Engagement Sessions

Many couples, who are preparing for their wedding, want to have a photo session.  

This session may be for an engagement announcement or a "Save the Date" card.  It could be that you are going to propose and want a photographer hiding in the bushes to capture moment you drop on your knees to commit your future to that special someone.  It may even be a session to get to know the photographer or to test the photographer to see if they may be the one to handle the wedding day photography for the couple.  Or, it may be a couple visiting Nashville that want to have a session while they are here to help them document a special weekend in Music City, USA!   Whatever the occasion, 

So, I offer my Engagement Photography Session services in three distinct packages.

 

1.  The Proposal          Still Photos                                                       $ 250

                                    Still Photos Plus Video                                     $ 350

If I am hired to shoot your live proposal, I will position myself at the set location prior to your arrival, with the intent on appearing to just be there as a casual member of the background populace, until the time comes for me to spring into action.  Then I shoot photographs of as much of the moment that is humanly possible, without getting in the way.  If video is requested, I will designate where the camera is located and hope that you are not in the wrong place for the hidden video camera to capture the moment. After the proposal and acceptance, I will continue to shoot, but will approach the couple and shoot a series of photos of the newly engaged couple, up to 1 hour of total coverage.  

 

2.  The Out Of Town Couple                                                                 $ 400

For the couple who is either from out of town or for those couples who are getting married in another city, I offer a session that is a bit unique.  This session has about 3 hours of coverage, multiple wardrobe changes and up to 5 different locations around the city of Nashville.  Usually, we start close to where you live or are staying, then make our way to some of the highlight locations that are from natural to industrial. Ending the session with a group of photos that feature the City skyline from the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge or the neon lights along Broadway.  

 

3. The Wedding Client Engagement (Hourly Coverage)                      $ 200 /hr

For the couple who is also going to contract with me to be their wedding photographer, I offer an hourly Engagement session.  This hourly session can be from 1 to 3 full hours in length, have 2 wardrobe changes per hour and up to 3 locations. When a couple has selected me to be their wedding photographer, I use the fee from the Engagement session as the deposit on the wedding package, but it is a non-refundable fee for services.  By doing it this way, the couple is actually getting photography services for the payment of the deposit.

Again, we usually start close to where you live or are staying, then make our way to some of the highlight locations that are from natural to industrial. Ending the session with a group of photos that feature the City skyline from the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge or the neon lights along Broadway.
