This session is all about love! This is the beginning your love story and my goal is to tell it through the photographs we capture. I will want to know how did you two meet, fall in love & propose? Getting to know you helps me get a vision for the session that reflects your personality & interests. What do you two love to do together? Is your career your passion & something you want to incorporate into your session? Is there a hobby, craft, sport or pastime that you do in your spare time? Is there a place or event you love going to together? Let's have fun with this session and get creative! For more inspiration click here www.pinterest.com/jamiebrown/love-birds
When to plan:
Typically an engagement session is planned shortly after the proposal when the excitement of planning the wedding is in the air and so that you can use an image from this session in your engagement/intent to wed announcement for the paper... and let's be honest, for a fabulous profile pic to show off your happiness!
What to expect:
Sessions will last 1-2 hours, depending on length of session booked and the date is reserved with the session fee paid in full. I will work with you to get a good idea of what is the best way to tell your story, using the location and any props necessary. I have some props available for you to use, but if you have any ideas please bring them along to your consultation.
How to prepare:
You will need to bring any accessories, props or clothes you'd like to use. Think about where & how you would like to use the images from your session (home, newspaper, announcements, etc) and start building the scene around that theme or location. Let's use those colors in the photo shoot to create a cohesive theme that ties in your wedding colors.
Here is a typical photo shoot checklist :
Other things to consider:
What to wear:
Coordinating with your mate can sometimes be a tricky balance of not matching too much and looking pulled together. I thinking finding a color palette that you both agree on is the best place to start and then bringing pieces together that fit that theme that displays your sense of style beautifully. Classic & timeless pieces are great, but don't be afraid to throw in some trendy touches! I love subtle textures, rich colors and layered shirts and accessories to really bring the look together.
