Engagement Session Photography, serving Los Angeles and Orange County, Barnet Style!
We love engagement sessions mainly because it gives us a chance to get to know our couples better before the big day. It's our goal for you to enjoy the experience and love your photos after the see the images. This will make you look forward to the photography on your the wedding day.
Engagement sessions are fun for our couples, we go to nice locations, they get lots of great photos for "save-the-date" cards, sign-in books, etc. But Engagement Sessions have so much more to offer!
We photograph engagement sessions for most of our wedding clients, It is a great for us to get to know you and have fun photographing you without the time constrains of the wedding day. We learn your best angles, the best way to light you, and some times we even do a little coaching on posing for the big day.
After the session, we often meet at our studio to order products from the engagement session, or it can be done online. Either way, you'll see photos we made of you before the wedding. It's also a great way to see how we photograph you and the way we are able to capture your chemistry.
When it comes to your wedding day photography, you will be instantly more relaxed because we were able to spend time together on your engagement session.
We can suggest several locations for engagement sessions we like with in our area such as beaches, un-manicured parks, wilderness areas, urban areas in downtown Los Angeles or Santa Ana, and the Santa Monica Pier to name a few. We're also happy to go to a location that has special meaning for you.
We always offer makeup and wardrobe suggestions if asked, and even give our opinion on photos of possible outfits our clients text us images of. Some couples bring a change of clothing for an extended session, and maybe even a friend to help them change and carry things. Even dogs are welcome as long as they come with a friend to be "the handler".
All this doesn't mean that an engagement session needs to be a big production, some couples do little planning, besides deciding on a location and what to wear, and keep it very simple and casual.

We always have a phone consultation with you to discuss your session and the type of location you would like to have. You may want to go to the beach, a park, or an urban location. We also go over wardrobe and makeup to make sure you feel good during the session and look your best. A little pre planning will make your images timeless
