Walk Through Engagement Session Workshop – #2!

Woohoo! I am so excited for this announcement! Last June I hosted a walk through engagement workshop and it was SO MUCH FUN! I had 12 amazing attendees and although the weather wasn’t totally on our side for a sunset engagement shoot, the rain held off so we got to head outside for the shoot, and do an intimate indoor shoot as well! I had such a good time, I swore I would have another one super soon! Well super soon apparently means almost a year later! But it’s here!

The most commonly asked questions I get from other photographers are about my ring photos and how I approach engagement sessions….how I get my couples to be so adventurous, how I find my locations etc! Engagement sessions are one of my most favourite things to photograph. They’re so different from weddings. We get the opportunity to go to locations we never would have been able to on a wedding day and we have the freedom to be more adventurous.

So I have put together a “Walk Through Engagement Session” Workshop just for you!! It will be at my house in Abbotsford, with wine :) It will start with an overview of how I approach engagement sessions: how I market for them, more specifically how I market for my ideal couples, how we decide on locations/find locations, how we prepare for the session, how I approach the actual session in terms of lighting, language etc. and my methods of posing and direction!

From there we will head to a local location to go over RING SHOTS! haha this is a HUGE topic! I love love love rings shots! I will go over how I shoot them, settings, placement etc, and will have rings for everyone to practice with! Then we will have a mini (hopefully) sunset engagement session with a real live couple ;) so we can practice posing and lighting together!

Then it will end off back at my house for some snacks, and I will go over my import/editing process and answer as many questions as I can!
