Love it's worth celebrating!
Maybe you have been together a couple years, maybe you have been together ten of them! I want to capture this amazing season of your life in a way that is absolutely your so we will let your personalities shine !
These couple portrait sessions are laid back, natural flowing with a bit of direction.
I want to capture you as naturally as possible!
Think of it as a special date night with some extra PDA! The result? A collection of photos of your happy selves, your love and relationship .
All sessions include the best of your session fully edited with high resolution files delivered in a private online gallery.
Average of photos per session is 35-65 and additional copies in B&W
Couples sessions usually last 1.5 hours, ideally we can schedule it in the evening. I like to take advantage of the best natural light, which is two hours before sunset. I’m always up for shooting in the early morning as well.
Portrait sessions are ideally scheduled on a weekday evening or a Sunday. While it’s not always possible to schedule on a weekday evening, I recommend to do this since parks and many locations are less busy.
Scheduling the date for the couples session will vary on what you would like to use the photos for and the season.
For Engagement session and Save the Dates are pre-invitations usually sent out at least 5-6 months before the wedding.
In the start of wedding season (April-May) I book 1-2 months in advance. In the busier September and October, I book 2-3 in advance and weekends are usually booked first.
I am so happy to send suggestions, ideas and examples of locations. I love a good road trip and I absolutely adore knowing new locations! So I’m always up for scouting new and unique locations for you
Choosing a unique location is a great idea, something that’s reflective of you both or that is special to you
Think about things that inspire you: nature, the city, a place that has sentimental meaning for you or that’s fun or related to t your hobbies, careers, or passions.
This goes hand in hand with your style. You may like a city block with interesting looking store fronts, an art museum, or a building with geometric architecture. You may instead like a colorful outdoor market or a picnic may be an option. Parks and city skylines are also a great option.
Permits are sometimes required so check the policies for any place you have in mind. Some other locations just need a phone call in advance to make sure professional photography is okay.
Like the location, your outfits should also be a reflection of you. Generally I think it's a good idea to dress more casually for these as you'll be more formal on your wedding day.
Think about the colors and style of any potential locations and how you can compliment them with your outfits.
I’m flexible with whatever you’d like to wear. This is your session and I recommend no more than two outfits in order to maximize our time together. If you want to bring more it’s totally fine, but it may have an impact on the amount of time we’ll have shooting together!
This are just a few tips to help plan for your session, but please remember this is your session! Make it personal, make it about you. and have FUN!
There is nothing better than a good cup of coffee or a glass of wine with new friends, let’s go for one!
If you are far away, let's Facetime or Skype!
I'd love to hear about you!
