First and foremost:
Your engagements will be fun! It's a great time for us to hang out and get to know each other. I never want photography to feel like a necessary evil--the goal is to have a good time and let you guys obsess over each other for an evening.
Hair + Makeup:
It's not necessarily true that more makeup looks better in photos. But engagements are a great time to test out your hair and makeup for your wedding day! I definitely recommend getting your hair and makeup done, but at the end of the day it's whatever you feel most comfortable with!
What to wear:
The most important thing is that you feel like YOU. Dresses are great, but I love when couple's take a casual approach as well. And because of my shooting style, you'll want to wear something you're comfortable moving around in. I made a Pinterest board if you want some more inspiration click here. Also if you have two outfits you love equally, you are welcome to change halfway through the session!
Turnaround time for engagements is 2 weeks, so make sure we've picked a date that leaves time for you to send out invitations. The shoot usually takes an hour to an hour and a half!
