What is an engagement session?
An engagement session is basically a portrait session of you and your loved one before the actual Big Day. Couples opt for this shoot to incorporate these pictures in the decorations of their wedding reception, or sometimes just to have a memorabilia of their time together which they can adore in their old age.
How does an engagement shoot work?
We start of by picking a location and time for the shoot together. On the day of shoot we meet at a per-determined location and just then the magic will begin. I won’t ask you to pose, instead I will set you in ‘poses’ in the most natural manner; which means i will look out for interesting, engaging backgrounds with beautiful lighting and then tell you to pose however in the way you are most comfortable in. I might instruct you to walk down a road and just when I see that perfect giggle, or loving little embrace I will capture it.
How do we pick a location for our engagement session?
If you have a location in mind, I’d love to hear about it! Many clients know where they’d like to shoot but for those who don’t; worry not I have an amazing list of picturesque places in Sacramento that can serve as the perfect spot for engagement pictures! However, keep one thing in mind this session has to be at some place that holds meaning to you so I’d advise not to go for ‘must shoot ‘ or ‘Pinterest inspired’ places.
