Q: When do you typically hold your Engagement & Lifestyle sessions?
A: Because I shoot weddings on the weekends and need to spend time with my family when I’m not, I prefer to only shoot lifestyle/engagement /portrait sessions on weekdays. I typically shoot in the afternoons- 3pm’ish in the fall and winter months; 6pm’ish in the spring and summer months.
Q: What should I wear to my Lifestyle Engagement or Portrait Session?
A: Well, chances are I probably don’t know you’re exact style. BUT, what I do know is if you’re interested in my style of photography, you’re not the matching jeans and black polo shirt type. I do encourage color, even if it’s just in your accessories, and some mild patterns. But definitely wear outfits that show character and personality and something that you would wear on a regular basis. You can bring 2 outfits and most couples bring one casual and one smart casual/dressier. For an Engagement Session, I would highly recommend getting your hair and makeup done. For more ideas on what to wear, feel free to cruise and peruse my Lifestyle Engagement sessions and Portrait sessions on the blog! Bottom line- let’s capture your love and lifestyle as it truly is.
Q: Do you choose the location of our session for us?
A: Not fully. I choose to collaborate with you on where you would like to hold your sess ion. You know you’re speed of life, style and comfort zone way more than I obviously do. But, I definitely have a hand in helping to figure out where to shoot.
