So you’ve booked your engagement photo session…and now you’re freaking out a little about all the things. I get it, this might be your first photo shoot and it’s totally normal to feel a bit uncomfortable in front of the camera at first. HAKUNA MATATA, you’re in good hands because you got one of the best Brooklyn, New York photographers to prepare you for your engagement photos.
Read about THE PHOTOGRAPHER & WRITER OF THIS BLOG, Miranda, here.
Two important things:
1. Schedule your photo session to take place during golden hour for the best light. Golden hour takes place on a sunny day within 1 hour prior to sunset. If it ends up being overcast, that’s perfectly fine too, but the photos will not have rays of golden light but make it easier for the photographer to find locations for photos because harsh light won’t effect the outcome of photos. Either way, book your session around sunset for the best photos:)
2. Leading up to your engagement shoot day, you are highly encouraged to screenshot and save your favorite Pinterest and Instagram photos. Then, either by Instagram direct message, email, or a Pinterest board link, share those images with your photographer, so he/she can get an idea of what you’re looking for. It’s important to be on the same page so expectations can be met – but also note that the photographer cannot copy-cat another creative’s work but totally normal to be inspired by 🙂
And don’t forget to send your engagement photographer selfies!
This is typically a perfect opportunity to try out your hair and makeup artist before your wedding day. Find a local one using searching Instagram / Pinterest hashtags like:
#BrooklynHairstylist #Brooklynmua #Brooklynweddinghairstylist #Brooklynweddingmakeupartist #Brooklynmakeupartist
I also recommend stylists from my NYC / NJ preferred vendors list. Many of these vendors also offer exclusive discounts to my clients just by mentioning my name! 🙂
3. At the end of shoot (if requested) I make it magical – working on long exposure photos or fantasy moments with sparklers and fairy lights to make your shots one-of-a-kind pieces that you want to frame around your home as wall art.
You can follow a lot of my personal and work life on Instagram Stories to see if we’ll be a good match. I find that if you love at least one of the following: Disney, the sea, gifs, candid photos, animals, then we should click instantly.
My rate starts at $379 for 90 minutes in NYC, and can go up to $649 for more time and an adventure session outside of NYC! Contact Contact to find out more info and start the booking process 🙂
