Now that you have picked a date and a venue as well, you can celebrate! Those are some of the toughest decisions in wedding planning and you can cross them off your list! Hooray!! Now on to the fun stuff…. like your engagement session!
We include complimentary engagement sessions in The ECP Wedding Experience because we truly believe that they are a VITAL part of the entire process. During your engagement session, you’ll have the chance to get to know us, experience how we shoot and how we handle posing and lighting. This session will make a HUGE impact on how the wedding day flows. I’ll arrive on your wedding day already knowing how you two interact, what your best poses are, and how to photograph you in a genuine way!
What I will learn about you during your engagement session is invaluable! You’ll feel like such a pro on your big day because of the great practice you had during your engagement session, and that’s how it should be!
Your engagement session can be scheduled anytime before your wedding day. We normally suggest booking it at least 3-6 months in advance to avoid stress. Because we are natural light photographers, we love to photograph engagements during the evenings, normally from 5-7pm, but this is depending on the light and the time of the year. In the winter months, 3-5 pm is a normal time frame for an engagement session!
As you start to plan for your engagement shoot, you will need to start brainstorming about location ideas. I LOVE it when couples pick a location that is special or sentimental to them in some way! If you can’t think of anywhere specific that you would like to shoot, we can totally help you decide on a location! As long as the light is great, we can make ANY location look awesome! We shoot at farms, coffee shops, wineries, college campuses, parks, downtown areas… but some of our favorites are those super unique locations! I’m serious! Do not shy away from crazy ideas! The more creative, the better! And to make things even easier for our ECP Brides and Grooms… we love to include an Engagement Session Style Guide to help you look your absolute best. After all, this is forever! 🙂

Boudoir photography celebrates all the ways your crazy beautiful body has held you up, moved you forward, and turned you into a woman who can get. it. done. Sis, that is something that should make you proud.
I’m Emma, a Sioux Falls Boudoir Photographer. Helping people feel their best has always been part of who I am. Before focusing on photography, I worked as a nurse, and now I use that same expert care to help women feel like a million bucks. Oh my gosh, it is the best.
