Congratulations on choosing to include an engagement photo session in your wedding photography package! Now, what's next? Don't stress, I'm here to make this journey fun and unforgettable for you!

 

Location

Let's start with the location. Perhaps you have a special place or memories that could serve as a wonderful theme for your session. If not, we'll select a location together that will look fantastic in your photos. With over a decade of experience shooting in Ottawa, I have countless great ideas and locations to share with you.

 

What to wear

Coordinate your outfits by choosing pieces that complement each other without being too matchy-matchy. Opt for solid colors or very subtle patterns that won't distract from your connection. Keep in mind that the choice of outfits will also depend on the location, theme, and season we select for your session.

Prints and patterns are a definite NOThis includes logos. Avoid prints of any kind and patterns. No matter how small the print or the pattern, it will become a distraction.

Don't wear matching clothes.

  • Some people like this look where everyone is in the same shirt and khaki pants. And in some instances, this may work. But most of the time it can make the photo look dated and flat. Instead…

The accessories are awesome.

  • Scarfs, hats, and jewelry are great ways to add to an outfit and give your images more visual interest. 

Comfort is Key

  • Wear clothes that you feel comfortable and confident in. Avoid anything too tight or restrictive, as you want to be able to move freely during the session.

Be Yourself

  • The most important thing is to be yourselves. Your engagement photos should reflect your personalities and relationship, so don't be afraid to let your true selves shine through.

Practice Posing

  • Before the session, practice some basic posing techniques together to feel more comfortable in front of the camera. Experiment with different poses and find what feels natural for you as a couple.

Relax and Have Fun

  • Remember to relax and enjoy the experience! As your photographer I will guide you through the session and capture the genuine moments between you. Trust my expertise and focus on enjoying the moment with your partner.
