The Most Important Tip:
Prepare to come emotionally vulnerable. I know that sounds scary but it is so important for truly remarkable pictures. We will laugh and joke around a lot, but the deep, intimate pictures will be the best. It's important you let me in. Act like you do when you're alone together. True for couples, families, or individuals.

Second Most Important Tip:
Don't stress it. This is especially important for families. It might not be perfect, but it will be real and powerful - no matter what happens. 

Ideas:
Get a Pinterest. Share whatever board your posting your ideas on with me. Keep me in the loop with what you want.  

What to wear:
Anything that you feel comfortable in. Stuff like this looks great: (Couples) (Families). With the exception of Formals/Wedding shoots, most people bring two outfits; one formal, one casual (engagements, family, graduation).

 

Hair & Makeup:
Included in all the wedding packages, and available as one of 3 options for the portrait package. Done by this gem of a human. If you have a lipstick in mind, make sure it's long lasting, and kiss proof. 

Props:
For families: yes, especially if it can be used as a bribe for kiddos. For Graduations/Missions: Cap & gown/anything specific to your mission you'd like. Engagements: I've never had anybody need them, but if you want to, sure.

Formals:
Bring your veil, flowers, both of your rings. If you can; bring your paper suite (your invites, save-the-dates, envelopes, seating place cards). If groom is using watch, tie pin, cuff links, or any special details - please bring those as well.

Flowers:
If the question is if you can tell if they're not real: unfortunately, yes. However, real flowers can be expensive. I've had clients get very creative. Do whatever works for you. Don't sweat it. 

Lighting:
If you pick in outdoor place keep in mind we'll be shooting around sunset for best lighting. If you pick indoors we will be shooting around noon. Flash used for receptions only, unless requested otherwise.
