Los Angeles Engagement Sessions

Los Angeles engagement sessions are fun and relaxing with Christopher Todd Studios. There are so many reasons not to pass up on your engagement session. We know being engaged is an exciting time. So get your professional photography session on the schedule and check it off the to-do list.

When is the last time you had your photos taken by a professional photographer?

Maybe it was the wedding you were in last year, or at your parents 50th wedding anniversary party.

Quite possible you haven’t had professional pictures taken since your high school senior picture.

Now you are engaged. And in a few short months, you will be in front of the camera. All eyes on you. No pressure. LOL

We are celebrating your love story and it begins with your engagement.

Los Angeles engagement sessions will be the first time you and your fiance will be in front of the camera together. It is a great way to practice and get to know your photographer. Kinda like how you have a wedding rehearsal.

Let’s connect and not just on Facebook or Instagram

The connection that you will gain with your wedding vendor will be organic and the results will be beautiful wedding photos.

Engagement sessions allow the photographer to get to know all your quirks in an organic setting and this allows us to take photos that you will love and shows who you really are.

Los Angeles engagement sessions build confidence in  couples

Get professional guidance during Los Angeles engagement sessions. Most likely you are not a model nor is your fiance. It may take 15-20 minutes just to feel comfortable in front of the camera. It is totally normal and we expect this.  I will be directing the two of you and be helping you pose. But imagine if you don’t do your engagement session with your wedding photographer the day of the wedding you might only have 25 minutes together and 20 of those precious minutes are you two just getting comfortable.

But imagine if you don’t do your engagement session with your wedding photographer beforehand. On the day of the wedding, you might only have 25 minutes together and 20 of those precious minutes are you two just getting comfortable.

After you see your engagement pictures you will see how amazing you look at your photos and know that your wedding day pics will be even better and you will look awesome.

Our job as a professional photographer is to put couples at ease

We all know weddings can be stressful. From choosing the right color flowers to renting tuxedos. Not to mention certain family members.

When you have worked with your wedding photographer before the wedding day you will eliminate the stress of being in front of the camera which will directly lead to you looking amazing in your wedding photos.

As your photographer, I really get to know what works for the two of you as individuals and as a couple.

It is most beneficial to photograph the couple before the wedding this allows us to get a feeling how you interact and connect.

Maybe it takes my special techniques to make you laugh, smile and look natural and at ease. But I would much rather figure that all out at the engagement session where we have time than on your wedding day when moments are quick and I have to be ready for anything.

Benefits of working with your photographer before your wedding

Seeing professional pictures of the two of you before your wedding can be a huge advantage for the success of your wedding images.

You can communicate to your photographer certain angles you like or dislike and they can adjust the photography accordingly. Why wait until the wedding day when it will be too late.

You get to know your photographer really well. You will learn their style of shooting and see them in action. This will create a beautiful bond between the three of you. On your wedding day, you will feel so comfortable knowing you are in good hands.

As your photographer, I will be taking mental notes throughout the session. I will apply this knowledge to your wedding day when taking amazing photos of the two of you.

Engagement Tips

  • Book your hair and makeup trial run for your engagement session. This will allow you to see how it will look in professional photos before the wedding.

  • Choosing a location that is meaningful to you is important, maybe it is where you go engaged or where your first date was.

What can I do with the pictures:
