Ahh CONGRATULATIONS! You’re engaged, getting ready to book your engagement session– and have all the questions. Well, you’re in luck because I’m sharing how you can prepare for your engagement session– after you choose your photographer that is! 😉 (And if you’re looking to hire me, then let’s chat some more!)
First thing to do as you prepare for your engagement session is to: Decide on a Photographer
Obviously in order to have an engagement session you need to have a photographer. The bonus of deciding on your photographer in time for your engagement session, is you get to spend time with them and see how they work. That way you’ll know what to expect on your wedding day and you can be more relaxed!
The next thing you should do as you prepare for your engagement session is to: Decide on a season!
You don’t necessarily have to have your engagement session done the same season you’re getting married in. For instance, if you’re planning a spring wedding, you don’t need to take your engagement photos in the spring.
After deciding on a season and a photographer it’s time to: Decide on a location.
When choosing a location, think about your style. Think about a place that has a special significance to the two of you, like where you went on your first date or where you got engaged.
Lastly, when you’re preparing for your engagement session you want to decide what to wear for your session
This is a lot easier to do when you have the season and the location picked out already. You can decide on if you’d like it dressier or more casual. When it comes to colors, you can’t go wrong with neutrals and some accessories to make a statement! And if you need extra tips, scroll to the bottom of this post for a FREEBIE!
