Engagement Session Planning!


Hey friend! Can I call you that yet? Well I sure will be able to after our session! I'll be third wheeling it the whole time with you two! (insert laughing gif)


The engagement session is one of my favorite parts of our time together because it gives you both a chance to be in front of my camera before you get married. Which is going to make your wedding day experience feel so smooth, seamless, and comfortable. I'm so excited to capture the only time in your life when you get the be each other's fiances!


I hope this guide serves as a point of reference for you as we start planning your session! I've included tips from what to expect to locations!


First  things  first,


As far as locations go, you can literally go anywhere!  I do include 60 miles of travel from Reading, PA. I have traveled to the beach, up north, the options are really endless!!  


Do you have any places in mind that are special to you two?  


A favorite bar, restaurant, park, or favorite place to go?  If nothing comes to mind, don't worry!  I have a ton of location ideas I can throw your way!!  You just let me know if you have a certain style and look location wise you're going for, and I will do my best to help bring your vision to life.  If you're thinking adventure I also have some awesome places as well
