On the fence about scheduling an engagement session with your wedding photographer? Not sure why you would or maybe just nervous to take photos that don’t necessarily have a direct purpose? Check out my 4 reasons on why you should book an engagement session.
1. Getting comfortable with your photographer and the camera
Stiff. Nervous. Unnatural. A few of the things you do not want in your wedding photos but can happen easily when put on the spot in front of a camera. Getting comfortable in a no pressure zone like your engagement session with your fiancé helps with those pre-wedding jitters. Use this time to laugh off the awkardness and loosen up with your photographer. Our ultimate goal is to tell your unique story, being a friend for you during this exciting season of your lives.
2. It’s a heck of a lot of fun
Getting all dressed up and cuddling with your best friend. What’s not fun about that? There are so many opportunities to make your session FUN. Bring a little champagne, go for a piggy back ride, or go to your favorite ice cream shop. And don’t forget to laugh at yourself too.
3. A chance to have photos in your element
Don’t get me wrong – wedding days can be totally unique but they are an occasion not your everyday life. I love it when my couples make their session unique to who they are, whether that’s choosing a place that means something to you or bringing your Volkswagen bug to get a few shots with. I’ve shot sessions at the couple’s home, their alma mater, their favorite coffee shop, and the list goes on.
4. Sharing with friends & family
Lastly, engagement photos are so fun to have for your wedding website, a guest book or your save-the-dates, only to mention a few of the ways you can use them. Friends and family love to be able to see beautiful photos before the big day. Plus, I love to get my couple’s save-the-dates and wedding invites.
