Ideas for Planning Your Engagement Session
If you want your pictures to really showcase your love story, we have some ideas to help you plan the perfect engagement session. Check them out:
- Where did you first meet?
If you want to add some sentimental value to your session, tell me about how you first met. If it was at a local place, we can stop by during your session and recreate the scene.
- What do you like to do together?
What kinds of activities do you enjoy doing together? This will help us to create memorable photos for you. Do you love riding your bikes together or racing model airplanes? Do you go to the park and push each other on the swings or playing laser tag together? Tell us your hobbies and we will try to incorporate them.
- Where/how did he propose?
We would love to recreate this moment for you during your session. This is the moment you decided to spend the rest of your lives together. This is important, especially if we were not able to capture this moment as it was actually happening. We want you to be able to share your proposal story with photos to go along with it!
- What are your common interests?
By informing us of your interests, we can add a more personal touch to your photos. Are you both fans of the same sports team? Are you really into comic books or video games? Do you work in the same profession?
- Do you have any pets together?
If so, they make a perfect addition to your session. We welcome your pets in your e-session.
- Do you have ‘a spot’?
You know that place where you always wind up going on date night? Where was your first kiss? What is your favorite hang out spot? Tell us your favorite go-to locations and we can check them out to see if they would be good spots for a photo shoot. Some people love the Palace of Fine Arts, the Marin Headlands, the Financial District or Baker Beach. Sometimes a favorite location is just the thing. These are just some ideas to help plan for your session. Looking for some inspiration? Check out some of my previous engagement sessions HERE.
