Engagementâ€”Photo session that usually highlights the coupleâ€™s personality. Locations can vary from the photographerâ€™s studio to popular tourist spots in their hometown.Â The dress is generally more casual than other wedding-related photo sessions.
Bridal Portraitsâ€”The dress is the star.Â For brides who want tons of pictures of their PERFECT gown that was chosen after careful and laborious consideration, this is a non-negotiable.
Day Afterâ€”Shot the â€œday afterâ€ the weddingâ€”although some are after the honeymoonâ€”this is a great timesaver if you donâ€™t want to spend the majority of the wedding day taking pictures.Â The bride and the groom are more relaxed, and it shows!
Trash the Dressâ€”one type of day after session.Â Varies from aggressive â€œtrashingâ€ with brides engaging in paintball or mud wrestling, to the more genteel trashing of walking through ocean surf or swimming in a lake.
Boudoirâ€”for the highly confident bride (or the one looking to become highly confident) who wants to give her husband-to-be something private to commemorate the occasion.
Event Photographyâ€”Many couples want the wedding events captured with equal skill and talent as their wedding pictures.Â This is most definitely an optional type of photo session, but photographers can cover bridal showers, wedding rehearsal dinners, bachelor parties, etc.
