Flowers can be both special and unique to the individual relationship, but add an amazing touch not only for photos of you and your partner but of photos of that gorgeous ring on your finger! Bring along your favorite bouquet combination to add just the perfect touch of color and pop to your photos.
We will pose you with the flowers in whatever way feels natural, and as you can see by some of our photos, all of those natural positions are different depending on the couple. We will also use the flowers to pose your gorgeous ring, as the natural colors from the floral arrangements really make the stone of your ring pop in photos. Tips and Tricks
FOOD AND DRINKS
Food and drinks can take the occasion up a notch! Don’t be afraid to bring along the bubbly and a couple of glasses to enjoy while taking your photos. The act of popping open the champagne and drinking from the glasses with one another not only makes for great photos, but allows for a little liquid courage to loosen you up for the most comfortable and YOU shoot possible!
As for food, bring along your favorite donut flavor or your favorite meat and cheese for an awesome and intimate moment between the two of you. Having any kind of “meal” together always leads to some romantic photo ops!
A BIT OF HOME
Bringing something from your home will add a flair of your own unique style as well as giving you the comfort of being in your own space. Bringing along a gorgeous flair of your own personal style can add a bit of comfort for the two of you; a sense of feelings at home in your own space can help you open up more.
As well as comfort, bringing your own style to the session allows us to style you in a way that matches up with your personal sense of style allowing for photos that will not only come out stunning, but will look amazing hanging in the same room with the rest of your decor. Tips and Tricks
