Preparing for your couple's shoot with Alyssa Weeks Photography

Ahh! If you're reading this, that means your couples shoot is coming up and it's time to start planning! I am SO excited for your shoot!!

Below is lots of information and tips to ensure the best experience for you and your S/O at your photoshoot!!


It truly is all about styling for your photos! The backdrops are beautiful, but I like my clients to be the focus of my images! You don't need to match, but be sure coordinate your outfits! See my "styling your couple's shoot" Pinterest board, here, for some inspiration!

Remember to accessorize! The details make all the difference.

Most of all, dress for comfortability and confidence! Additionally, I recommend avoiding wearing shoes that are difficult to walk in. We will be having so much fun at your shoot, I want to make sure you're comfortable! Another option is to bring sandals to slip on when we're walking from location to location.


Ladies, if you decide not to have your hair and makeup professionally styled, I recommend wearing your makeup a little heavier than normal and be sure to wear a lip color. Remember, everything looks less dramatic on camera. And a little pro tip, bring touch up makeup to put on to freshen up for the second half of the shoot.

When to Arrive: Please arrive 10 minutes early. I want to make sure you get your full shooting time and aren't rushed before. Txt me when you arrive and I will tell you where to meet me!

What to expect: I love to have fun with my clients! I will pose you for several photos, but I also like to photograph candid moments too! So prep your S/O too! We will be walking, hugging, and laughing (even if we have to fake it for a couple *insert winky emoji).

Props: No large props are allowed, but small props that you can hold are totally fine!

To respect the environment, props such as glitter, confetti, smoke bombs, etc. are also not allowed.

After the shoot:

First off, I always encourage my clients to plan something fun after your shoot! After all, you are all dressed up!

You can expect to receive your digital images 14 days after your session via an online gallery!

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at!

I am SO excited for your shoot!!
