- preparing for your session -

So, You're Engaged?


I love taking engagement photos for you newly engaged couples.  The best sessions are the ones where the client is prepared with all of the information they need to know ahead of time, so I want to answer some frequently asked questions to help to prepare for your session!

1. How do I book you for an engagement session?
Contact me via my contact form and let's discuss my availability and your time frame and if everything works we can secure your date with a 50% deposit and agreement.  The balance is due on the day of the session.

2. How long is the session?
Engagement sessions last 2 hours and I typically shoot 2 after at sunrise or 2 hours before sunset for ideal lighting.

3. Where do we take the photos?
We talk about your love story and determine a location based on what we've discussed.  Any location that requires a permit or fee is the responsibility of the client.

4. What should I wear?
I love when my couples plan 2 outfits. I will provide you with additional information to help you prep for your session after booking.

5. How long does it take to receive the photos?
I deliver the final edited image gallery within 14 days of the session. You will receive the high-resolution images delivered in an online image gallery to view, share and download. 

6. What happens in the case of inclement weather?
If we have scheduled an outdoor session and rain is in the forecast, we will either look at alternate locations or reschedule your session in the case of a wash out and no indoor locations are suitable. 

7. Can you help us determine a location for photos?
Absolutely!! Based on what look you want for your photos, we can discuss the best shooting locations.

8. What is your area of coverage for photos?
I cover Northern VA and DC.  I cover other areas as well but it may require a travel fee.  Please inquire for exact locations!

I love being able to document milestones in the lives of my clients. Whether an annual family portrait session, branded headshots for entrepreneurs, a "just because" session between sweethearts, or an "I Still Do" Anniversary session for my married clients, professional photos are the perfect way to document this journey. Sessions last 60 minutes and clients can expect to receive 50 high-resolution digital images in an online gallery. Heirloom art and albums may be purchased a la carte.
