“Pop the question” in style! Everyone these days wants to announce their proposals, and honestly who wouldn’t? For many of us, it’s a day you dream about all your life!
Often times, family & friends can’t be there to witness that “surprising” moment. So, share that moment with them over social media or a more personal announcement; with these monumental & timeless photos. Capture your proposal in a way you & your loved one will never forget!
I highly recommend taking the day OFF. Relax with each other, grab some lunch- or an early dinner before our session! Maybe have a glass of wine (or two), whatever helps the two of you loosen up. Taking photos can be nerve wracking (TRUST ME, I know!). So TRUST ME again when I say, take the entire day off to enjoy yourselves. Some true quality time together will strengthen the bond the two of you sure. Natural; fun & free flowing organic shots are what I strive to capture. We won’t break from every frame to capture that “picture perfect” pose. I embrace all of the elements from our location site; be wind, overcast skies or picking some wild flowers to have her hold (or wear). Lets embrace the full integrity of the session by creating genuine moments. My sessions are an experience. So lets create one.
I also highly recommend bringing a blanket to the session to use as a prop to sit or lay on or use to wrap around the two of you. I suggest wearing outfits that fit your personalities and mesh well with the rustic theme and tone I like to showcase. Other props such as hats, scarves, pumpkins for fall, or even picnic items are always welcome. I also LOVE shooting picnic themed sessions- you’re encouraged to bring some champaign, mini cakes or anything else the two of you may enjoy.
In this package; My pricing includes first & foremost; me. Now I don’t mean to “brag”, I’m DEFINITELY not the “baggy” type- but I am confident in my craft. Im ever evolving and growing in the photography world by taking work-shop classes & online webinars. I always say, “If you aren’t learning – then you’re at a stand still & I never want to be at a stand still”. Photography isn’t just a “hobby”, or something I “do on the side”. This is my full-time lifestyle. Aside from myself being the eye behind the lens; I also include my travel time both to & from the site location, as well as my time shooting the session and time spent editing your final reel (edits). Photography isn’t as simple as “pushing a button on a nice camera”- though I do use one of the best professional grade manual cameras & gear on the market today- theres a lot more involved behind the scenes. I also run a business; which requires me to host an online website & website upkeep (which costs money). So my gear upkeep, web upkeep, marketing upkeep, social media content creation upkeep & social media ads expenses- are also all included in my pricing. I know, I know- this sounds like a LOT. Trust me, I agree haha. But in todays world it’s a requirement. So I wanted to be candid with all of you, so y’all know exactly where I come up with my pricing! I appreciate each & every one of you for understanding and more importantly supporting myself & all the others in town who are like me. When you book with any of us (small independent businesses) vs. going to Macy’s or Walmart for photos- you’re helping me support my family, keeping me educated in my constantly evolving craft & keeping my dreams alive & kickin’!
