LOS ANGELES ENGAGEMENT SESSION TIPS

Engagement sessions are a great way to become comfortable in front of the camera, and for your photographer to get to know you. What's that, you say? You don't need to get to know your photographer? Oh, but you do. :) And more importantly, your photographer needs to get to know you, your personalities, your faces and what types of poses will work best for you. So the "getting to know each other" part of the engagement session is a little more important than just saying hi and asking where you're from. :)

People often ask me what they should wear and bring to their engagement session, so I put together a list of Engagement Session Tips that I've sent to my clients for years. But then I thought, "Why not share this information with everybody?" After all, whether you work with me or another photographer, I still want you to get the very best out of your engagement session. With this in mind, I've put together a series of tips that I've found work best for colorful, engaging and exciting engagement shoots.

Remember: You want your engagement shoot to show off the real you, and the love that you have for each other.
