My job is to make your experience as fun and easy as possible! I want to answer ALL your questions before you even know you have them so that when you're ready to book, it will all be easy breezy and you can focus on getting PUMPED!
If you want to use your photos on your invitations or save the dates, book the session for at least 1 month before you need to order!
I also recommend doing your photos in a different season then you're getting married in. It will add some variety to your photos and will look great side by side on your wall (hint: print your engagement and wedding photos! They're the most personalized home decor ever!)
Need some ideas? These are just a few suggestions, but here are some of my favourite spots in a few different areas:
Bud Miller Park
Whitemud Creek Ravine
Marwayne Trestle Bridge
Old Fort Point, Jasper
Jasper Park Lodge
I'm always down to travel to the mountains; if you want to visit any of these locations, I'm happy to discount travel fees!
Spray Lakes; Kananaskis Region
Your own home:
Where you make your coffee, where you unwind, your happy place. Aka, the perfect place for engagement photos!
The side of the road!:
Don't underestimate the beauty of an open field, a pasture, a small stand of trees, a backroad. We don't need a crazy view to make stunning photos.
North Side of the River
Most jewelry stores will clean rings for free; take your ring in for cleaning before your session so its super sparkly in your photos!
Your engagement session is the perfect time to try out wedding makeup or get to know your wedding hairstylist. Professional hair and makeup really takes your photos to the next level.
If you have specific photo ideas or concepts you really love, send them to me! Let's daydream together and make your session 1000% you!
We want you to be the focus, not the outfits!
Stick to one colour family; coordinate, but don't match. Look at this example - the blue dress with white florals, combined with the grey shirt and blue jeans, helps the look feel balanced without matching.
Choose pastel or jewel tones if possible, and avoid bold patterns and big prints. Subtle patterns, like on this floral dress, are great! (make sure only one of you is wearing a pattern if so; otherwise, it gets busy!)
Start with clothes that you both feel like YOURSELVES in. Your photos should feel like you, so wear something that feels natural to you! Dress up, dress down, or somewhere in between, but keep it true to you!
Bring a second outfit if you want to! If you can't decide, or if you want to have two different looks in your gallery, one casual and one a bit fancier, feel free to bring an outfit change! Let me know if you brought another, and we can plan the session accordingly!
