The Engagement Session


Every wedding collection includes a complimentary engagement session!

The engagement session is truly an unforgettable experience... for both the couple and for me!  It gives us an opportunity to get to know one another.  This is the time to have some fun and learn how you, as the couple, look and feel your best in front of my camera!

Posing

Many of my couples come to me and say "Hannah, I'm nervous.  We have no idea what we're doing!".  Well, that's a good thing!  Most couples walk into their engagement session having no idea what to do and what to expect! THAT'S OK!  Posing is something I excel in, so you just need to show up feeling your best and I'll do the rest!

Posed vs. unposed

My style of posing is definitely more laid back.  I enjoy having fun and laughing along with my couples so candid shots tend to be some of my best and favored work!  While I do initially suggest each pose, every couple gets to put their own twist on it so every gallery exemplifies that couple's unique personality and love story!  Don't worry, I still get those traditional "smile and say cheese" photos.  Let's face it.  That's what Grandma and Aunt Helen are going to expect!

Wardrobe & location

Some couples have planned their engagement session before they even hire me.  Others let me take the reigns and we start from scratch!  The choice is yours!  I keep a running list of amazing locations and I have a Pinterest board with outfit ideas and themes!  These are YOUR photos and I want you to love them!  I am here to help any way I can!
