Engagement Sessions

In the blur of wedding planning an engagement session is a wonderful way to celebrate and commemorate this chapter of your love story.

This may be the first time you have professional photos taken as a couple, you can use these photos to announce your engagement, on your save-the-date cards (which are typically mailed 6-8 months before your wedding day), wedding website content, you can create a guest book for your wedding day, show them off on social media, or just keep them for yourself.

This is also a great way for us to get to know each other and get you comfortable in front of a camera before your wedding day.

Everything you need to know about Engagement Sessions

Engagement sessions are scheduled Monday-Friday in the 90 minutes before sunset and last between 60-90 minutes. Due to my wedding schedule, I cannot accommodate weekend engagement sessions.

I like to take my couples for a walk, it allows for multiple backgrounds and encourages natural interactions which allows me to create beautiful and authentic engagement pictures for you.

Engagement Sessions are delivered via an online high-resolution gallery within 10 days of the session.

Investment: $299


Pro-Tips:

1. Make a date night of your engagement session, you're already dressed up take advantage of it!

2. Get your ring cleaned before your session, it is getting photographed too.

3. Don't let yourself be hangry, make sure you eat something before your engagement session.

4. Have fun! This isn't something to check off your list, be present and enjoy each other. Your engagement pictures are just a bonus.

Frequently Asked Questions

We think it's awesome to have the chance to work together before your wedding day and to document this really special time in your love story. We have included an engagement session in our most popular collections for our couples who want engagement pictures.
Indianapolis is full of amazing locations. We can choose a location because you have a particular background in mind or we can choose a place that has special meaning to the two of you as a couple. We're going for a walk so where we start isn't necessarily where we end up. I have a list of favorites I am happy to share with you!
Show off your style and wear whatever you want! Start with something you would wear on a date night. There is enough time durning my engagement sessions that if you would like you can bring a change of clothes. Many couples choose to a casual option and a dressier option. Wear whatever makes you feel beautiful and comfortable! Speaking of comfort, if your shoes aren't comfortable for taking a walk bring a pair to change into between stops.

Pro Tip: Coordinate but don't match, if one of you wears a print have the other wear a complimenting solid.
It is not safe for my camera equipment to be exposed to water, we will have to reschedule unless you have chosen an indoor location.
Yes! Dogs, cats, hamsters, fish, all are fairly easy to incorporate into your images although you may want to bring someone to manage them throughout the session. If you want to bring lions, tigers, or bears... maybe we should go to the Zoo.
No, very few places in Indianapolis require a permit therefore I do not include the fee in my pricing. Should you choose a location that requires a permit you will be responsible for the permit fee.

NewFields is one of the few engagement venues that does require a $50 permit fee.
Your engagement session is a great time to do a trial with your hair and make-up artist to see how it photographs. If you feel beautiful and confident that shows through in your engagement photos.

If hair and make-up isn't your thing do whatever makes you feel comfortable and beautiful.

If you need any recommendations let me know! I'm happy to help!
I will keep your engagement photos on my server for six months following your engagement session. In that time you can print them or back them up in any way you would like.

If your wedding collection also includes a crystal USB your engagement photos will be included.
