Engagement Shoot Q&A
We are not responsible for bad weather or permits.
What should we wear?
WC Imagery recommends you have two (2) looks. One look should be casual, the other dressy. Your outfits do not have to match or be coordinated, but it does look nice if you choose to do so.
What should I wear?
Typically, the clothes that look the best are those that give you a nice silhouette. No matter your shape/size, you want something that shows your waist and gives you curves. A little cleavage can be nice, but think classy and sexy, like for date night. You don't want things "sticking out" or "rolling" but showing is ok. Even if you're planning to go more casual, like jeans and a top- think curves, not rolls. Let some skin show, not "stick out." Most important, you need to feel comfortable and confident. It WILL show in the images. If it's something you've never worn, or never would wear, it's probably not the best choice for a shoot.
- For some outfit ideas and inspiration, search "classy engagement pictures" on Pinterest. And don't be afraid of color!
Please note you might have to change in a public bathroom or your vehicle
How long should we expect our session to be?
You should expect your session to be approximately an hour to an hour and a half. WC Imagery will not end the session until we feel we have the impact shots we are looking for.
We can do your shoot wherever you would like as long it if its in the 20 miles of NYC anything outside will be fee charge for travel time.

Where should we do our shoot?
What if bad weather is predicted?
We are not responsible for bad weather. The shoot will be honored unless weather is causing extreme danger to travel (i.e. roads closed due to snowstorm). Keep in mind, this is just like your wedding day... we can't reschedule due to a little rain! We always recommend you choose a location that has some option for indoor/under cover area, but it is not necessary (even though you ask us to suggest a location, its still your responsibility to look into the location). If you choose to reschedule your shoot because of the weather, or any other reason, please see above, "What if we need to cancel/reschedule?"
If you need to cancel or reschedule, please do so more than two week in advance. Any cancellation or rescheduling done within 14 days of the shoot will incur a fee of $350. (Regardless if the engagement session was included in your collection/Package.)
What if we need to cancel/reschedule?
WC Imagery wants to make sure you do not miss a minute of your shoot. We often have more than 1 shoot per day, and we want to be sure each of our clients get all the time they need to get great shots.
Running late will cut into your shoot time, which means less pictures; this is no different from your wedding day.
We also understand that sometimes situations happen that cause us to run late. Whether it’s your fault, the makeup/hair team, traffic, or any other situation, please let us know at least 45 minutes before your shoot so we can plan accordingly. We may need to adjust our meeting point to accommodate for lighting issues.
Uh, Oh!! We’re running late!
Will be taken care of by the client.
All parking fees will be taken care of by the client.
We do not accept text messages. If you have our photographers cell phone number, please CALL that number.
Only email & phone calls will be answered.
If you have ANY QUESTIONS regarding your shoot, it is best to call to save time.
