An engagement session is a great opportunity for us to get together and get to know each other a little better. This allows me to show you how I pose, so that on your wedding day you will know exactly what to do! The great thing about engagement sessions is that we get to produce fantastic images for you before the wedding. These could be used for your save the dates or even your invitations. Many of my couples also use these engagement images at their wedding, which is a great idea. Even if you have never had professional images taken of the two of you, we promise to get you comfortable in front of the camera :)
Engagement sessions last between 60 and 90 minutes, depending on the location and style you have selected for your session. The golden hour(s) for photographers are generally right before the sun goes down! If this time has to be changed, we are still confident we can produce wonderful images for you. We love ideas and suggestions for engagement sessions, even though we have a list of our favorites.
If your heart is not set on a location for your engagement session, we are here to help! One of our favorite locations in Wilmington is Fort Fisher. Most of our couples choose this location for many reasons but the main on is it's just SO beautiful. Another favorite of ours is the sand dunes on Wrightsville Beach. You can't go wrong with either of these spots if you are a bit adventurous. For our couples wanting to really dress up for their session, we recommend Downtown Wilmington. There are so many different looks you can get Downtown including brick paved streets, ivy covered walls (personal favorite), rooftop views and the riverwalk at sunset.
Are we traveling to your engagement session? If so, we help you with location ideas based on your personality as a couple. Adventurous? Let's find an overlook or pretty landscape that may require some hiking. We also love to shoot in a city scene if that is more your style.
