Welcome to this special guide tailored to our couples embarking on evening engagement or couple's sessions with us.
Join us as we delve into the intricacies of each unique session, offering insights into what to anticipate, wardrobe suggestions, and ways to make the most of your enchanting night experience.
Let's roam at night together.
what to expect
Imagine this scenario: You and your partner stepping into the world of a night adventure, almost like a specially curated date night experience.
When you show up for the session, just bring yourselves – no need to stress about anything. It's all about being in the moment and enjoying each other's company.
And sure, we'll get some great photos too.
Dress Code: Outdoor Glam
Ultimately we want you to feel your best.
Dress as if you were invited to a night time wedding as a guest. You want to look dressed up but still have your style in mind.
We won't be hiking or going far from our parking areas so heels and nice shoes are totally welcome on these sessions.
Long dresses with fabric that moves in the wind = amazing.
Sneaky Sof + Crew required?
Planning on a surprise for the shoot?
Make sure our team is in on the secret, we can assist and make sure it's truly epic.
Grooming makeup hair
We recommend ladies get their hair + makeup done professionally.
And for the men consider a fresh haircut or shave before the shoot.
We have incredible hair and makeup teams we can connect you with in all different areas we do these sessions in.
If you insist on doing your own makeup please avoid SPF products (they turn your face white with our lighting at night). Makeup for night photography should be a bit heavier than your normal everyday wear.
what should we bring
Imagine you are going on a night time guided date night.
What would you bring along normally for that?
Maybe a snack? Or a fav blanket to cozy up in while we do some light test shots?
We don't encourage a lot of "props" to be brought on these shoots, especially anything with words like signs. They just don't read well at night.
The Furry Ones
can we bring our pet
Just know bringing your pet on the shoot changes the dynamic a bit.
If you choose to bring a pet on the shoot be sure to have everything they need to stay comfy in your vehicle during times they are not in the photos.
Some of our couples choose to pop some champagne or even smoke on their shoots.
We welcome both of these as long as you have a driver. Please ensure one of you is the driver for the shoot if the other would like to have a couple drinks to kick the nerves.
The New Moon Nights
fingers crossed for stars
New Moon Nights are when the moonlight is at it's lowest intensity and when we can generally photograph the stars.
We go forward with our shoots no matter what the weather.
These sessions are generally in dark sky areas in order to give us the best chances to photography starry skies.
The Blue Hour Nights
twilight fans anyone?
Blue Hour Sessions are right after the sun sets, when the sky is that rich twilight blue.
This is the most flattering and romantic lighting of the day (in our humble opinion) and these sessions are perfect for moody images.
No matter what the weather these look incredible.
The Full Moon Nights
the forests are glowing
Full Moon Nights are quite magical. It's extraordinary to see how bright the moon light can be. We especially love seeing what shadows the moonlight makes.
These sessions are generally not in the mountains as we want to be as close to the horizon as possible for when the moon rises.
*There is a lot of wildlife out these nights, be extra careful when driving.
we are weather fearless
This image right here was taken when the wind was incredibly strong, the couple could barely stand still without being swept away.
110km winds at their back.
And look how beautiful they look.
Wild weather = AMAZING Photos.
We never reschedule.
