You’re going to have an engagement photoshoot and you’re wondering …
What does that mean? What do I do?
First thing you should be thinking about is – what to wear? This is your chance to get dressed up, plan your outfits and get some great photos of yourselves as a couple. This is a time you’ll want to remember forever, and your photos will help. You might even schedule your test hair and makeup for the same day. Here is a brief overview of what you and your fiance can expect from your engagement photoshoot.
Here is how your engagement photoshoot will work:
- First we’ll talk about your personal style and pick a good location for your shoot. Like I say, either Uptown, Downtown, at the Beach or in the Great Outdoors.
- We’ll go out and shoot for an hour or so at the location you’ve chosen.
- Then we’ll make selections based on our “favorites,” and I’ll edit and process those pics and get them ready for you.
- Next the set of “favorites” go online so you can see them and share them with your friends and family.
- When you pick the ones you love, I’ll send them to you either email or dropbox them to you.
The engagement photoshoot is really a chance to for you guys to get out and have fun. A lot of us aren’t very comfortable in front of the camera – in fact most of us dread the idea being “on display” at a photoshoot. Believe me, I understand! In fact this is why I think your engagement photoshoot is so important. This gives you a chance to experience what it’s like before your wedding day. Then when your wedding comes around you’ll have already done this before and you’ll know what to expect.
We find THIS REALLY HELPS our couples.
Most couples end up using one (or more) of the photos in the planning of their wedding. They’ve been included in save-the-date cards, invitations, printed and framed for the reception, put into engagement photo albums and guest books, even sent out as holiday cards and of course – used for online profile pics and sent around on Facebook.
What do I do next? Call, email or text me and we’ll make it real easy.

Here is a look at a couple recent engagement photoshoots to give you an idea of what you can expect.
Jillian and Jeff started their wedding day waking up to pouring rain in Costa Mesa, California. They had originally planned their ceremony outdoors on the beautiful lawn at Park Privé, formerly the Orange County Food and Wine Center. The rain did move their ceremony inside and everything still went off without a hitch. We started getting ready at Christopher Perry and the Marriott in Costa Mesa. Here are just some of the photos from their wedding day.

Mobile phones are coming of age, and they appear to be here to stay. You should embrace mobile communication and mobile marketing now. In fact, we seem to be more connected to our phones than we are to anything else. How many times have you seen people sitting together in a restaurant, and all are on their phones? More consumed with the phone then they are with their real life … happening in front of them.
Ron Jones, ClickZ, points out in his story on this topic, according to research by Morgan Stanley, 91 percent of mobile phone users had their phone close to them 24 hours a day. Not to mention that their phones are always on. Other studies indicate that there are four times as many mobile phone users as Internet users. THIS is where I think, many will begin to swap their home internet service for their phone’s internet service - just like we’ve all done already with our home telephone land lines.
For those of us who focus on communication, building relationships and having constant contact with friends, family, partners and customers – using mobile phones to connect with our communities (marketing) is growing in importance.Details
