Let’s get started with planning your engagement session!

Why have an engagement session?

An engagement session with us gives you the opportunity to see how we work! It’s a great insight to how your wedding day will be with us. (In our wedding packages we include a complimentary engagement session but you can also book us just for an engagement session!) It’s just like trying on your wedding dress. You should book an engagement session with your wedding photographer if you’ve never worked together to see if you guys are a good fit.

What should a couple wear for their engagement session?

I send my clients an outfit inspiration board from my Pinterest account! (There’s also tons of wedding inspiration that can be found on our other boards as well!) I like for the brides to wear soft colors and not busy patterns. For my guys I suggest being semi-formal with a nice jean, button down and a tie with a sports coat. I’m also all for when couples go all out and dress to the nines! Really all in all, I want my couples to feel their best and when they feel well dressed and put together, their confidence shows through in their pictures! You also want your outfit simple while letting the landscape add the texture.

Choosing the Ideal Location.

I always ask my clients first what do they envision the outcome of their session to look and feel like. I choose to work with natural light so majority of my location suggestions are outdoors. In Savannah, there is an abundance of romantic and magical locations. Wormsloe Plantation being the top one with it’s mossy oak lined drive. Tybee Island is another one of my top suggestions at sunrise because the light is just so pure and airy and gives such a bright and airy vibe that I strive for in my images. I love using Savannah and it’s surrounding natural outdoor locations.

Bring your personalities!

The best thing you can do when planning for your engagement session and when the day comes is to bring your personalities! You want your photos to represent all about you as a couple and your love for one another.
