Whether you are dating, soon to be married or have been married for years, there is something dynamic about photographing two people in love. It doesn’t require acting or pretending, maybe just a little direction. It is my goal to capture your personality. I focus more on capturing moments, real moments, with each other like laughing, hugging and playing together because those are the moments you remember! These sessions can take place at a outdoor location or in your home for a more intimate session.
Couples Sessions include a 60-90 minute session, digital download from a beautiful online gallery, and rights to print on your own ($350 when added as an engagement session onto a Wedding Photography package)
Contract and Deposit We will decide on a date and location. Typically sessions will begin an hour before sunset. Once details are decided, a signed contract and 50% retainer will be required to book your session. I will send you a contract and invoice via email. You can sign and pay online! After I receive these two things, your time and date will be reserved!
The Session My favorite part! We will either meet in your home or at an outdoor location and go from there! Be prepared to have some fun because we'll likely be jumping, running, laughing, laying in the grass and snuggling up close.
Weather Clouds are actually great for photographs! They block out the harsh shadows. If it’s sunny, we will search for the shadows no problem. If the weather on the day of the session looks like it’s going to rain, storm, or be unbearably hot or cold we will reschedule.
Processing and Edits The editing process takes 2-3 weeks. All photographs will be edited to photographer’s judgement. You will receive a mix of color and black and white images.
Delivery You will receive a link to your online gallery where you can then download your photographs. This online gallery will be yours to share as well! Be sure to save these photographs in a safe place on your computer because I will only hold them for 1 year.
Products If you decide to purchase any prints, cards, albums, or flash drives these will be completed and mailed to you after all final edits. This process could take 2-4 weeks depending on the product.
TIPS FOR YOUR SESSION
Style and Outfits Coordinate colors, but don't match. Pick a couple of colors and stay within that color scheme. Textured fabrics photograph very well! Mix a solid with a texture or mix a neutral with a color. Layers photograph really well!
What to Avoid Avoid clothes with characters, writing, or large logos on them. Avoid wearing just black and white. Avoid showing too much skin and neon colors. You don’t want anything to distract from your good lookin' faces!
Accessories and Shoes Keep it simple. Add in a bracelet, a fun ring or a scarf. Accessories can be fun and look great, but less is more. As for shoes, these can be fun as well but you don’t want them to be distracting. Avoid wearing flip flops.
Men Shy away from wearing tank tops. Be sure to shave your face before your session, unless your style is to rock some facial hair then be sure to trim it up so you don’t look too messy.
Ladies Do go slightly heavier on the make up because it really shows up in photographs. Be sure to paint your nails right before your session because chips can be distracting. We all want that sun kissed glow, but I don't recommend getting a spray tan the day before or overdoing it because it can cause unwanted lines and look dirty. We don’t want that!
