HERE ARE MY REASONS FOR AN E-SESSION, AFTER 10 YEARS AND 200 COUPLES...
Over the past 10 years, I have worked with over 200 couples to capture their wedding day! Throughout that time I found one very important common denominator in making our time together successful .... having an engagement session prior to the wedding. It’s so important for me, as your wedding photographer, to get to know you as a couple and how you interact with one another. It’s also a really productive time to help you feel comfortable in front of my camera and with me personally.
The engagement session is that time where your photographer can see if you fall into poses naturally and comfortably, whether PDA bothers you or not and what poses work best for the two of you. Every person and every couple is different, so not every pose will look or feel natural for every couple. Also, some couples need a little more coaxing to get their emotions to show naturally through the camera lens. These tidbits of information are crazy important to how I can show up and serve you through my work. It’s also so much easier to find and work through any concerns through an engagement session rather than the wedding day! #notamodel
“We are so awkward in front of the camera''
Guess who else says that? Pretty much everyone who steps in front of my camera. YOU ARE NOT ALONE and I got you! Remember you are likely not a model...so you don’t have to have it all figured out! Having done this for over a decade, I know how to get you past your self proclaimed awkwardness, by providing an environment where you feel comfortable to have fun and be candid with one another.
Your session can serve as a makeup and hair trial run with your glam squad! Don’t let that trial run go to waste, use it for your e-session!
What Can We Expect?
E-sessions are a time to have fun, laugh a lot and get comfortable in front of the camera. You can’t do anything “wrong”! These sessions are also INSANELY important, as they capture a very special and often short-lived time of great anticipation in your life. Depending on where we go and what we do, your session will last from 60-90 min. You can bring an outfit change but certainly aren’t required to. I will prep you with what to bring to the session so you don't have to fret beforehand...but always feel free to pack any extra’s you want to bring along, just in case.
Within 3 weeks of your session, you will have your 75-100 online gallery delivered to your inbox for instant download.
In years to come, you will never look back on this time in your life and regret having all these extra fun pictures of your engagement. So, if you are on the fence about whether you need one or not, I 100% encourage you to go for it! Show up excited for your e-session and thankful that it means you are one step closer to marrying your best friend.
Engagement sessions are included in our full-day wedding coverage collection or available for an a la carte option for $699 + GST.
