Engagement Session Locations

March 03, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

It certainly feels a lot like Spring! As the warm weather rolls in we often see higher requests for engagement sessions.  One of the most frequently asked questions we get is "Where should we go?" Well, it depends. Engagement pictures should be fun, and tell a story about the couple.  You could schedule your shoot where you first met or your favorite place:

Maybe you both have a shared love of hiking and adventure,

or perhaps you want to capture your engagement the moment it happens!



When narrowing down possible locations there are some considerations in order to make the most of your shoot.  Time of day is probably the most important. We like to shoot either early in the morning or later in the evening.  The sun is far too strong during the middle portion of the day to take pictures comfortably, especially around Reno and areas without shade.  Pedestrian traffic can be a nuisance at popular beaches and parks, especially if there are special events happening at the same time as your shoot.

Weather is only a consideration if you don't like to be in it.  Otherwise stormy skies, rain and snow can make amazing pictures, just make sure your outfit matches the weather.  If you want a snowy picture than sleeveless shirts and shorts may stand out in a negative way.

Clothing choices are up to you, but it is best to stay away from loud patterns and neon colors. Also out of trend are matching outfits.  If you are in doubt we can help you choose.

Engagement sessions are a lot of fun and a great way to get to know your photographers.  If you tend to be camera shy than we highly encourage an engagement session so that you'll be less nervous on your wedding day. We offer beautiful engagement books that are perfect for sign-in guest books at your wedding, or as a compliment to your wedding album. Engagement session images also make wonderful printed or digital Save-the-Dates and photo invitations.
