The Engagement Experience
If you choose to add on an engagement session I tend to like to have these scheduled 4-6 months before your wedding date (Please help by putting yourself a reminder to reach out to me 2 months prior than 4-6 months to get on my books at 4-6 months mark before your wedding date. We book up super fast and I would hate for you to miss this opportunity by not having a date on the books.). This allows for editing, delivery, and gives time for you to order save the dates if you choose to. 2 outfits are welcomed. Bringing Champagne and champagne glasses or Biodegradable confetti to celebrate is welcomed.
Once your contract and your non refundable $500 is paid you may reach out to begin planning for your engagement session. This gives us the opportunity to work with each other and get to know one another a little bit more so that on your wedding day you will feel 100% comfortable with me. Don't worry or get stressed about posing. I will walk you through every pose and prompt you to interact with each other to get those breath taking photos.
Subjects that wear glasses, let's talk for a moment. I feel like if you wear glasses on a regular basis then you may not feel or look like yourself without them. So therefore I do recommend still wearing them and not talking them off, but sadly I can't edit out glares, reflections, or can't change the appearance of the blue light, or the dark lens transition feature on the eye glasses. If you think that you may want some glasses photos edited I will need to know this at the session so that I can take some pictures of the said person, with and without glasses to help the person hired to edit the images at the cost of the clients expense. If you have an image that you absolutely love, I can possibly try to send the image off to get corrected at an estimated cost of $20 per image at the cost of the clients expense.
Prices are subject to change without notice. All photo session locations will be within 10 miles of Jennings, Louisiana. Most clients do not mind the travel as it gives them a different look of locations than where they may be from. If you choose to have your photos taken at a different location, the price will change according to the mileage and the travel time.
Each photo session will come with a guaranteed 30 edited images. Images will be delivered to you via email from an online downloadable gallery. I will email you your session and from the comfort of your own home, you can simply open the email, and download the link (choose high resolution) and have your images in front of you. All final images are chosen by your photographer and will include a print release.
If booking an engagement session please keep in mind that Saturdays are often wedding days or will stay open for wedding bookings so I do not schedule engagements on Saturdays (sometimes we have last minute wedding request) and if I don't have a wedding booked then I keep it open for time with my little family.
Engagements are to be scheduled on either Weekdays either morning or the evening is when I like to schedule these sessions or also some Sunday's are available. Sunday's do book up super fast so I do recommend giving me a 3 month notice of when you would like to schedule.
NO spray tans pretty please. I will not be able to edit out the orange skin tones out of all of those images. They may say that their solution doesn't turn your skin orange, but I have seen over and over again different results.
