HELLO!

A NOTE ABOUT THIS GUIDE

I know how excited you must be to see your images printed! The first step is to start thinking about how you would like to showcase your photos in your home and what gifts you'd like to give to loved ones. Printing your photos isn't trendy, if anything, it is the true timeless aspect of photography.

One of the first things you need to know, is that I truly believe that photographs are meant to be tangible - they are a legacy that are too important to be kept in a drawer in a USB and forgotten.  They are made to be displayed in your home.  Seeing your photos in print format has no comparison. 

So here is a guide which I hope will be helpful for you to start thinking about photo products.  

This guide will cover the details of all the specialty products included in the A-la-Carte Menu.  At your ordering session, you will be able to select a Collection that speaks to your family's needs and then either build upon it by adding A-la-Carte specialty print products.  You also have the option of choosing only A-la-Carte products (minimum purchase order).

All the products I offer in The Premier Collections and the Specialty Products in the A-la-Carte menu are printed using the finest photographic fine art paper and by some of the most high-end & renowned professional printing companies.  Your images will always look stunning, unique and will last a lifetime and beyond.

Fine Art Quality

Who doesn't remember going their grandparents' home and sitting down with grandma while you turned every page of every album while she described each photo?  The Luxe Album invites you to sit on your couch, relax and turn every page reliving the memories of this special day; of that special someone, captured in beautiful photographs.

The Luxe Album allows you to print all your favorite photos (starting with 20-30+) and have them all in one safe place.  There's no need to settle for just a few prints or a selection of digital images that you may never get around to printing.

The 10x10" Luxe Album is a unique hand made piece or art and custom designed to fit your unique story.

The Luxe Album

Statement jewelry is a great way to add color or pattern to a simple dress. Lace and tulle look amazing in photographs.

And dresses with lace sleeves are a great way to help slim arms. Depending on your location, you might want to consider a fit and flare or a flowy dress!

They look great in walking and photos with movement. Choose an outfit you feel comfortable in, but don’t be afraid to dress up!

Engagement sessions are the perfect time for a hair and makeup trial! Professionally done hair & makeup last longer than typical hair & makeup. They also tend to hold up better for humitiy and wind.

We think it’s so important that you look and feel your best for your engagement photos - and if you’re planning to do a hair & makeup trial anyways, the engagement session is a great time to test how your hair & makeup look on camera.

There will probably be times during your session when we’re shooting your hands holding or the engagement ring on your hand - which means it’s a good idea to clean up your nails before your session (this applies to the guys too!).

You can’t go wrong with a suit and tie. Consider pulling out that suit you had to wear last time you were a groomsmen! Layer with a blazer and a fun tie - you can even wear jeans with this look. Bowties are always a good idea.

Be careful not to choose a pattern that is too small - it may accidentally make your photo look a little too busy. Softer, pastel colors tend to photograph better than bright colors - especially since bright colors could reflect on your skin. Cozy sweaters layered over button ups are a great way to stay warm and stylish during the cooler months.

Luxe USB drive

for safekeeping your digital images

I have carefully hand edited each of your images to my unique artistic style and have created a beautiful collection of photos from your session.  Although I am a firm believer in printing your images and creating beautiful photographs to hold in your hand and adorn your home, I also understand that you may want your collection of images in digital format.

For years I have trusted my professional photo labs to print the best possible rendition of these artistic images on fine art papers, finishes and always retaining the tonalities and clarity I have intended. I am not able to guarantee preservation of print quality for images that are not printed through my professional services.


Individual digital images are available for purchase A-La-Carte after the minimum product order has been met.

This will be the first time you will see your beautiful collection of images! The ordering session is the in-person viewing and ordering appointment in the comfort of your home. About three weeks after your session, I will go to your home and you will watch a beautiful slide show of your image collection. You'll see all the best images from your shoot. I will show you all of the products that I offer so you can touch, feel, and handle them all you want! I want you to know exactly what you are purchasing and fall in love with the products before ordering!

I can help you decide what photos will go best with your decor, what size would work best in your space, and decide which products are the best fit for your family. My clients love that I can help them decide what goes where and which photos pair well with each other in a grouping.

Immediately after your ordering session and after your payment has been processed, your order will be on its way to be printed!

Spring

fresh flowers and sunny days 

Even though Spring begins in March, we typically don’t begin shooting for another 6 weeks because the weather in Maryland is still pretty chilly. When we schedule spring dates, we typically schedule both a primary date and a backup rain date.

Summer

walks on the beach hand in hand

In spite of the heat, we’re big fans of summer sessions! Because of the later sunset, sessions sometimes begin as late as 6pm. If you’re taking your engagement photos during the summer, we recommend bringing extra makeup and a few towels to make sure you stay fresh throughout your session.

Fall

colorful leaves and snuggling close

Fall is one of the prettiest times of the year on the East Coast and because of the perfect weather, our schedules typically book up quickly! If you have your heart set on a fall engagement session, we recommend scheduling it as soon as you book!
