Adventure Engagement Photography
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.
Engagement Photography Sessions
the engagement session
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.
the adventure session
Hiking, skiing, climbing, bring the dogs, whatever you’d like to do! Includes an extended session in a location anywhere within Washington. You choose the details; I'm along to capture the moments!
Honestly what is the point of an engagement session?
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.
We don't have wedding plans yet, but we want an engagement session. Do you do that?
Of course! Stand-alone engagement sessions are $750 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.
What is included in an engagement session?
All Seattle engagement photo 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!
Can you suggest locations for us?
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!
What if it rains on our scheduled day?
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!
What should we wear to our session?
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!
When can we book our session?
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!
