ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS

We can shoot any date you’re ready.  Most couples shoot 3-6 months before their wedding.  On the day of the shoot, we recommend 1-2 hours before Sunset for best outdoor lighting.  Please check sunset times here.

We book engagement sessions Monday-Thursdays, and select Sundays.  Saturdays are not available for sessions.

Standard Engagement Session is 1 hour, 1 location.
Premium Engagement Session is 2 hours, 2 locations.
Additional time is $700/hr.

AVOID: Neon colors, contrasty patterns/prints, Met Gala fashion.

YES: Neutral colors, solids, comfy, casual, dressy, accessories, black, white, “This will look good in 10 years”

For multiple locations, we recommend an outfit change to spice things up.  Most clients change in their cars.

Ladies bring sandles/comfortable shoes.  Some clients bring props to add to the shoot but they’re not required.  Keep it light because we’ll walk to various spots.  It’s generally best to leave everything in the car and just enjoy the photoshoot.

Can I bring my pet?  Yes absolutely!  However, we’ll only need the animal for a few minutes, so please plan on leaving them safely in your car or bring a sitter/friend to take care of them.

Please choose a location from below or suggest any places that you like.  We’re always interested in going somewhere new.

When choosing a location, avoid sentimental or landmark tourist spots unless those they are quiet, not-crowded, low-traffic, and have lots of room for us to play in.  Engagement session should be about two of you, not taking a tourist photo.  Our aim is to create a gorgeous portrait that will last for decades, not an instance for social media.

Photographer travel: no charge to anywhere in LA/OC Counties.  San Diego/Ventura/Santa Barbara $300. All other locations, please inquire.
