Frequently Asked QuestionsWhy have an engagement session?
Besides providing you with beautiful, emotional portraits in a causal setting, your engagement session allows us to get to know each other before the big day. Knowing what to expect and feeling more relaxed in front of the camera will help us capture exceptional portraits on your wedding day.
Added bonus is that they go much faster on your wedding day, which means you might get to pop in for your cocktail reception and begin the party early!
For a stand-alone session, the fee is $600 and that includes a custom designed reception book and an online gallery. You’ll also receive a discount on any additional purchases that are made at your ordering session like digital files, prints, canvas or Save the Date cards.
Our dates start to fill in fast, especially during the summer and fall wedding season. To hold your date, you will need to select one of packages or have a custom package made up for you, sign the contract, and pay a $1800 retainer fee that is applied towards your final balance. All of this can be done through our easy online booking system – no stamps or driving required!
We will send you a questionnaire that will help you think about where you hang out, maybe where you met, a hobby you share, or something really enjoying doing together.
