3. Engagement Session

The Engagement Session is one of our favourite parts of the wedding experience because it gives you the chance to get comfortable in front of the camera and have some fun! Some of our couples use these images in their Save The Date cards or decor throughout their venue on the big day.

5. Wedding Day Timeline Prep

After your engagement session we will talk about your wedding day timeline. It is important to use the tools in your online portal to make sure we leave the appropriate amount of time for each event within your big day. After shooting countless weddings, we’ve learned how to maximize the days light properly for magical wedding day photos.
