Engagements & Couples
Everyone's love story is unique — I want to help tell that story through a fun and intimate photo session.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
All couple and engagement sessions begin at $250 — this includes between one and two hours of shooting, 50+ fully edited images, and complete download access to all photos. Prints are not included, but can be purchased separately. If your shooting location does not reside in the following counties, an added fee of $50 will be added for every hour over the first hour: Lebanon, Lancaster, Berks, Schuylkill, or Dauphin.
What should we wear?
Don't overthink this — yes, you want to look nice, but more importantly you want to look like yourselves! I suggest that there be no more than two outfit changes during a couples or engagement session. A lot of couples like doing a "casual" outfit (jeans and a button-down for the gentleman, a simple summer dress for the lady) as well as a more "formal" look (khakis or dress pants with a cuffed shirt for the gentleman, a flowing dress for the lady), but this is entirely up to you.
For spring and summer, keep things light and simple. Patterns are okay, but nice muted tones always look best and won't clash with anything else around you. Keep the lime green and bright orange at home.
During autumn and winter, prepare to bundle up without looking too bulky. Ladies, it's time to break out the leggings and boots with dresses and cardigans, and gentleman, usually jeans and a nice flannel work well.
And hey, if you're unsure of an outfit, send me a picture and I'll be happy to offer some suggestions!
Do you have any package bundles for engagements and weddings?
Yes! If you book your engagement session and wedding with me, you can save $100. As long as you pay the full $250 the day of your engagement photoshoot, you will only owe $900 instead of $1000 for the wedding day session (prices vary if there are travel fees).
My designer needs full resolution photos for our save the dates...
Not a problem. Send me the name and contact info before they get in touch with me and I will send over whatever they need. You also get full download rights to all of the images, so the resolution may be high enough already, so double check!
Alternatively, if you do not have a designer in mind, I will also create Save the Dates / Wedding Invitations for you for an added fee! You can see samples of my work in the "other" section of my website.
CAN I ORDER PRINTS? CAN I USE THESE ON FACEBOOK?
Yes and yes.
To make things simple, you can order prints a la carte via the link I send you with all of your photos. This works best when friends and family want to purchase photos. If you have an larger order in mind, message me first and I can come up with a better package deal for you. If you're on a budget, you can download the photos and print them at your own leisure — I highly suggest using a site like Mpix — do yourself a favor and don't use your local Walmart or drug store.
As far as uploading the photos to Facebook, of course that's not a problem! I only ask that if you upload them anywhere that you tag my Facebook page in the album description/comments/caption where you can. Also, please do not color correct or add Instagram filters to my photos — I spent hours making them perfect for you so you wouldn't have to do that!
ARE THERE MORE SAMPLES OF YOUR WORK?
