What is an engagement shoot? Simply put, it’s a portrait session for a couple who are engaged. Oftentimes (but not always!) these shoots are done early in an engagement and the images are used to announce the engagement or included in save-the-dates or wedding invitations. I encourage folks to pick their favorite spot or activity, and I am happy to go shoot anywhere in the greater Bay Area (and even beyond, depending on the location).
Engagement photo sessions are a great way to celebrate this season in your life. As you’re running around, planning all of the details of your upcoming wedding, an engagement session is a way to slow down, pause, and just enjoy each other and your relationship as it is *right now*. I love doing engagement photos – to see you in your element (whatever that may be) and to get to know you two a little bit better. Because of this, I include a complimentary engagement session with all of my wedding packages! I *highly* encourage every couple to take advantage of this and do one, even if they hadn’t considered it before. I find that it is invaluable for building rapport with my clients – helping them to really get to know me and my shooting style and to feel even more comfortable and confident going into their wedding photos.
