Engagement Shoot

Engagement shoots are a great way to over come those on-camera jitters and away for our team to learn more about your personalities and the best way to capture them. You'll have one less thing to stress about, and you'll have photos for invitations, save-the-dates, wedding day canvases, and social media! We've got you covered.

These shoot times range between 1.5-4 hours. During this time, you want to maximize on your outfits! We would recommend to hire a professional make-up artist and stylist before the shoot. If you would like to run any of these elements by us, feel free.

Engagement Shoot -Location

If you know Allsnap, you know that we can make any location look great. We suggest an outdoor location, that has different nice areas, so we can max out! It should match the vibes of your looks or have significance to your love story. It can be some place extravagant or somewhere intimate like your home.

Engagement Shoot - Looks

This is one of the most critical parts of your shoot. You need to make sure the colors, patterns and textures compliment the location. Color coordinating is key. We also would suggest to have at least a casual and formal look, so we can get both sides of your personality! Be mindful, the number of looks may have an impact on the amount of time we are shooting together.

Engagement Shoot -Timing

The time of day is very important when taking the photos. It's important to avoid harsh sunlight and extreme temperatures. The best time to shoot is either sunrise or sunset. You would aim for 1-2 hours before those set times. These are great slots because you get great lighting and avoid those pesky crowds.

Yes, the looks and location are important, but nothing beats the moments. You may be worried about how you look, but leave that to us. Just focus on each other! Photos are the best when you are relaxed and genuinely enjoying yourselves. The shoot should be filled with love and positivity; that is key.

Shoot Concepts

Sometimes people want to elevate their shoot by attaching a concept to their engagement photos. We suggest that the concept is connected to you as couple, so you feel confident in the space, the looks, and the idea.

For example, if you are a couple that loves movies, the concept can be remaking the cover or stills from your favorite romcom. Or you can tie in fun elements and hobbies of your relationship with props such as a bating cage for a baseball-loving couple or paint for an artistic duo.

Posing Coach

Everyone always says the thing that makes them the most nervous about their shoot is the posing. This is why we offer a posing coach to assist you during the shoot.

Our posing coaches are here to make you feel comfortable and confident. They have studied posing from popular photoshoots and wedding resources to equip you with the best guidance for you and your partner!

During our preliminary meeting, we will discuss the type of couple you are (more playful, more serious, or a blend) and the coach will match the poses to your vibes! You'll be feeling like a magazine model in no time.

The Wedding Day

The day is finally here! We understand that this is both an exciting and stressful time. There are so many hands to shake, tasks to complete, and moments to make, and you have a certain timeline to do it all!

It is our job to equip you with all the information you need to make the photo portion of your special day seamless and capture all the moments to last a lifetime...just like your love.


Making your timeline can be intimidating, but it's so important-so we are here to help. Here is a sample timeline of the photo schedule for your wedding day.

Your wedding may look different, but this is a standard look at the day. We can decide together how long you want us for each section to make sure to capture everything you want. Your timeline will also be contingent on weather and season, in order to take into consideration day light.












The Details

The first thing we do when we arrive is getting the detail shots. We suggest that you designate someone such as a maid of honor/bestman, a parent or your wedding planner to set aside these items for efficiency. This should done before we arrive.

These details include the shoes, accessories, any stationary or written notes, perfume/cologne, the veil/tie, jewelry/ watch, and most importantly, the RINGS!

We do suggest that you have a nice hanger for your dress (one that says bride or your name) and a cleared/aesthetic area for us to get a great shot. Most brides invest in a sewing mannequin to prop their gowns. This makes for beautiful bridal moments and photos.


Bridal: Following the detail shots, we will be getting solos of the bride once make-up is done. That includes beauty shots and pre-dress shots. During this we will also get group shots of the bridal party in their robes or matching looks

Groom: We don't leave out the groom! We make sure to get those GQ quality solos and groomsmen shots. Be mindful that if you only have one photographer, this portion of the prep may not happen or will be shortened.

The First Look

The first look is when a couple sees each other for the first time on their wedding day. This intimate moment makes for an emotional photo opportunity. The benefits of this are to share this private moment alone and to get ahead start on the bride & groom portraits.

There are variations to the first look that include the first touch or prayer where couples don't see one another, but hold hands or pray, feeling the excitement & joy of those final moments together before the ceremony

The Ceremony

During our meeting, we will discuss your unique ceremony such as traditional moments. These include the pouring of the sand, lighting the candle, religious/spiritual rituals or jumping the broom. These moments are important to know so that we are alert and in position to capture them.

Cocktail Hour

This time is typically for the guests to unwind, and the bride, groom and wedding party to be whisked away to get those significant couple and wedding party photos. If you have opted for one photographer, documenting this will be forfeited for the day. However, on 2 photographer packages, the 2nd photographer will cover this portion.

During this section, we can also arrange a room reveal, where you can see the reception area for the first time! It makes for a nice moment with the decor vendors and also serve as a great location for the portraits.

Couple Portraits

This is one of the most important sessions of the day, the Couple Portraits. This happens during the cocktail hour. By this time we will scout the area for a veiled location to avoid wedding guests. We will be capturing that post ceremony glow with the bride and groom, as well as the wedding party.

This is a must because these are the photos couples traditionally want printed for their albums or personal canvasses, soi t's integral we take advantage of this time.

The Reception

Time to kick off your shoes! Although it's the party portion of your wedding, we will still be working to get all the fun and important shots. From the table details, first dances, and cake cutting, to your guests getting down on the dance floor, we will snap it all! Don't fret about anything here, it's your time to let loose. If you are having trouble scheduling your reception, we are here to help you with the ideal timeline!

Wedding Send-Off

The first dance has been done and the cake's been cut—now it's time for the grand finale. It's easy to make your wedding exit just as exciting as your entrance with a little help from your guests. You can customize these exits to your personalities or theme, and they make for great photos.

Wedding Tips

  • Make sure to book your Engagement shoot 9-12 months ahead of your wedding so you have your invitations and wedding prints in a timely manner.
  • You should get two prep rooms for large wedding parties (6+people) and a space is cleared and aesthetic for prep portraits for the bridal and grooms party.
  • Get a wedding planner or a Day of Coordinator.
  • Make note in schedule to have photographer(s) arrive 3 hours, minimum, before the ceremony. Allot an hour per person for the Make-Up Artist. We recommend that you hire an additional MUA for every four bridesmaids.
