Planning an engagement session can sometimes be nerve wracking for any couple. Both trying to make sure they get good pictures, while looking cute and natural and wearing coordinating outfits, and all the things. Don’t stress!

Engagement sessions are supposed to be fun and relaxed. You get to spend time with your man and get all dolled up and just explore and have fun. When I book an engagement session with my couples, I like to send out a questionnaire to get to know you both better. You can grab some chips and guac and make this a fun little date together.

Once I get your questionnaire back I’m able to tailor the engagement session specifically to you and your man. We’ll play music, go to beautiful locations and get some fun pics along the way!

Fun Engagement Session Tips

  • Pick out your outfits together – this helps involve your fiance in the process and make it more of a fun event!
  • Make it a date night – go out to dinner before, or grab a treat afterwards. Reward yourselves for getting a start on all things wedding!
  • Play music – music is a great way to have a fun engagement session and get some super fun pictures. Make a playlist for your photographer to play with all your favorite tunes.
  • Make the session unique to your relationship – if you like to explore, let’s find a forest, if you like shopping downtown, let’s go explore downtown Omaha. Whatever you guys enjoy I’m down!

Don’t Stress

Most importantly, don’t stress. Let the photographer (aka me) do their job, they’ve been trained to do this and have tons of experience! An engagement session should be a time of celebration and excitement, save the stress for wedding planning(;

Remember the reason you’re going through all of this is because you and your fiancé want to spend the rest of your lives together. Not because you want a perfect wedding, or pretty pictures. You just want to be together. Focus on that! 🙂
