Engagement sessions are so much fun! The photography locations in Colorado are STUNNING!
I use engagement sessions to get to know you two love birds before the wedding.
I will see which poses and prompts work for you both to get the best authentic reactions, and I can even help you with guided poses if you aren't quite sure what to do with your hands! I provide all my couple with a Style Guide on what clothing photographs best and I can even help you pick a great location!
Engagement Sessions are $800 when purchased a la carte.
An engagement session takes about one hour to an hour and half, depending on location, time of year, and if you bring your dog (Please bring your dog). We have a ton of fun and take amazing photos.
You should bring 1 to 2 outfits. I suggest 1 polished casual outfit and one dressy outfit. I can help you pick out options that not only will photograph well but will reflect your style and personality. I have a style guide that will help you out too!
YES!!!! Please bring your dog! I love when my clients make their session truly their own! When you bring your pup to your session don't forget a friend to help hold them while we are taking other pics!
There are TONS of great places in Colorado for your Engagement Session! I have a list of locations that are close by with wonderful views! We can pick something just right for you!
A few of my personal faves are:
-Chautauqua Park in Boulder, Co.
-Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins, Co.
-Gross Reservoir, Boulder County, Co.
-Clear Creek, Golden, Co.
-RhiNo Arts District, Denver, Co.
-Cheery Creek State Park
-Roxborough State Park
Each engagement session is done within 1 hour or less driving time from my location! If you choose a farther out location there is a small fee. Please contact me with any questions about your location!
Sunset is BEST! The light is golden and yummy! You can see examples of this wonderful light in my portfolio! We will start your engagement session about 1.5 hours before the sunsets that day.
I do engagement sessions during the week since most of my weekends are filled with weddings and elopements. Doing your engagement session during the weekday will ensure fewer people at popular locations! Etiquette states you should have your session done about 1-2 months after you've gotten engaged but honestly you can do them whenever you want :)
Some locations in Colorado require a a paid photography permit to have your photos taken their professionally and some locations are free but you still need a permit. I will let you know if your location requires one. Permit fees are usually minimal but some are more expensive, let me know if you have a price range you are looking to stick to. All permit fees are added to your invoice.
After your engagement session I go through and edit all the best images from your session, then upload them to a private online gallery for you to view, order and download! These images are great to use for your save the dates, to display at your wedding and to put on your wedding website if you have one! Don't forget to tag me if you post them on social media!
