Having an Engagement Session with Susan Slade Photography is a great way of capturing your love before your big day! It is a great way for us to get to know each other and to ease into having professional pictures taken. Many couples will use these images for their “save the date” cards to share with family and friends. Some display the beautiful engagement photographs during the wedding day. We also have beautiful engagement guest signing books. You choose the images, we design the book and then on your wedding day your guests can enjoy seeing your engagement photographs and you end up with a beautiful keepsake book of your wedding guests.


Susan Slade Engagement Photography offers a “boutique” experience to their clients. You will feel pampered throughout each step. Many of our clients have become our friends, due to the fun and creative energy we bring to the process and ultimately to your engagement session.  We look forward to providing you lovely images that you will enjoy for a lifetime!


The process is simple: We begin with a fun and creative brainstorming Engagement Consultation. We help you decide on the perfect location(s) for your session. Next we set up your 1-2 hour session, we help prepare you for the session with posing, hair and makeup suggestions and wardrobe ideas. After we capture amazing images that reflect your personality and interests, we set up an in-person Viewing Session about 2 weeks later. 




Engagement Sessions are $299 for 2 hours | 2 locations | 2 apparel changes and include a complimentary creative consultation. All Wedding clients receive a complimentary Engagement Session. Engagement print and digital collections available and a la carte options begin at $50.


Susan Slade Photography will help you creatively plan your engagement session. We will ask you about your interests, how you met, and your favorite activities to come up with a great location.
