Frequently Asked Questions

Engagements

We feel engagement sessions are an opportunity for unique photography because they are an intimate timeless document of a couples love for one another. This unique feel probably is influenced by this session being the first time the future bride and groom are being photographed together professionally after the proposal. We feel that we excel at capturing the emotions of couples in love. We try to tell a story by use of our imagery...weather its a touch, a kiss or a hug...that allows the couple to have precious memories of this moment in their lives. We love providing information to our potential clients so that they can know what the CivicPhotos Experience will be like in terms of an engagement session captured by us.

Frequently Asked Questions - Engagements

How is the theme & location for the session selected?

We love capturing the things about you as a couple which makes you unique. During a phone conference we will discuss ideas and interests which would make for captivating photo opportunities.

When will we receive the images from the session?

Usually the images will be edited and delivered to you via dropbox within two weeks of the session date.

How will you direct or pose us during the session?

During the session we will often ask the guy to playfully flirt with the girl. Since you are in love with each other this playful flirting will make the girl respond in a naturally emotional way and that is the moment we will want to capture with our cameras.

What should we wear to the engagement session?

Pinterest is a great spot for ideas but we encourage couples to select outfits which differ from scene to scene. Layering your outfits with personal accessories is a great way to add more essence to the images we will capture of you. For your images to be more dynamic we don't suggest the guy and girl to match colors perfectly.

Will we receive the copyright release for the images?

Yes you will receive a copyright release which will allow you to print, make copies of and share on social media any images you receive from your session.

Bridals

A Bridal Session is like a fashionable warm-up for the bride for her wedding day. Many girls dream of the moment they are getting married from the time they are younger so bridal sessions are usually completely emotionally rewarding. Styling with a wedding gown just about always makes for great photographs especially when the bride allows herself to really be "in the moment." We feel we create beautiful imagery during bridal sessions because of the emotionally focused style of photography we shoot. Having great senses of humor is part of the equation we use to get the bride and her mom/bridesmaid/maid of honor to relax during the session. Below is information we love to provide to you as a future bride so that you can immerse yourself in the CivicPhotos Experience during your bridal session.

Frequently Asked Questions - Bridals

What should I expect during the session?

What should I bring to the bridal session?

Once again Pinterest is a great spot for ideas but some popular items would be your veil, a bridal Bouquet, the accessories you would be wearing on your wedding day, your shoes, obviously your bridal dress and happy thoughts about your future husband which will help you smile effortlessly.

Weddings

Weddings are the climax of a couples love story since its probably the most anticipated day of their lives. These love stories we love telling by the imagery we capture throughout the wedding day. All of the small details which are available during this special day can tell a unique tale which all add up to a beautiful memory for the bride and groom. The dress, the first kiss, the wedding party, the first dance, the wedding cake cutting....the exit.....its all the things that we at CivicPhotos love to capture at every wedding we cover. We are unique as photographers since we usually don't work on an hourly basis...we focus on stories available throughout the whole wedding day from the time the bride starts getting her makeup done until the end of the reception. We love sharing information with our potential future brides and grooms so that they can know what the CivicPhotos Experience is in terms of weddings.
