Whichever style you choose, I will work closely with you to ensure that your session authentically represents your love story and captures the moments that are most meaningful to you.
Finding your life partner is no easy feat, but when you do, it's an extraordinary journey that makes the search worthwhile. Saying "I Love You" and committing your heart to another person is a significant milestone in life, one that deserves to be captured and celebrated. I personally understand the value of preserving these moments, as my own surprise engagement was beautifully documented by a photographer, and the images continue to hold immense sentimental value to me.
Life moves swiftly, and couples portrait photography serves as a way to pause, immerse ourselves in the present, and immortalize the love that exists between you and your partner. Whether you're planning to get engaged, commemorating an anniversary, or have been together for a lifetime, investing in a couples portrait session is a gift to yourselves—a tangible reminder of the love and connection you share.
Many couples express concerns about feeling awkward or unsure about being photographed. Rest assured, I have an array of techniques and tricks to help you feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. All I ask is that you come to the session with an open mind, ready to play, and together, we will create magic—capturing authentic moments and creating stunning images that reflect the essence of your unique love story.
No two love stories are alike, and the same goes for your session with me. I offer three distinct styles of sessions: Sunset, Studio, and Lifestyle.
Lifestyle sessions are perfect for couples who desire a documentary-style experience in the comfort of their own home. These sessions capture the everyday, intimate moments shared between you and your partner. From snuggling on the couch to sipping coffee and engaging in heartfelt conversations in the kitchen, we'll preserve these authentic moments that reflect the essence of your unique love story. By shooting in the most personal space you have—your home—we create images that truly capture the depth and intimacy of your relationship.
Sunset sessions are designed for couples who want to play and celebrate the beauty of the environment they are in. Whether it's your hometown or a special vacation spot, we'll utilize the picturesque surroundings to create stunning images that reflect your love and the unique atmosphere of the location.
Studio sessions, on the other hand, are tailored for couples who appreciate a minimalist and artistic approach. These sessions focus solely on you and your partner, capturing the essence of your connection in a more simplified and refined manner. With a clean and uncluttered backdrop, we'll create visually striking images that emphasize your love and the beauty of your bond.
If you are planning on booking me for a surprise engagement, I would say as book me as soon as you start your planning process. Timing of sessions are as follows: Lifestyle session's are usually booked in the morning, depending on lighting in your home. Studio sessions can be scheduled at any time and sunset sessions are scheduled one hour before sunset.
You can expect your images back within 1-2 weeks after your session. I carefully choose the best images and edit with lots of love to make sure there is consistency throughout your entire gallery.
I recommend to stick with neutral, earthy tones as they never go out of style. They also go best with my editing and photography style. Once you book, you will receive a client portal with tons of information on what to wear, as well as guidance from me, with one on one calls. I also want to take as much stress as I can off of you, so I have a growing client closet of items for you to choose from for your session.
I do and want to travel more outside of the state! There is a travel fee involved, but if you need me to travel to you, I am more than happy to do so.
A nonrefundable session fee of $300 is required to hold your session date and time as well as a signed contract. The remainder of the collection fee is due the day of the session.
Reach out and I will walk you through all of your options. Can't wait to meet you!
Deja captured our family in such a fabulous way, we now have such special photos we will treasure for a lifetime.
We are so thankful to have Deja photographing our growing family. She is kind and thoughtful and makes the process so easy and comfortable.
Deja went above and beyond to make us feel special during such a stressful time. We are so thankful we found her and look forward to having her capture future milestones for our little family.
Deja took the most AMAZING photographs of my 2 year old niece! She not only got her to smile beautifully and naturally at the camera, but Deja also captured fantastic (and heartwarming) candid shots when even mom didn't know the camera was on. She is so gifted and wonderful to work with!
