Three Tips for the Best Engagement Session Ever

So you have a brand new sparkler on your finger, you just popped the question or have mutually decided it’s time to marry your partner. However it happened, if you’re reading this then chances are…you just got ENGAGED! Congratulations!!! Now let me help you prep for your photos to mark this extra special occasion, aka your engagement session!

Choose the Right Photographer

Your photographer should be more than just a person behind the lens. They should make you feel comfortable, listen to your input, and seek to understand your vision. Beyond their photographic style, look for these qualities to ensure a golden collaboration.

Pick the Perfect Location

The location helps set the tone for the entire shoot. Try and pick a location that does one of these three things. 1) It’s a place that is meaningful to you as a couple. Maybe a favorite date spot, where you ment, or even where you popped the question! 2) It’s a place you’ve always wanted to go (destination engagement shoot, anyone?) or 3) it matches the vibe you want in your photos! If you’re an earthy, laid back, nature loving couple – then hiking a tree-lined trail might be for you. If your style is classic and timeless, then some gorgeous town hall architecture might suit you better. The location significantly influences the overall look and feel of your pictures, and there’s a right spot for every couple.

Dress for Success

Your outfit is more than just clothing—it’s an expression of yourself. Make sure your outfit accomplishes three crucial things: Firstly, it should make you feel *hot* (as in, cute as heck) and confident. Secondly, we want you to feel your best so while we love it when you dress like a smokeshow, make sure you’re actually comfortable both physically, and otherwise! Lastly, dress for the season you’re in! A weather-appropriate outfit keeps you comfy, which means your photographer will be able to capture your true emotions in the moment! 

These three things, choosing the right photographer, selecting the perfect location, and dressing thoughtfully, really help set you and your partner up for success during your engagement session, and make sure the stage is set for a truly magical and authentic experience. The best memories are made when you feel at ease, in a place you’re inspired by and with the person you love!

“Gabriella was absolutely amazing!!! Words cannot even describe how perfect she was, but I’ll try my best. Right from the beginning, I knew she was the one. She was so caring, calming, organized, and just a genuinely happy person. She made me feel even more excited for my wedding. She was so helpful throughout the entire process right down to the big day. AND THE PICTURES - OH MY GOD. They are absolutely breathtaking and she definitely tells the story of your day in the most perfect way. She captures every precious moment while having a smile on her face the whole time she’s with you. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have the BEST photographer for any occasion. We had such an amazing experience with Gabriella and we can’t thank her enough!”

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and we could not have asked for anyone better to capture our proposal! I had intentions of interviewing multiple photographers, but after seeing her work and talking to her over the phone, I immediately booked with her. Her passion for photography is so evident. She goes above and beyond to make your shoot about YOU. She does a great job of taking control and guiding you with poses that you will love, and her candid shots are unbelievable. She had a smile on her face the entire time and we felt like a close friend was there doing this for us. Would recommend her 100 times out of 100!

Gabriella was absolutely amazing. She made the photography session so easy and effortless. Her personality is so warm and inviting, she made us feel so so comfortable during these pictures. Gabriella went above and beyond for us and I’m so grateful my significant other found her as a photographer. I would highly recommend!

Gabriella is not only an amazing photographer, but she is an amazing person! She was incredible to work with and made everything from our engagement photos to our wedding day extremely easy. She really understands your vibe and does everything she can to help make that come true! My husband is extremely camera shy, but he was so comfortable with her and the photos were amazing!

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and needless to say she went above and beyond our expectations! She was hired by my fiancé for our surprise proposal and she did a phenomenal job at capturing every single detail of it. She made our lives easy by understanding us, our personality, the way we wanted to be captured and she did just that! From showing us every beautiful inch of Longwood gardens to telling us about different poses to capturing the beauty and essence of nature! She made my dream come true with these beautiful pictures. We spent 2 hrs with her and there was sign of rush of ending the session and it was more like whatever we felt in the moment which is what I truly enjoyed. She sent us our sneak peak pictures the day off just several hours later and needless to say not only did our jaws dropped but every single person who viewed those pics while asking who the photographer was! We proudly share her information with every member of our family and friends because she truly deserves the best❤️ Thank you Gabriella for capturing the most beautiful and intimate moments of ours and We can’t wait to work with you again!

Gabriella captured our special moments perfectly! She photographed our proposal, Holud night before the wedding, and wedding day. She was very easy to work with and always communicative and responsive. She was able to handle a 300 person wedding with ease and always got the shot. I've only seen the sneak peek from our wedding weekend but I am already in love with the pictures. She truly captured the joy and happiness of the weekend through her photos, which I will treasure forever. She is also just a genuinely kind person, which makes working with her even better :) Highly recommend.
