Engagement Photography

A Typical Engagement Session...

Your engagement session is essentially a portrait session of you and your future spouse. Some clients decide to do an engagement session for a specific purpose. Sometimes it's for Save the Dates, to have pictures displayed at the wedding reception, or to be incorporated into a registry or wedding website. It is also a perfect opportunity to have professional photographs taken of you two together during this time in your lives. The engagement period is a very special time in your relationship, and being able to commemorate that with pictures of you both together is not something to miss out on.

Wear what makes you feel good and makes you feel comfortable. There really is not anything wrong no matter what you choose.
