6 Tips for a Gorgeous Session

Hello there, lovely! We know you've been busy planning your perfect wedding day, and bask­ing in the engagement glow from that beautiful rock on your finger. We created this guide just for you, to share some our best tips for your en­gagement session. 

Your engagement photos are a celebration 
of your love for each other, taken in a safe place without lots of pressure. We think engagement sessions are such an important part of wedding photography, and we've written this article to ensure you have the perfect engagement session with your love! 

Tip 01

Session Vision

When you think of your engagement session, what do you visualize? An open field? Urban brick?
A weeping willow tree?

What is it that feels true to you? Are there any special locations or favourite date spots that might be ideal for your engage­ment shoot? If not, don't fret, lovely! A lot of our couples leave the location scouting up to us, and we know some great spots near & far that always look amazing on camera. However, if there is a place that's uniquely special to the two of you make sure to tell us! If you want to include a family heirloom, a pet, or something else that's meaningful to your love story, we are here to help incorporate it into your engagement session! 

Tip 02

Fashion + Wardrobe

Don't feel like you need to go on a shopping spree for your session, but this is officially your excuse if your Aritzia cart has that gorgeous dress you've been eyeing!

We want you to be comfortable - we want you to connect with your images - so if you are a jeans and tee kinda gal, then rock it with a fun colour! Our couples bring an outfit change to their session. Most choose for a dressier option (flowy maxi dress) and a casual option (jeans and a fun shirt).
I am always open to chat wardrobe (hello, I am a girl who loves to shop!). Don't feel like you have to go for plain classics the entire time. Have fun with colour, texture, and prints! This is to remember this special time in your lives, so don't limit yourself! 

Tip 03

Pro hair + Makeup

I cannot stress this enough, girls! Really! Professional hair and makeup make a world of a difference. As a photographer, it excites me to know my gals are spending a day getting pampered before their session. lt allows you to relax, feel beautiful, and confident! Nothing like a set of lashes to bring out your inner model. Consider using this time as a test run with your makeup artist and use your session as a time to evaluate your wedding day look and how it photographs. Ladies, if you can swing it, please consider getting your hair & makeup done for your session! I promise you it will make a world of a difference and you will look and feel absolutely beautiful. 

Tip 04


Timing is everything for your session. As natural light photographers, we plan our engagement sessions around the lighting of the day. We usually begin them an hour or so prior to sunset, which will allow for an outfit change while shooting during the golden hour. Being on time ensures that we do not go into your session time, so showing up on time and ready will help yield great results! Once the sun goes down, there isn't much we can do, so staying on track of timing and lighting is the best way to ensure gorgeous images. This also means that at times we may have to reschedule due to weather if you're looking for those sun kissed images. 

Tip 05


This is the whole reason you chose your photographer, right? Because they know the best lighting, the best poses, and the best techniques to make you two look and feel your very best. Now it's time for you to take a deep breath and trust the person you chose to do their best work with you. The more trust you place in your photographer, they will be able to create the types of images that you'll love the most. You're going to feel uncomfortable, awkward, and alllllll the things! In between those little moments of awkwardness come authentic interactions that can only happen when two people are in love. Relinquish the control, give trust out freely, and let go of your expectations!

Tip 06


This is such an exciting time in your lives. We know that engagement sessions can seem awkward but it's important to go into them with an open mind and the ability to laugh. We want you two to love each other, and just have fun. We will laugh through the process and help you with prompts. Your only job: snuggle in close, bat your eye lashes, and laugh until your belly aches. It's going to be fun, we might finish the session with a bottle of wine, and we promise you that you will love seeing these beautiful images of the two of you for years to come. Engagement sessions are the perfect time to hang out with your photographer, get comfortable in front of the camera, and flirt with your soon-to-be spouse! What more could a girl ask for? 

She made us feel comfortable, she made us laugh and she created art from one of the most important times in our lives.
