Where to shoot…

  • You can choose a location that means something meaningful to the two of you
  • Or if life is too busy and you’d rather not have the stress of finding a location, I can choose a beautiful location with lots of options. All I need to know from you is if you would prefer a nature or urban backdrop.
  • We can go to as many locations as you’d like but I suggest keeping them within walking distance so we can get as many awesome photos of you as possible without cutting into our one hour session.

What to wear…

  • Neutral colors are fabulous. Any bright color may reflect on your face and most of the time we don’t want that (we don’t want green or purple faces!!)
  • Fabrics that flow can be your best friend! A flowing dress can give so much movement to a picture while also highlighting the best parts about your body!
  • Layers are always great because your outfit can look completely different with a quick change of a jacket or scarf without having to spend time changing.

What to bring…

  • Blankets
  • Drinks (champagne, anyone?!) or snacks
  • Puppies are always welcome
  • All of the above or nothing! This is a no-stress allowed shoot so if you can’t find the perfect blanket than no problem, you’ll still have a blast and receive fabulous images!

What will the session look like…

  • Simple and easy! We won’t do any strict poses and I encourage you guys to enjoy your time together! Try to forget I’m there and just enjoy this hour together as a date.
  • We’ll hop around to different locations either within walking distance or drive (whatever we’ve discussed prior) to those places.
  • Lots of kissing, lots of hand holding, lots of me getting really excited about the shots I’m getting that I know you’re going to love.
  • You guys can change as much as you’d like though I would say keep it to 2-3 outfits in order to get enough images for you.

What does it look like after the session…

  • I will upload your images, edit them, and upload them to your online gallery.
  • You will receive an email from PASS gallery by 3 weeks after your shoot (check your spam folder as sometimes it gets throw in there) when your images are all uploaded to the gallery.
  • You have the rights to print your images where ever you’d like but you can also print them directly from the gallery which will go to a professional printer and be sent directly to you.
