Engagement Photography- getting ready for your Session { Winston Salem, NC, Kernersville, Wedding Photographer }

My very favorite type of photo- shoot: the engagement shoot, is a fun time for a couple to express their love. While the wedding is mostly documentary, (I’ll be taking real photos of things as they happen) the e- shoot is stylish portraiture. Here are a few tips & tricks to work it like a pro in front of the camera.



Have your e- shoot somewhere special, where you met, maybe a place you like to go together, or where you shared your first kiss. These places not only add emotional layers into your photos, but they make more unique photographs. Some of the most gorgeous photos are taken at “ugly” or rustic locations. Couples all over the community are using the same parks for their photo shoots- be different!

My most frequently asked question is, “What do I wear?” A dress and heels is always very sexy, but make sure you choose what suits your own style best;  if that’s jeans and flip flops, go for it!

Some couples even wear wedding colors or choose a theme for their inspiration




Props make it interesting!
If I brought the Props, you would have the same images as all of my other couples….boring!  But when YOU bring props to a session, they are uniquely you! In the image below, Annie’s grandmother made this quilt especially for her session!!! And that Adorable Dog is theirs…..I think. Winston Salem Wedding Photographer_0411
Fun things to bring: A blanket
special memories
Your engagement ring
a fun scarf, or jacket
Love letters….ect.
