Dress Up

You dress in regular clothes everyday. When one says dress up, she simply doesn’t mean your good clothes or your church clothes, she means SLAY.

Step outside of the box and in a fun and unique way, express your personal style at maximum personification level 13 with my personal ALT (alternative) method: accessorize, layer, (add) texture.


Location will be everything. Be sure to CHECK THE WEATHER on your date and have a back up venue in case. Shooting at a location that has great indoor and outdoor aesthetics and decor would be ideal. On a budget? Try utilizing a church or a hotel lobby. Lots of places want the press and photography for their media outlets and won’t mind.


Your engagement session should absolutely capture the best of you as individuals and as a couple. Have fun, laugh, flirt… it should be natural.

Hire a Stylist

It’s a long exhaustive list of things that have to be done during wedding planning. Hiring a personal stylist will eliminate the headache, will ensure both partners look their best and make sure ever minor detail is tended too. One less major thing to worry about. Plus, you get to see the possibilities of having a personal bridal stylist to assist with planning and executing the image of everyone involved without the critique and harsh criticism of others.
