57 Ideas For Your Engagement Session

The number one question I receive from my couples is “What should we do for our engagement session? “. Wanna know something? I LOVE this question! Your engagement session is complimentary through my Wedding Experiences and is one of my favorite parts of this entire journey.

Your engagement session is not only a great opportunity for us three to bond but it’s for you to get familiar being in front of the camera and embrace your inner model! Come wedding day, you will be a Pro and the thought of submitting your headshots to GQ Magazine will cross your mind. So how do we get there?

The key to rocking your engagement session is to make it personal and enjoyable. During all of my sessions, I make a point to capture beautiful portraits of you two smiling while looking at the camera, gazing into one another’s eyes  and creating memories that will be printed for Grandma’s wallet faster than you can say “cheese”. However, I implore my couples to go even beyond that and think about personalization. What do you enjoy doing together? Are there any locations that symbolize something special for your relationship? Would your shared interests make for an amazing photo op?


Here are some amazing ideas to inspire your upcoming engagement session!
