Thinking about getting in front of the camera together gives most couples the jitters, but trust me! These simple tips on how to prepare for your engagement session honestly make all the difference in how you feel heading into something that has the potential for good times and great memories.
MAKE THE WHOLE DAY SPECIAL
Photos are all about showing your connection and relationship, so why not really fuel that before and after your photos? Plan a day date before it’s time to get ready and/or make it a priority to go out to your fave restaurant after we’ve wrapped. You’re all dressed up and looking fantastic, so make the most of it. You’ll feel even more connected in celebration.
BRING YOUR FAVES ALONG
Do you two share a passion for craft beer or a deep-seated, constant competition for being the cribbage champion in your relationship? Bring anything you love along for your photos! Nothing will make you feel more comfortable than your favorite things (and person) along for the ride. From pizza picnics and guitar serenades to refurbished motorcycles and new puppies, what lights up your life will make your photos come alive and feel crazy fun. Try me, nothing’s too weird and we can make it all look super cool in photos!
TAKE A SIP
Sometimes it just feels good to loosen up a bit before photos. Bring your favorite spiked beverage along and take a sip or two before we jump into your session. The looser you feel, the more fun you’ll have in the process!
These three simple tips honestly make a world of difference in photos. With these under your belt, you’re engagement session ready!!
