    This is SO good and such helpful content!! I know I searched through different blogs like this when we were about to do our engagement shoot, and having this resource is SO comforting and reassuring to people like me who are a little nervous to be in front of the camera. YOU ROCK GIRL!

      Thank you SO MUCH!! That seriously means the world!! I plan on writing a lot more educational blogs for both couples in front of the camera and photographers behind the camera, so keep your eyes peeled!! <3

    First, you guys are dreamy! Those photos are amazing. Second, this is great advice! I love that you remind us to be true to ourselves and plan a shoot that feels true to you. The advice about clothes, hair, and makeup is great too. Those are always questions that I wonder about when preparing to be photographed and this post helps a lot with all of those concerns! You’re the best! <3

    Ah, I remember when we were getting ready for our engagement shoot and time asking you all the questions! I’m so glad you gave us all the pointers and you made us feel so comfortable being goofy! One more tip – if your partner is a bit shy… bring some shot. 🤣

    Lulu’s is the best for those dresses!!! So important to set aside time like you said, I also feel like it makes it a special memory to travel to somewhere together! I remember for our engagement photos doing it kinda last minute on a Saturday and I wish we had planned more and spent the energy and effort to really set aside time! Great post!

    • Andrea Chvatal says:

      Yes they are! And I love that y’all have that perspective – it makes looking back on the photos even more special <3

    “Epic. Flowy. Dresses.” Has to be my favorite part! But it’s true, a big fluffy/flowy dress makes the entire experience so much more whimsical and fun. Great points!
