Megapixels Media Session Advice! 2017

Scheduling Your Session With Us!

Engagement / Sweetheart Sessions last up to 1.5 hours but seem to go by very quickly! During that time we get to know each other by discussing more details about the two of you and your wedding day. The best light is always 2 hours after sunrise and before the sunset. However we aren't opposed to shooting anytime of the day. We have been experimenting with night time photography and it would lead to some incredible and unique captures.

Usually our sessions are scheduled for the weekends. We aim to capture you at your best, which means rested and not worn down by the stresses of the work place. If time is limited, we have been known to accommodate our couples during the weekday, we just ask to schedule at least 2 weeks in advance.

Scheduling a date for your session will vary depending on what you will need for your photographs. If you are sharing your photographs online then we recommend that schedule you session no later then 3 months before your wedding. But traditionally, if you are using the images for save the dates, then we recommend that you schedule your session 5 months before you wedding day. That way we will have your photographs edited and delivered to you within 1 - 2 weeks.

Be Creative, Be Together, Be In Love

About Our Sessions

These session are an excellent opportunity to showcase your love while creating some fun photographs which capture moments that tell your story. Remember to be creative, be different, be together, be in the moment and be in love.

Most of the time, our sessions are very informal. We want you to take this time to get away from the hustle and bustle of the day-to-day stressors and slow down to enjoy each others company. Not only will you have beautiful photographs to share with friends and family, but you will also get to know your photographers as well. We give subtle direction to not take away from the natural feelings that you bring out of each other. Simply, we don't disrupt the love, we just help to mold it.

It is literally the best way for us to learn about each others personalities. Taking photographs of couples is like having a backstage pass to their love story and we're lucky enough to document it. We learn a little bit about what makes you smile, what makes you hold each other close and what love actually means to you.

After our session is over and you have received you images, we are always open for suggestions. Trust us when we say that we have thick skin. We love feedback, especially when its coming from our couples. Our number one job is to service you by making you happy. An example may be to, " Use my left side more, I just realized that it's my good side," or "Can we have more pictures of us kissing." If we know some of these expectations before hand then your wedding day will move along a lot smoother.

Potential Locations

We can shoot anywhere; your imaginations are the limit! We are directly influenced by our location. We recommend that you choose a location which is unique to you both.

Make it somewhere personal: where had your first date, where you were proposed to, and/or somewhere that inspires you.

Now get together and brainstorm!

If your style is more modern and minimal you may want to pick a city block with modern store fronts, a building or restaurant with flare, an art museum, or a parking garage with geometric architecture, or an industrial setting, just as a couple of examples.

If you’re both foodies, a colorful outdoor market or a picnic may be an option. Keep in mind that sometimes the best locations for a shoot are in the most unusual places. These are just a few ideas to help you get started on choosing a location. Just try to keep one thing in mind... Fall in love with wherever you are.

P.S Check to see if we need a permit due to being asked to leave if we stay too long. Typically, we can get away with shooting without a permit. Although we become easily noticeable in a wedding dress.

What to Wear and What to Bring to Your Session!

Like the location, what you wear during your shoot should take a little bit of thought. Make sure that you pick out something that you are comfortable, confident and feel amazing in. Avoid baggy clothing and anything that is too revealing which may distract from you as an individual. We recommend a max of 2 outfits per session. Anymore then that may impact the time that we have with each other. But we are completely flexible with what you choose to bring to the table.

The primary colors that you learned about in elementary school play a subtle role in our photography. The Reds, Yellows, and Blues are what add that little bit of pop to the photograph which help you stand out from the background. Its the red lipstick, blue shirt, or even using a yellow backdrop which helps. Avoid baggy button down shirts and be sure to bring a comfortable pair of shoes to change in and out of because we’ll probably do a bit of walking.

Last but not least bring your Confidence and Trust! The confidence in yourself is everything and insecurities will show through to your photographs. Your trust in our ability to make you look your very best. We feed off of your trust, so we need it to do our best.

This guide was written with you in mind, it is no where close to a rule book. All we ask is that you make you session personal and make it fun. Above all else you made it!
