Engagements and Couples

There won't be too many other times in your life that you'll be able to get portraits of just you and your special person, with no one else around. This portrait experience is about seeing your connection - the way he holds her, how she feels safe with him, how they fit together so perfectly. 

Whether you're planning your wedding or already married, this is about just you two...

Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When our couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images! For this portrait experience, I can help you choose a location that is either special to you, or really fits your vibe as a couple. When we meet for your session, I will help you pose and give you easy prompts to get natural, flowing movements from you so that your photos come across as effortless and carefree!

We traveled across the country for our engagement photos and Andrea showed us some areas she knew of to take photos. She put us at ease as we really had no idea how to take "good" photos and directed us to help bring out our best. We had so many compliments on our photographer and everyone wanted to know who took our photos.

"Andrea put us at ease..."

Kind words from past clients

Once I have answered any questions you may have and you have decided that the Andrea Simmons Portrait Experience is exactly what you’re looking for, the next step is booking. You can save your date by signing your contract and paying your retainer fee online. 

How do we move forward with booking our portrait session? 

I am more than willing to travel for these sessions! I actually love it when my couples ask us to photograph them in a location that means something special to them!  Up to one hour of travel from Central Maine is included in my packages, further locations do incur a fee. 

will you travel for our engagement or couples session?

I recommend to my clients to choose 1-2 locations that are near each other. We don’t want to miss out on great lighting, or use up too much time driving between locations! Having two locations can be great for getting more variety out of your session

how many locations should we choose for our session?

I average between 60 and 120 final edited images for portrait sessions. I love delivering my client’s files quickly and easily via an online gallery. You will have the ability to print, share and download your images as much as you want.

how many final digital images will i receive from my session?

I offer professional prints for sale in the online gallery. These are completely optional, as you will already have the digital images available for download, and a print release. The prints are reasonably priced, and are shipped right to your home within 1-2 weeks.

can i order prints from you? 

Weather is always unpredictable, which is why I schedule a rain date for every one of my portrait clients when booking. That second date will be held open for you until your session has been completed, and we will decide together on rescheduling the morning of your session.

what if it rains on my session date? 

I absolutely love photographing in Acadia National Park. I am very familiar with the park, and can recommend 10-15 different location options there! These sessions do have an added fee of $350, which covers my extra time and driving expenses to get there.

do you photograph at Acadia national park? 

Yes! I promise there will be no awkward silence, I talk way too much for that to be possible! I guide all of my clients through a workflow of different poses, where I tell you exactly where to put your hands, how to smile, and where to look, all while keeping you looking natural!

we are awkward in front of the camera, can you help us?

Yes! I love including your pet during your portrait session! Dogs bring a lot of fun to sessions, but can also take some extra time and patience to work with. Please be sure to bring some treats, and a leash so that we can tie them up nearby if we want to get a few of just you!

Can i bring my dog with us?

I will send you a sneak peek of your images within 1-2 days of your session, and the final gallery will be delivered within 3-6 weeks of your session. On average, most galleries are delivered within 3-4 weeks. 

what is the turnaround time for receiving my final images?
