Things to know

Locations:

We prefer doing our Engagement Shoots in Red Bank, Asbury Park & Allaire State Park.

They have great spots to work with that contrast the theme of your wedding and generally are in range of everyone.
If you have something else in mind please ask. Other locations & out of state sessions are subject to travel fees. 

On Dogs and Pets: 

 We love em! However, we recommending bringing someone along to help wrangle your pup

as you continue on with  your shoot. We'll have our hands full with the camera.

Weather Issues: 

In the case of inclement weather, we generally reschedule our sessions.

If for some reason you can not reschedule and see inclement weather on the horizon, please call and we'll discuss it, especially if you're traveling from a distance where the weather may be different. 

 

Parking/Timing

We recommend arriving 15-20 minutes early to ensure you find parking

and to give yourself a minute to primp from the drive.

Some people like to change into a different outfit when they arrive if there is a location to do so. 

Confirmation

We generally call/send an email the day of or before your session.

However things do happen, if you haven't heard from us, something may have happened, feel free to reach out to us. 

Save the Dates (with your Engagement Pictures)

Generally, save the dates should be sent out 6-8 months before the wedding.

That being said, you'll want to set up your engagement session a few weeks before that to let us process your pictures

and to allow yourself time to choose a picture and to get them printed. 

Engagement Guest Book

A great way to show your guests your engagement shoot and have a nice keepsake from your wedding is a Engagement Guestbook! It leaves space for your guests to sign and write you messages while artfully displaying your photos. Then, after the honeymoon, you put it on your coffee table next to your wedding album

The latest you want to order an album is 2 months before the wedding. We are constantly building wedding albums and we want to allow time for your album to be produced and shipped back with us with time before your wedding. 

  We want it in your hands at least two weeks before the wedding. If you need it for anything else (an engagement party/bridal shower), please let us know in advance of your event, otherwise we can't guarantee you will get it in time.
