PLANNING ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

Planning Your Engagement Session

As an engagment photographer we know that planning your photo session with a professional photographer like myself is important to creating beautiful candid photos.

We love when couples getting married have us take their engagement photos.  There are so many benefits to having us your wedding photographer be the one to photograph your engagement session.  

Plan Your Portraits With Your Photographer

Amazing engagement photos always begin with a plan. A good plan starts with a goal and reverse engineers the desired outcome. In this case great engagement photographs.

Engagement Photo Products

Plan your photography products before your session. Consider your space and where the images might end up on a wall, engagement album or both. You would be surprised how many people don't consider this.  See our products page for engagement photo ideas.

Photography Styles

We are a blend of candid and traditional styles. Candid photos emphasize photographing moments.  An example is photographing a couple making ice cream sundays, or renting a tandem bike and recording their adventure. While a traditional style has my engaged couple more camera aware, or looking at my camera in their pictures.  Traditional portraits are also more formally posed.

Best Engagement spots in Orange County and Los Angeles

Urban, natural, eclectic, studio (location fees some locations have fees for photography, some locations prohibit photography)

Wardrobe Sets The Tone Of A Portrait

Wardrobe choices will have a large impact on your engagement photos.

We Love Fur Babies AKA Puppies 

If you don't want to leave your fur baby out of the picture be sure to recruit a handler to take your animals after we get the shot and moved on to more focused photography of you and your fiance. Let's also plan on getting any shots with that fuzzy member of the family done first. We love dogs. To find out how many I personally have visit the about page.
