HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Engagement sessions are one best parts leading up to your wedding. It’s time to relax, have fun, and get photos with your fiance that you’re going to fall in love with. Most engagement sessions are one to two hours. This gives you time for you to get to know your photographers a bit better. You’ll be surprised how photogenic you are, and how much fun you’re going to have.

Most couples have one or two outfits during engagement sessions. If you love high end styled look, we recommend dressing up. If that’s not your thing, going casual always looks great. Can’t decide which to do? Do both! This way it feels like you have more photos since you would have two separate outfits in two different locations. Here’s a quick list of ideas for clothing
  • Neutrals tones are amazing. Beiges, whites, and greys are awesome. 
  • Dresses that are flowy 
  • Jean jackets (Canadian tuxedo) 
  • WHAT TO WEAR ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION

    WHERE TO GO FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS 

    We go wherever you want during your engagement session. It’s a lot harder to go on a hike to a beautiful peak overlooking a forest in a wedding dress. Although if you can do that, we are so up for that. We encourage couples to go to places they love. This could be the place where you first met, a cafe, or even in your own home. Your story is unique, and your photos should reflect that. If you don’t know where to go, don’t worry. Your photographer should know plenty of beautiful locations that look amazing in photos.
    We aim to start engagement sessions in the early evening. This way your photos get those beautiful golden hour colours. If you don’t know what golden hour is, it’s when the sun is setting and it makes every photo looks like it’s from a Nicholas Sparks movie. Yes, it’s that amazing. Engagement sessions are so important to us. If the weather isn’t looking great, you can always reschedule with your photographer to another evening to make sure you are getting the best photos possible.

    WHEN TO START YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION

    WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION

    After your session, your photographer will curate your photos to make sure you get the best photos possible. The next step is to edit the session. All that means is that they make the colours pop so they get that look that they've perfected. After that, you should get your photos in high resolution, and optimized for social media through an online downloadable gallery. Engagement sessions look amazing as albums, prints, or even canvas that can be used as a guest- book at your wedding. Trust us, you’re going to want one.
