Fall in love with your fiance all over again during your engagement session. Engagement sessions are a really fun way to get excited for your upcoming wedding and have a great time making awesome images.
Engagement photos can be used in many ways. This session is most likely your first “family session” so you can get some great new prints to put on your wall at home or to give to family. They are also perfect for wedding announcement / save the date cards.
I do all my engagement sessions on location all over Door County. The Door Peninsula is such a beautiful place with many great places to serve as a backdrop for your engagement session. I would love to go to your favorite Door County locations or show you some of mine. Along the way we will make some wonderful photos.
About Your Engagement Session
An engagement session is about 1.5-2 hours long.
During this time, we’ll have lots of time to visit a few different locations and get creative with your photos. We’ll capture both posed shots of you two along with some more natural and candid shots. There’s even enough time built in to allow for an outfit change or two.This will give your photos a lot of variety, which is important when choosing photos for your save-the-date’s or wedding announcements.
Booking Your Session
The booking process is easy. Contact me through the form below or give me a call (920-495-2029) to check availability. Then we will find a perfect setting for your photos. I like to shoot portrait sessions outdoors because I feel a natural setting make for the very best images. If you have a special place that you have in mind, that’s great! If not, I have many places in mind that I would love to suggest.
Included in all of my pricing is my time photographing during the session and the time it takes to cull and post-process your images.
To hold your time slot for your session, I simply require a non-refundable 50% deposit of the session price. This will lock in the date of your session. I will e-mail you an electronic invoice if you would like to pay online, or you may mail a check. The balance of the session is due upon image delivery.
I will deliver all the culled images from your session. I don’t want to make you pick and choose only a handful. They way I see it is they are your photos and you should get them all. It takes about 2 weeks to finish your images from your session. At that time I will send you a link to your own private online gallery. You’ll be able to view, share, and download your images right from the page.
Along with your image downloads, you will receive a print release. There is no minimum print purchase requirements and you will be able to print your photos wherever you wish. Though I don’t require that you purchase prints from me, I highly suggest you do.
Through my landscape photography, I have learned how to get the perfect print. Many big box print labs are cheap, but they differ in paper choice, color accuracy, sharpness, photo brightness, and overall quality.
The best way to guarantee the highest quality print possible is to order right through your online gallery. I work closely with the same professional printing lab partners I use for my fine art prints and together we ensure you get the perfect prints.
Do you need engagement photos now but not yet ready to book a wedding photographer? That’s no problem. That’s exactly why I offer standalone engagement sessions.
I offer complimentary engagement sessions with my wedding packages. So if you book an engagement session now and choose to book me for your wedding, you can apply 100% of the cost towards a wedding photography package.
