What is a mini engagement shoot?

A mini engagement shoot is a nice way to get a taste of our process, and for the two of you to relax and feel comfortable in front of the camera. It is a good warm-up before scheduling a full engagement session, or for those looking for just a few pictures for their save the dates or wedding website. By being paired with one of our talented photographers, you will have an opportunity to be captured together as a couple, and be directed in fun and creative ways.

If you are considering a mini shoot, a full engagement session is also encouraged, so you can experience our full process, and establish that personal connection with the shooter who will be photographing your wedding. Mini shoots are optional, and are offered as our schedule permits. Even though a mini shoot is much shorter (limited to 30 minutes) than a full engagement session (typically 1-2 hours), we make sure to work efficiently within the time available.

The ultimate goal is to capture five standout photos that are unique from each other, with a few backgrounds and poses. We call these our highlights, and we give these photos an extensive post-production (enhancement / retouch) treatment to ensure a nice finished product. Within 14 business days after the shoot, you will receive a download containing these highlights, provided in printable JPG format.

In addition, we will put all of the images on a shopping cart link, where you will see on average 50 photos taken. You will receive a courtesy credit to cover post-production of five of your own favorite photos, so they can receive the same treatment as the highlights. You will also find a variety of print options, downloads, and keepsake books, which can be purchased if desired.
