What's in the ngagement Collection?
The smiles that you share, the laughter, the glimmer in your eyes.
Your love is shining brightly!
Cherish this time in your lives because love is like an old oak tree. Every year it grows, it bends in the wind, it sheds its leaves in the fall to regrow new ones in the spring just like we find new ways to love the one who holds our heart.
When you look back on your senior portraits, are you the same person that you were then? Of course not, you've grown, matured, gained wisdom, strength, etc.
Just imagine 40 years from now looking back at your engagement album and giggling with one another because you were so young and thought you had life all figured out. Just starting the journey that would evolve into your love story.
Take a walk with me through the experience.
Engagement Portrait Planning Session
A creative meeting of the minds to decide which direction we are headed with the portraits. Usually we meet at the bride-to-be's or mother's home and it takes about an hour to get everything planned out.
We discuss things like:
Outfits; Are we going to match them to the wedding color scheme?
Where is the photoshoot; Out in a field, at a local park, where you were proposed to, etc?
Are there any specific images that you've been dreaming of?
Do you have a wall space that you want to fill in your home?
I will email you the plans we created during the meeting so you don't have to worry about keeping up with it all. One less thing to stress about as we get closer and closer to the big day.
We meet at the location we chose in our planning session and the photoshoot will last around two hours.
Yes, you can change outfits and move around to different locations within that two hours as time allows. Yes, include your pets! They are part of the family too. I love my pupper like she was my child.
We will share plenty of laughs and smiles as you two enjoy sweet little moments together.
After the photoshoot, I will email you some viewing days to choose from within that week. It usually takes 3 to 4 days for the images to be ready.
I get so excited to share them with you!
Engagement Reveal Get-Together
This is the best part! You get to see your gorgeous images.
Usually, we meet again at the same place we held the planning session and I bring snacks to make it a party. Depending on your preference, it could be wine and cheese or popcorn and soda.
Invite your closest friends and family if you'd like. All of your images will be on a USB so we can play them on the big screen TV. This isn't a sales session, it's honestly just a reveal. So you don't have to worry about sales pitches.
I take the time to show you how to access your online gallery, how to share it, and how to purchase extra prints from it when you are ready.
We will pick the image for the gallery wrap to display at the reception. We will also pick which images you want printed to display on the tables. Getting everything done early will ensure it is ready for the big day.
This is also a great time to ask questions. You can comfortably ask me about wall portraits or finding other products like metal or wood prints because I'm not a salesman. I'm here to help you find what you want.
After the reveal party, I will email you the details of what's next. Always keeping you in the loop.
This is my favorite part! I love, love, love bringing you these custom heirloom albums and watching your eyes light up. I know you will remember all the perfect moments from your engagement session. I also know that there are stories to be told to future generations when you show them someday.

Covid 19 Updates
As you know, Covid 19 has changed how the world interacts. Rest assured we are taking precautions to protect both your family and our own.
I pride myself on being a very personal photographer that enjoys sitting down with you to plan and to deliver images. However, during this time we are able to make exceptions when needed. Video calls are available for planning sessions to limit our exposure.
