So what is an engagement session? Some know but aren't really sure if they want or need to have one. They aren't sure where to do the session, what to wear, how to pose and the stress seems to overtake them before we even have a chance to discuss. An engagement session is basically a "warm up session" before your big day. We go somewhere fun, outdoors and have a very casual, fun session. Its a great way for us to get to know each other, for me to see how you respond to the camera and to make you more comfortable so that the day of your wedding I'm not longer "the photographer", I'm “Crissy”! :-) I recommend dressing in solid colors if at all possible. You can dress as casual or formal as you want. The session usually takes about an hour. For lighting purposes, I try to schedule them early in the morning or in the evening just before sunset. I really enjoy the engagement sessions. We aren't dealing with a strict time line, we can get creative and just have fun!
