A: An engagement session is a portrait session of you and your future spouse. Some clients opt for an engagement session to fulfill a specific purpose. Sometimes it's for Save the Date cards, to be displayed at your wedding reception, or to be incorporated into your wedding website. Sometimes it's just a wonderful opportunity to have professional photographs taken of you two together during this time in your lives. The engagement period is a very sweet time in your relationship, and it's lovely to commemorate that with pictures of you both together.
A: Once you decided on a engagement package, we can then choose a photo session location and time. On the day of the session we will meet at our pre-determined location and get started! We will explore the location for the session. I like a natural feel to my portraits. I am opened to your ideas for posses and I can help you pose if you prefer. For example, I might have you take a walk along the beach, or I might tell you to talk to each other, laugh, or smile. My goal is to capture your real moments, your emotions and interactions with each other.
A: If you are not familiure with Oahu, I can help by with a few recommendations. I also have a Oahu photo session location page, full of photo samples from each location. If you have a location in mind, I'd love to hear about it!
A: Photo Sessions can be scheduled any day or time of the week. What may be available will depend on my schedule and what is already booked. I believe weekdays are best for Engagement Sessions, especially for a beach location. Beaches can be more crowded on weekends. Sessions times will differ depending on the time of year.
A: The most important thing is that you're comfortable, that you feel natural, and that you're wearing something that's representative of who you are. If you're a jeans-and-t-shirt person that is ok too. If you are driving to the location, I don't recommend wearing your clothing while you drive. Arrive early enough to give yourself time to change and feel fresh. Coordination is okay, but I don't encourage matching. The outfit does not need to match that of your future spouse. if we are doing a beach photo session, bring a second outfit in case we get wet. Consider your location when you're deciding on your engagement session outfits.
A: I recommend bringing , drinking water, a towel, sunglasses, items for hair in was it is windy, touch up makeup for shine, your ring, props and a change of clothing.
A: If you have pets or kids, please feel free to include them in your session. However, I strongly suggest limiting their involvement. If you're going to bring pets or kids, you're also going to need to bring someone else to handle them. The best thing is to include them in the beginning of the session, for a brief time, and then having a trusted friend or family member take them home. If you don't, we'll spend valuable session time wrangling them. You won't be able to relax and be together if you've got kids running around that you need to keep an eye on, and it's difficult to cuddle up when you're trying to hold your dog's leash in your free hand!
A: Absolutely! Believe it or not, I know exactly how you feel and many of my clients feel this way too. I aim for a relaxed, happy feel that shows closeness and interaction, and we'll keep it natural and fun, but it won't be awkward or forced. I'll help direct you enough so you know what to do, but not so much that you won't recognize yourself in the images. And most often I'll be letting things flow naturally without any interruption, so you won't even have to worry about striking a pose.
A: If it rains on the day of our session we would wait, relocate or reschedule the session.
