2. How early do I need to schedule my engagement session?

We suggest that you schedule your engagement photos a year in advance this way you can choose what month a day you want. A lot of the times when you schedule late you may have to work with time and months with your photographer because we get booked up very fast. When booking your engagement session early you also have time to think about what you want to wear and even possibly book a hair and makeup appointment.

3. What should I wear to my engagement photography session?

First and most importantly make sure that you feel comfortable and love what you are wearing! When feeling good in your outfit it will always show in your photos. Make sure you and your partner’s outfit complement each other. Nothing is worse than outfits that clash in your engagement photos. We will likely have suggestions or guides to help you pick the best outfits for your engagement photography session.

4. Where and when should I take my engagement photos?

When deciding when and where you are wanting your engagement photo session, I would start with what month you want. Deciding what month, you want determines what kind of background you want. Are you looking for a summer vibe or fall vibe? What fits your wedding? This will determine when questions you have in mind. When it comes to places your photographer will take you to multiple locations around the Dubuque area. We have countless locations that are unique and absolutely beautiful.
