What to Expect in Engagement Sessions | Dennis & Mayra Engagement Session | Sacramento, North California Wedding Photographer

Congratulations on your engagement! Being engaged is one of the best feelings in the entire world (besides getting married, of course!). A lot of emotions come when it's time to step in front of the camera and capture your engagement photos.

But, don't worry. We got you.

At Ashley Teasley Photography, we specialize in making our clients feel comfortable and capturing their love in our photographs.

We know that you probably aren't in front of a camera every day. We also know that your wedding day is SO important to you, and guess what? It's just as important to us.

We strive to ensure your wedding day goes smoothly. During engagement sessions, it's time for us to earn your trust. Engagement sessions aren't just a celebration, they're a session where we get to know each other so we can build a dream team for your wedding day.

Don't worry about posing. Don't be nervous.

We will guide you every step of the way.

From posing during engagement sessions, to posing during bridal portraits and capturing every second of your ceremony, that's what you hired us to do, and we intend to do it well.

So how should you prepare for an engagement session?

-Wear something that compliments each other. In other words, try and match color schemes. For men, pants help elongate your body, in just the same way women's heels do. Check out Dennis and Mayra's gorgeous outfits below.

-Relax. You don't have to know how to pose. That's my job. I'll guide you every step of the way. I like to lead you into each pose, then ask questions or joke around to get the genuine expressions. While your images will be perfect, they won't look forced!

-Have fun!  You and your soulmate should focus on showing your love and just being yourselves in front of the camera, that's when the magic happens. Capturing your laughs, your smile, the way you glow at each other- that's what makes the best photographs.

I'm not just your photographer, I'm your friend. I will help you every step of the way to ensure your engagement shoot and your wedding go smoothly.
