look like a ghost!). You’ll want to avoid powder makeups like Bare Escentuals, and opt for companies with creamier foundations like MAC. Your makeup artist will also want to apply your makeup heavier than you normally wear so it will show up in your photos.

Grooming Both men and women should pay particular attention to facial hair. Women should take a close look at their eyebrows and upper lips a few days before the session. Even if your facial hair will be masked by makeup, it can still appear in photos. For men, unless you are going for the scruffy supermodel look, I recommend you carefully shave a few hours before the session. This is a good practice because evidence of facial hair can often appear right away. Trimming your beard, goatee, mustache, and/or sideburns is also strongly recommended.

The Ring We want your engagement ring in top condition because it will be the focus of some of the photos. Even if you have only had it a few months, dust and scratches can show up and dull the surface and ‘sparkliness’ of your ring. If you have a service plan with your jeweler, have them work their magic on it for you. If not, toothpaste and an old toothbrush work wonders on jewelry. We want you and your engagement ring sparkling for your photos.

The Night Before Try to get a good night’s sleep before your session and avoid alcohol. You’ll be amazed how easily bags under your eyes can detract from your photos.

Preparing for your engagement session

Hi! It’s nice to meet you.

Clothing You’ll want to wear two different outfits to give your session some variety. You can even maximize your two different outfits by bringing a jacket or sweater to change up one of the outfits a bit. Contrary to recommendations of other photographers, I encourage you to select wardrobe items that may feature strong patterns, bright colors, or busy prints. We want your personality to shine and if that includes banana yellow heels and a bright green belt, then so be it! However, I do caution you to make certain the colors you chose complement your skin tone as well as the colors your fiance is wearing. The key is to coordinate your outfits without matching (we’re betting you’ll regret matching in just a few years). Also, logos are a time stamp on your engagement photos and will most likely detract from the value of your photos in a few years, so you probably want to avoid logos if possible. And, if you have darker skin tones (or an awesome tan!), you will want to avoid wearing very pale colors or all white around your face (that includes shirts, cardigans, scarves, and jackets). Bright, colorful hues (or medium muted hues) work best on darker skin tones. Oh, and don’t forget to bring all of your accessories like shoes, socks, belts, necklaces, and earrings.

Props In addition to your standard accessories, you may wish to bring along a few personalized props like a unique piece of jewelry or clothing or even furniture or crazy hats and umbrellas . Try to choose items that help identify you as a couple, but won’t detract from your appearance. Some couples even bring along their pets (if you bring your pet, please let us know ahead of time so we can plan some shots around the 3 of you, and don’t forget puppy will most likely be needing a drink!).

Treat yourself! This is a special time in your life and your engagement session photos will be photos you cherish for a long time. Which means….it is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a manicure, pedicure, facial, fresh hairstyle, and a date with your favorite makeup artist! Be sure to schedule any waxing or facials a few days before your session to give your skin time to relax. Also, let your makeup artist know that you will be having your engagement session that day so that she will use the correct type of makeup (the wrong type will make you

We know what it is like to be in love. And while we’re not all that old {yet}, we do know true love gets better with time. We are loving life and are so thankful for the opportunity we have to work with couples as they make one of the biggest decisions of their life. We think marriage is AWESOME and we love to see other couples in love as much as we are! We know you want more than gorgeous photographs; you want to remember how you felt on your wedding day and during those precious fleeting moments. You want to remember that grin on his face when he sees you for the first time, or that tear on dad’s cheek during his last dance with his little girl. What has taken months to plan will be over in the blink of an eye. But don’t worry, we’ll be there by your side watching out for you, catching those important moments. So you can spend your day with the people who mean the most to you, making memories with the ones you love. And so you can begin the exciting new chapter in your life called marriage. That’s why we’re here. We want to help you savor the important moments on one of the most awesome days of your life. And why we can’t wait to meet you to get started with all the memory making!!

That’s us!

Words can not express the type of service and product I received from Nathan and Natosha; my husband and I love their work dearly! They are very friendly, professional, prompt, and they pay great attention to detail. They can identify the beauty in the most simple creations and have a niche in capturing a cherishable masterpieces. Natosha & Nathan are individuals of great character and their love for one another shines through their work. They make you feel comfortable in your sessions and at the end of the day you will gain two additional life-long friends along with great photos for you to remember that special moment in your life!

Nathan and Natosha were terrific! Responded to my calls/emails/questions immediately. My pictures were incredible. Even after they had packed up their cameras to leave.... the reception site was nearly empty.... Natosha unpacked her cameras and got a final picture of me and my husband dancing.... I felt completely at ease and comfortable.

We were lucky enough to use Nathan and Natosha for both our engagement and wedding photos! Not only were we blown away, but our families and friends had never seen us look so gorgeous! I even heard friends say that some of our shots looked like they came straight out of a movie! Yeah, they’re that awesome! :) At our wedding, Nathan and Natosha were easily the most organized of all the wedding party and vendors! Although they stay structured throughout the day, they still are able to go with the flow and get beautiful shots when they popped up. They also offered a nice balance between what they wanted to take photos of and what we wanted to try! I wasn’t scared to ask for specific shots nor was I stressed with spending hours searching for 100’s of shots to ask them to take. They know what shots to take and what will work, but easily let you ask for special photos. Not only are Nathan and Natosha a professional team, they are a wonderful couple! I adore the way they worked together and how they even make their work time special. I can’t think of a better situation to have during your wedding than a married couple that is still obviously in love with each other! I would absolutely recommend Nathan and Natosha for ANY of your photography needs! I already know who to use for baby portraits..when the time comes, that is. :)

Frequently Asked Questions Do I get a disk of images? Yep. Well, sort-of. If your package includes “high resolution digital files,” we’re a bit more updated than the “disk of images” thing. All your wedding photos are uploaded to an online gallery where you will have a password that allows you to download your photos, and even share them with friends and family. We happen to think the cloud is cooler than a disk.

I don’t really think I need an Engagement Session. Why would I want pictures of myself? Photos are just an added bonus from the Engagement Session. The Engagement Session is a time for us to get to know each other. It is intimidating enough to get married in front of a ton of people, much less to get ready for your big day with a huge camera in your face. The Engagement Session takes the awkwardness out of the photography process. You get comfortable with us and our cameras, and realize it’s not just about cheesy smiles. But it’s about hanging out with some cool people and the one you love. We spend time to learn about your relationship as photographers. When we shoot an Engagement Session, we aren’t just taking cool pictures, but we are listening to how you talk to each other and we watch for the way your nose scrunches up or the way he looks at you when you laugh. Those little things are the essence of a relationship. And that is how we do more than create pictures. We capture your relationship. And your wedding day photographs are so much more natural in the end because of it.

How does the booking/payment process work? If you haven’t already, send us a quick message through our Contact page with details of your wedding date. We will check our schedule to make sure we have your wedding date available.Then we’ll want to meet with you! We enjoy to getting to know new brides and thier fiances, so bring him if he is available. We’ll chat about wedding details for a while and then answer any questions you have regarding wedding photography. To secure your date with us, we will need 50% of your estimated package price to retain our services (estimated because you might want to add some options later), and a signed contract before we put you on the calendar. The other 50% is due one month before your wedding.

What happens if something awful happens and we cancel our wedding? We know life happens, and we want to give you all your money back. But, unfortunately, we can’t. We’re really sorry. The retainer you pay to retain our services is non-refundable because we are holding that day just for you, and are not able to schedule any other weddings. But, the good news is that you will not have to pay the balance of your package.

“Yeah, they’re that

awesome! :)”
