When To Do Engagement Photos

If you’re wanting to use some of the images from your engagement photography session for things like invitations or guestbooks, you’ll want to have your session done at least a few months before you need the products.

You will see the proof images within a week of the session, but leave some time for you to consider which images to use for the products you want to order.  Some professional products can take 1 – 2 months to receive from the manufacturer once the order is placed.

What To Wear For The Photo Session

When selecting wardrobe, there’s a few things that you should consider to ensure that your photos will stand the test of time:

  • Stick to NEUTRAL or MUTED COLORS.  Bold colors will be a distraction.
  • Stick to SOLID colors, and steer away from things like plaid, poca dot and stripes.  Also steer away from logos and shirts with graphics.  While certain patterns may be trendy today, they won’t always look cool and your photo can easily look dated in a short period of time.  Also, busy patterns will be a distraction and take away from the subject (YOU!).
  • Both of you should ensure that your colors are in a similar TONAL RANGE.  If one person is wearing dark black, then the other should not wear bright white – leave the contrasting tones for the wedding day :-)
  • You should both look like you’re going to the same event.  For instance, if one person is dressed casually, you should both be dressed casually.
  • Think from HEAD TO TOE.  Your feet will definitely be in some of the photos, so don’t overlook your footwear!  This may sound obvious, but every year I have someone show up wearing beach style flip flops thinking that the feet won’t be showing :-)

Booking Your Session

To confirm a booking, payment for the session can be made using VISA or MASTERCARD.  If you need to change the booking time, I require a minimum of 24hr notice.

Hi-Res Digital Files

The “original camera files” are available as an option in my list of products and services.  If you select them, they will be provided to you unmarked (no logo or studio information on them).

After the Session

You can expect to see your images within about 1 week following your portrait session.  The images will be made available to you as digital download link that you can share with friends or family.
