Planning The Perfect Dayton Engagement Photo Session


How To Prepare For Your Engagement Portrait Shoot


As a Dayton engagement photographer and Cincinnati engagement photographer, I am invested in you, your engagement session and your wedding.  Providing engagement session planning tips ensures I can make your images exceed expectations. These tips are my suggestions to make your session enjoyable and as beautiful as possible.

  • Avoid wearing white or black – colors make your images really stand out.

  • Try to dress in a complimentary but non-matching way.

  • You may change clothes, but most locations don't have anywhere to do so.  This will eat into your one-hour time slot.

  • If you wear heels, bring comfortable shoes for walking between locations.

  • Use extra hairspray on windy days to minimize hair in your face.

  • Have your hair and makeup professionally done.

  • Be on time or early (I am always early) as I often have back-to-back engagement sessions.

  • Props are always ok.

  • Pets are ok except at Cox Arboretum MetroPark; Pets are prohibited in the park.

  • Send me a Pinterest board if you have collected ideas for your engagement session.

Now that you are ready to book your wedding photographer, it is time to begin thinking about your upcoming engagement photography session.  To make engagement session planning easier, I have created the “Comprehensive Engagement Session Planning Guide For Dayton And Cincinnati Ohio.”  Check it out then contact me to book your wedding and free engagement photo session!
