We’re behind the camera, of course, but we also get to know you on a personal level so we can capture your relationship accordingly. Read ahead for how we plan the session. By the end of the day, we hope you’ll join us for a celebratory cocktail or shared meal.
To get to the heart of who you are as a couple (and as individuals), we’ll ask you to sit down together and create some lists, which we use to craft a storyboard for your engagement session. We encourage you to talk about the places you love and the things you love to do together. Dream about the future experiences you want to share together, and take notes! Even seemingly inconsequential details can factor into how we approach your engagement session, so it's uniquely yours. We assist you through the entire process, not only helping you select a location but also creating a moodboard that makes you excited. What places tell a story or have special meaning to you? What would your fantasy shoot look like? If you could do anything and go anywhere, what would it be? We’re not afraid to think BIG.
As a husband-and-wife team, we love encouraging couples to think of activities that create incredible new memories: Horseback riding, a hot air balloon ride, or a scenic drive in a classic rental car. We love fresh, new ideas and are happy to rendezvous somewhere off the beaten path.
Wardrobe + Location Storyboard
Using the information you provide, we’ll begin crafting your engagement shoot storyboard. We create moodboards for two different options that reflect some of the dreams you jotted down for our review and align with what we can feasibly do (and what would be most photogenic, too). We always pull inspiration images for you to consider, so you can really envision yourselves in the moments we could capture for either prompt. Perhaps it’s a beach-side brunch followed by a sunset sail, or a city stroll capped off with ice cream at your favorite shop.
Once you’ve chosen the shoot idea that resonates best with you two, we pull together a document that includes top-line information for the day, as well as curated wardrobe suggestions. We hand-pick the clothing options for you and your partner (we’ll even provide shopping links) so they jibe well with the location, season, and your personal preferences. These details make all the difference.
You arrive with your partner, and we’ll handle the rest! We’ll have unlimited time together so there won’t be a rush in how we spend the day. As the day unfolds, we invite you to slow down and enjoy the experience with your spouse-to-be. We’ll be flies on the wall, capturing the emotions and moments that happen naturally (you might even forget we’re snapping pictures of you!).
Our approach is always putting people first, and we like to think that our deep level of personalization is one way our brand stands out. Outside of your wedding day, we believe that our Signature Engagement Experience allows our couples to trust in our work, our process and ultimately, our deliverables. Your engagement session should not be like anyone else’s, so let's create some magic together.
