Not only are engagement sessions great for wall portraits, your guestbook, save the date cards, and invitations, but it gives us the chance to get to know each other, hang out, and work together before your wedding. The more comfortable with me you are, the more relaxed and natural the photos will be on your wedding day!
Most importantly, this is your time together. Your time away from the madness of wedding planning. Your time to bond and be excited together about whats to come next!
Deciding on a location for you session can be tough, but I’m here to make it as easy as possible! Below are some of my favorite ideas for engagement session locations. If you need help choosing, I’ll be happy to let you know which ones are my favorites, and why, and together we’ll decide on the best location for you!
Where you first met • Where you had your first date • At the place he proposed • Doing your favorite activity together • A session including your pet • Your favorite skyline (in the day or evening!) • A downtown urban session • A romantic beach session at sunset • At your favorite coffee shop or restaurant • At an amusement park, carnival, or fair • Seasonal sessions showcasing fall, winter, spring, or summer themes
I’m based in Riverside, CA but I love to travel and will happily come to you wherever you may be! My travel fee is surprisingly affordable (and I have a passport!) so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!
I regularly photograph engagement sessions all over Southern California including San Diego, Temecula, Palm Springs, Inland Empire, Orange County, Los Angeles, and Malibu.
Having a destination wedding? Couples who live out of the area can do their engagement sessions on location a day or two before the wedding, or used as a day after session!
Engagement sessions start at $500 and includes a one hour on location session, 30 miles of travel, digital files on usb, and and full personal usage rights. I also offer a range of extras including albums, canvas wraps, and more. You can view more of my pricing info here.
