Planning your engagement session doesn’t have to be stressful.
We have guides on many things but maybe one of the most important aspects of your engagement session being prepared with your own items. We always encourage our couples to plan together with a few things from home that will help make the engagement session more comfortable and will help keep things running smoothly.
1. Comfortable Shoes
Despite the outfit choices you are planning to wear, for both men and women, they aren’t always as comfortable as they are stylish. We always suggest that both guys and gals bring a separate pair of shoes that are comfortable flats or slip-ons so they can put them on while we are walking between locations. We want you to be as prepared and as comfortable as possible for the entirety of your shoot.
2. Props & Accessories
We have many couples who come to us with ideas for props and accessories of all kinds. We love it!
We encourage every couple we meet to find something that will show off their personalities. This might be jerseys, hats, or even wild socks for a fun twist or something more practical like a blanket for fall engagement sessions or a elegant umbrella if rain is in the forecast.
We love when couples have ideas and we definitely encourage you to let us know ahead of time and be sure to bring all items with you to your session. This will help save time and add a fun element to the session as a whole.
While we do enjoy a glass or two ourselves, we find that champagne does help to keep things light at your engagement session. As much as we, the photographers, would like to believe that everyone we meet loves to be in front of the camera, we know that’s far from true. That being said, we have years of experience and training in posing and coaching that will make things as easy for the couple as possible during their engagement session.
Bringing comfortable shoes, props and accessories of your choosing, and a bit of champagne if you wish, are our top suggestions for our couples to fully enjoy and relax during the engagement session. We are so excited to shoot your engagement session and if you’re as excited as we are, contact us here.
