Our Philosophy

Engagement sessions are the bee’s knees. It’s a perfect time to capture this special moment in your lives. These sessions give us the opportunity to get to know one another and for you to see how we work. When you are your most comfortable in front of our cameras your personalities radiate through every image. We encourage our couples to think creatively, get nerdy, and embrace who you are together.

The Jitters, and helping you feel comfortable

A lot of our couples are worried about looking and feeling uncomfortable in front of the camera. Our approach is this: These photos are for you two, not us, so we will be asking you questions and providing you with direction to interact with one another. We'll be clicking away but it's more about creating an atmosphere for you two to share some sweet thoughts and laughable moments.


What if it rains?

Don't let a little rain deter your plans. Though, if a downpour is imminent, having a backup indoor location is ideal. Consider finding a greenhouse, record shop, or cozy café to pop the question. Avoiding big-name companies often provides more unique aesthetics, and try choosing a location that will not be too dark and prevent us from seeing their reaction.

What if I want to propose on a hike or other activity?

Consider us in. Your proposal story should reflect who you are as a couple. If that involves us sweating a little in order to capture the moment, we're good with it.

Any tips to get my partner to dress up a little?

Plan a dinner or show for after your proposal. It's the perfect cover to ensure your partner is dressed to impress when you bend the knee. #gameofthrones

Do you recommend DC's monuments?

The monuments can be tricky. There are literally bus-loads of tourists, most often in the afternoon and evening, that risk stepping between you and our cameras. If one of the monuments is special to your relationship, the mornings are your best bet to reduce complications. Tell your partner you're going to a brunch, Smithsonian, or early movie date afterward to help keep your plan a secret.
