will proceed. The Engagement Session allows you to explore all these areas and takes the pressure off before your big day. Think of this session as a dress rehearsal — no stress, and everything that gives you pleasure is allowed. Your movements in front of the camera are fluid and relaxed. In only a short period of time, you will get a natural feel for how to pose as a couple.

I look forward to getting to know you better during the Engagement Shoot and will use it as an opportunity to get you to relax in front of the camera.

It is important to me that you are comfortable during the shoot. You can rest assured and leave all things related to wedding photos to me. I will do everything in my power to ensure that you will have extraordinary wedding pictures that you will enjoy for the rest of your life.
