COUPLES AND ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS
Hello gorgeous ladies! I know you've been waiting for all the details on our couples session deal, so here is all the info :) Remember, these are outdoor couples sessions (engagement style) and not couples boudoir.
First I want to talk about who this shoot is for and why it's an amazing thing to do. This shoot is for any couple. You can be dating, engaged, newly weds, or a couple who has been married for a long time. Your marital/relationship status doesn't matter. So many couples don't get quality photos of themselves until the wedding or engagement. Then once the wedding is over, the couple often neglects to continue documenting their relationship. If they have children, they might get family photos, but they don't get photos of just the two of them to celebrate their relationship.
You need to celebrate and document the two of you. It's so important and really adds to the health and strength of the relationship. It's not just about having beautiful photos of my husband and me together (but that is an important element), but rather about the experience. The shoot itself is time for us to have fun and bond. I can close my eyes when he spins me. We gaze lovingly into each others eyes. We get to walk holding hands. Embrace while saying nothing. We can strongly feel our love while having fun with each other. Our love is being documented and celebrated. We get to take that time to just stop all the busyness and stresses of life and just focus one each other. The experience is amazing, but the images are powerful too. The images are truly an outward expression of the love you have for each other. You always have them to look at and feel that emotion and bond between the two of you. It's also a way to show your love to the world.
I hope I've sold you on the idea of these sessions, because I truly believe in them. My husband and I regularly get these shoots done for ourselves. We find it to be an important part of strengthening our bond.
Now I want to tell you a little bit more about us and why you should use us :) I'm Trina, and my husband and I both shoot these sessions. So you'll be working with one of us, but likely Jonathan as he does the majority of our couples shoots. We both have won many awards for our photographic abilities, including being named the #1 wedding photographer and #1 portrait photographer in the King5 Evening Best of Western WA multiple times. We step outside the norms of photography. We go that extra mile to get amazing lighting and poses. We will certainly guide and direct you in the posing, but we do it in such a way that many of the photos look more candid because during that pose we're still capturing your natural expressions and emotion. Jonathan has a degree in film from the USC School of Cinematic Arts and brings that film and cinema background to the shoot.
This deal includes a 45 minute session. A 45 minute session usually is $300 for the session fee (the session fee covers the shoot itself and not digitals, prints or products- those are sold separately). Approx 2-3 weeks after your session your photos will be ready for viewing. You'll meet us at our downtown Tacoma office. The location is 539 Broadway, Tacoma, WA 98402. At this appointment you'll choose what you want to purchase. There's never any pressure to purchase as we only want you to get what you love, but we feel confident that you'll love these and want them all :) If for any reason you want to skip this viewing/ordering session, the only way to do that is if you know you'll want at least all the digitals. In that case, we'll send you an online invoice and once that's paid we'll send you an online gallery where you can view and share your images for up to 6 months and where you can download them as many times and to as many places as you want within that time.
The session fee for this deal is ONLY $25!!! We've reduced it from $300 to just $25 but for a limited time and for a limited number of sessions. As an added bonus, any digital images you decide to purchase are half off the regular price. If you purchase at least 15 digital images, prints are half off and books and canvases will also have discounts. To top it off, we also offer payment plans, take credit and take PayPal financing.

Since this is such a drastic discount we're only offering it to the first 25 people who book and through Tuesday evening. So if 25 people have booked before Tuesday evening, we'll close the deal down. We don't anticipate offering any deals on couples/engagement photos again this year, so if you're interested, book now. This $25 session fee doubles as a non-refundable retainer and holds your slot for you. If you need to reschedule, we'll need at least 48 hours notice and you'll have to choose from one of the dates/times still available on our calendar. We shoot rain or shine, with the exception of thunder storms.
Before booking, be sure to check out the different locations so you can choose the location with the setting that fits best with what you're looking for. Click these locations to see couples photos that we've taken there.
