Congrats on your engagement! Engagement photoshoots are an important aspect of the wedding planning process.

Engagement photoshoots are an opportunity for the couple and the photographer to get to know each others preferences and style. Whether used for save-the-dates, wedding invitations, or as wall art in the couple’s home, engagement pictures are a timeless keepsake that will bring joy for years to come!

Top 3 Reasons To Book An Engagement Session

Booking an engagement photoshoot is a must for capturing the love and excitement between you and your fiance and creating lasting memories of this special time in your lives. Santa Barbara offers gorgeous locations for your engagement pictures! From Rosewood Miramar beach, Santa Barbara Courthouse, The Ritz Carlton and beyond. Here are my top 3 reasons on why I recommend booking an engagement photoshoot!

  1. You can use your engagement pictures for your save the dates, wedding website and guest books which I sell HERE!
  2. It’s that much needed date night that you didn’t know you needed! Time away with your SO to get pretty and relax from wedding planning. Don’t forget to reserve dinner reservations for after your shoot. Please allow for at least a 45min-1 hour space between your reservation and the end of your session.
  3. This is the perfect time to get to know me, your wedding photographer! Not only have we met via our consultation, but now we get to actually meet in person. This will help for when I walk into your wedding that I just feel like another friend showing up to support you. Once you get in front of my lens you will realize how fun it is, how easy it is, and how photogenic you truly are! Let me show off your love and help you feel comfortable in front of my lens prior to your wedding. Now when wedding day comes you are prepped and comfortable and we hardly take any of your time away from guests.

“Alyssa was the very first professional photographer my fiancé and I have ever worked with, and she was
amazing!!! We were nervous going into it, and she made the whole experience so comfortable and fun for us. She knew exactly how to prompt us for posing in a way that made us look natural and really showcased our love for one another. It was one of the most fun dates my fiancé and I have ever done! We drove all the way from San Francisco to work with Alyssa and we are SO happy we did.”
