I don't just do weddings, I am a Seattle engagement photographer too! I find that most couples are skeptical about the engagement photo session — what is it and why would you need one? Engagement sessions, whether booked as part of a wedding collection or on their own, are an amazing way for you to get to practice being in front of the camera before your big day. They also give us a chance to get to know and work with one another and result in some great photos of the two of you in love.
Let's spend some time at your favorite coffee shop, local haunt, or Sunday Seattle hangout. The Engagement Session is complimentary with a wedding booking.
Hiking, skiing, climbing, bring the dogs, whatever you’d like to do! Includes a full 8-hour day of photography, beginning at $500. You choose the details; I'm along to capture the moments.
Engagement sessions are 50% about getting you some awesome pictures of you and your honey, and 50% about us getting familiar with each other. In the engagement session we chat, laugh, and develop a rapport so that when I appear on your wedding day, I am a familiar face and a trusted ally. The relationship that begins at the engagement session puts you at ease, even in the early moments of the wedding day.
Of course! Stand-alone engagement sessions are $650 and include all of the above. If you love your photos and want to continue with me for your wedding, I subtract the cost of your engagement session from the total of your wedding collection.
All engagement photography sessions include about an hour and a half of photography, and you receive digital files with a full print and social media release. You have the time to bring a few outfits if you want, and make a little outing of it!
I have you covered. I’ve photographed engagement sessions all throughout the greater Seattle area and beyond. Want some inspiration so you can plan it yourself? Sign up below to receive our free engagement session inspiration guide!
The Pacific Northwest has unpredictable weather, so we can all keep and eye on the weather and reschedule the session if rain is imminent. I will say, rain can photograph really beautifully for those that aren’t afraid of an adventure!
Most couples bring 2-3 outfits for variety. Wearing something in-season that fits your style and personality is best. I also recommend bringing along any items that may be personal to the two of you, including your dog!
I photograph engagement sessions from Monday through Thursdays in the evenings. We reserve weekends for weddings and adventure sessions only. The best locations are less crowded on weekdays anyways, which means better photos for you!
