What’s that? Free engagement portrait session? Yep! I offer a free engagement session and disc of images with each and every one of my wedding photography packages. Literally, I do. There’s no hidden charge for it in my package. Why, you ask? For reasons other than just “being nice” and “it’s a cool thing to offer,” it’s really the only opportunity I have to get to know you as a couple before your wedding day. The engagement session is one of the most important pieces of your wedding package, in my opinion. It’s a time where we get to kick back and take pictures without the stress of the wedding day schedule. I get to learn all about how you met, how he proposed :), and every other fun, fabulous thing I can find out about the two of you. It’s actually the time when I start to get a little bit emotionally attached to you. Yes, I get attached to my couples. I can’t help it! I love LOVE and people in love and I just can’t help falling in love with my couples that are in love. Did that make sense?
Our engagement photo session is also a time where you get to know ME. That’s important. Without this connection, you may not be as comfortable on your wedding day. You’ll already have seen my style and how I work and interact with you, and that’s just one less thing to worry about when your wedding day arrives. And believe me, I understand about having too much to think about when it comes to your wedding day!
Another fun thing about engagement sessions is they are, just that, FUN! And so stress free. I like our sessions to showcase you as a couple. Let’s take photos at the place he proposed. Or your favorite coffee shop. Or favorite park. Or, if you don’t have any of those, I’ll come up with a fantastic place based on how you want your photos to look. We can go anywhere in the Sacramento and San Francisco Bay Areas. Want Lake Tahoe? We’ll go to Lake Tahoe. Also, bring different fashions for an entirely different feel per location. It’s all up to you.
So, I guess that’s it. I just wanted to share with you that my engagement sessions are 1) FREE and 2) all about getting to know YOU.
And because every post needs a picture, this one is from my day with Amber and Chris, in gorgeous Folsom.
