Engagement FAQ's
What outfits work well for engagements?
I recommend neutral earth tone colors as these colors work best with the sunset light as well as skin tones. Please avoid pure white if at all possible. Pure white can sometimes appear light grey or so white that no details are visible. A slightly of white fabric is a perfect compromise!

We are so not used to the camera. How do we get great photos?
Seriously the most common comment I get! Everyone feels awkward or uncomfortable in front of the camera. It is normal. I feel it. Any person who isn't a model or a blogger feels uncomfortable. But I ask you this, are you comfortable being in the presence of your lover? Do they make you feel comfortable? Do you not spend enormous amounts of time together, feeling totally relaxed? If you answered yes then that's how you'll get amazing photos. Forget me. Really, I want you to ignore me most of the time lol. Forget my camera! Also, I'm super sweet and so that helps ;)
Is an engagement session necessary? Is it a good idea?
No it's not necessary. Yes it's a great idea! It's a great way to get to know me, your wedding photographer before the big day. It's a great way to have beautiful photos for your invitations or save the dates. Lastly, it's FUN.
Since you are based on Maui, do you also travel to Oahu and Kauai for engagement sessions?
Yes I do! There will be a travel fee of $250 added to your engagement session package to cover the cost of coach airfare roundtrip.
