Announce your ♥, the tone of your upcoming wedding, and let your guests know if they want to have the time of their lives, they better save the date!

Each session is “ROAD-TRIP STYLE”…..we meet, drive around for 1.5-2 hours and take pics! Guys, this means no boring dragged out photo-session, Gals this means a ton of outfit changes and different backgrounds for a ton of variety, and most importantly, a chance for your man to get to know me and feel comfortable with me before the big day! Includes 3-5 outfit changes, 3-5 locations and an online gallery to share with family/friends to purchase favorite images.

Engagement Sessions-
Engagement sessions with 2-3 outfits , 3 locations- $300 creative fee.

Images start at $10 each. If you can’t decide and its adding up quickly, a flat- rate of $150 for images 0-200 images, $200 for galleries that contain more than 200 images, paid via paypal, will allow access and downloads of all images taken during session. If your wedding is booked through Rustically Romantic, you will be given a $100 download credit for your top 10 picks!

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

TIPS/TRICKS, POLICIES,

BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT,

HOW TO PREPARE,

AND WHAT TO BRING FOR YOUR UPCOMING SHOOT

SCHEDULING YOUR DATE– If you are having out of town guests, the earlier you can send them a save the date, the better. They will appreciate having time to financially plan and make travel arrangements early, saving them money.

TIME Shoots take 2-2.5 hrs.

LOCATIONS– Engagement sessions are done road trip style…I drive, you guys drive and we stop at coolness along the way. We will go to 3-5 different outdoor locations, based on the outfits you brought.

 **WHAT TO SHOP FOR AND BRING **

                  1. CASH.

                  2. Outfits with shoes

     OUTFITS Bring atleast 3 outfits ( really for me, the more choices the better)-

If you want, send me a photo upon booking and based on “your look” I will help with outfit suggestions, theme, color scheme……if you decide to DYI, here’s some tips-

 -Aim for 3-5 very different looks….

 

GUYS-

  • If you have a fashionista of a man...let him go nuts! That means you need to step up your game and bring some great dresses, skirts, heels, clutches…….

  • If not, bring him stuff he would normally wear that loosely goes with each of your outfits….not the best day to spring some “girlie” stuff on him to wear. As long as he looks like himself, the pics will turn out great!

 GALS-

  •  Ideas for looks for gals……..

1. All American- Jeans or daisy dukes with flannels and converse or boots

2. Maxi dress with sandals or no shoes, with him in a button up.

3. A retro look is always amazing! Fun dresses and full skirts.

4. Skinny jeans or leggings with tall boots, layers up top, infinity scarf.

5. Bright boho dresses or tops with great jewelry, great shoes.

6. Jeans/ dresses, cowboy boots, great top

7. Jean jacket and a sundress

8. Theme- If you have matching or rival jerseys, if you guys love too hunt together, dress the part-

9.  Plan an outfit based on a cute big hat, around a super cute huge blanket or flag to bring along, or off a pinterest photo! Shop e-bay, thrift, Zaful, Rosegal, borrow from friends, etc….It does not have to be expensive

Hair and makeup……. Hair should be done. Makeup should be darker than usual, with a darker cheek & dark eye. Brows are important in pics, so groom them and fill them in a bit!!

WEATHER- Unless it it a full downpour within an hour of your session, like your adventurous love story, it’s a go! Overcast is the absolute best….so unless full wet rain is comin’ down, we shoot!

CONFIRMING YOUR DATE– If you confirm your photo shoot date and time, it becomes yours. That means, payment is due on that date.Once you confirm, you are also confirming that you are purchasing that time from Rustically Romantic.Therefore, if you cancel, or never show up, payment is still due. Please do not book with Darby Johnson Photography, if you are not willing to abide by this.

Cancellation Policy– Upon scheduling, client immediately agrees to follow cancellation policy. All cancellations must be made 4 weeks in advance, otherwise payment is due in full. If you do not agree to the terms, do not schedule a session.
