Engagement Sessions

An engagement session is a dress rehearsal for your wedding day

There are incredible benefits to having an engagement session. You are able to get comfortable in front of the camera and it’s wonderful practice so it feels like second nature on your big day. It also allows you to give Andrew feedback on what images you love so he knows exactly what you prefer on your wedding day. Last, but certainly not least, it’s time where you get to know Andrew and he gets to know you and your love story! 

If you haven’t scheduled your engagement session yet, please review the options below and contact us as soon as possible since Andrews schedule fills quickly. Andrew sets aside session times on Wednesdays from 3-8pm and Thursdays from 12:30-7:30pm. Please inquire if you need to schedule a session outside of those times. Session times do fill quickly especially in the summer and fall, so we recommend scheduling at least 6 weeks before your wedding.

Andrews tips

8 Ways to make your engagement session fabulous

Relax and don't over-think it. Be yourself, have fun, and plan to dress like you’re going out for dinner with friends

Take it easy the night before. Take a night off from planning, order in, write your vows, or just be intentionally sweet to each other. Coming straight from work can make it hard to connect and unwind during your session, so positive vibes from the night before, sweet texts, or notes around the house can really set the right mood.

Consider bringing props. Think of something quirky you both like, what you enjoy in your free time together, what teams you support, or things that simply make you laugh out loud. You can’t go wrong with laughter!

Hire a professional. Consider going to a salon to have your hair styled or a barber shop for a fresh shave. Your session is also a great opportunity to try out your bridal makeup either by a professional or yourself. That way you can see your full look in photos and make any makeup adjustments before your wedding day. 

What about pets? Your pet is welcome to make a cameo but make sure to bring an friend to hold the leash or carrier so we can go off and focus on just the two of you as well.

Make it a date. Extend the fun and turn the session day into a memorable date night or lunch out. I’m a huge foodie and love giving recommendations.

Share your favorite 20 with us! How do YOU see your love story? Make a favorites folder in your online engagement gallery or post a collection to Facebook or Instagram. We love seeing your favorites and learn a lot about how you like to see yourself so we can prepare for the big day! Be sure to tag us @VickPhotographyMN (Facebook) @AndrewVickPhotography (Instagram)

Stylish guestbook? Leave the stress and pressure of finding a unique guestbook behind and let us design one for you! Starting at $450, our guest books are custom designed for each individual couple to fit your wedding day and guest book needs.
