Our top priority is to make you feel comfortable and be yourself in front of our cameras! So just relax and enjoy the process while we guide and pose you through the entire session. We will share all of our secrets to natural, candid smiles and photos with you. And with Luisa’s Germ-English and Douglas’ “Hey Macarena” dance moves, we will have such a blast during your session!

Secret 2: Dreams Do Come True

Have you ever dreamed of epic engagement pictures in the fields, the sand like the white sands national monument or the dessert, the mountains or canyonlands, the almond blossoms or peach blossoms, or in the city of love in front of the Eiffel Tower, at a romantic vineyard in Italy, or with the blue domes in Santorini, or underneath hundreds of hot air balloons in Turkey, or anywhere in the world? This is your once-in-a-lifetime chance to travel the world with your soulmate and have the most epic engagement pictures taken! And we are up for any adventure of your dreams!!!

Secret 3: The Early Bird Catches The Worm

There are two times throughout the day where the sunlight is the DREAMIEST. At sunrise and during sunset! We will schedule your engagement session (and husband & wife portraits on your wedding day) during the glowy, dreamy sunlight!!! So, the question is, are you the early bird or do you prefer “sunset & chill”?

Secret 4: Go Big Or Go Home

It’s your engagement session! So let’s dress it up! We LOVE all long & flowy dresses or tulle skirts and suit & (bow) tie in all soft, natural color palettes (ie. neutral earth-tones, blush, grey, white light blue). Just bring a couple outfits (or more) and we can pick together!!!

Here are our favorite stores:

And for Him the NON-ironing + NON-sweat shirts (yes, you heard us right!!!):

Secret 5: Leave A Little Sparkle Wherever You Go

Don’t forget to add some extra WOW-factors with professional hair & make-up, jewelry and flowers!!! We will always have confetti in our bags, but let’s talk about a bed of rose petals, flower crownsballoon paradise, or romantic picnic set-ups to make your engagement session one for Instagram (or as the saying goes: one for the books)!
