Hi there and welcome to my blog! I am so happy you are here. Think of the blog as VIP access to see more than just what you may see on my Instagram. You'll have the chance to scroll through wedding galleries and engagement sessions. I hope you enjoy!
As if planning for a wedding day isn’t enough, add needing to prepare for your engagement session to the list! But, with my help and expertise I can give you all the advice on how to be best prepared for your upcoming shoot!
The first thing to do is get in touch with your photographer about a day, time and location for your shoot. Most photographers will give you recommendations on places for your shoot. If you’re in the Birmingham area (where I’m located) check out this blog for location recommendations.
You may think you don’t need this, but I promise you won’t regret hiring a professional HAMU artist. Hair and makeup shows up less than you think on camera, so wearing your everyday look sometimes isn’t enough. Go for the fake lashes and always be sure to bring your lipstick with your for touch ups between locations.
My biggest piece of advice when picking out your engagement session outfits is to make sure you choose outfits your comfortable and confident in! Here is a blog post with a few outfit suggestions.
One of the focal points of your shoot is that beautiful ring your fiancé got you! Make sure to get your nails done just before your shoot so they’re fresh! I recommend a neutral color.
The last thing you want to do is put in all of this hard work to prepare for your engagement session and show up late. Not only will this stress you out and have you frazzled at the start of your session, but this also eats into the time you have with your photographer.
