An engagement session is always very special, but some couples wonder why they should include it in their budget for their wedding season. After all, a wedding photographer for just your special day is expensive enough, right? But I think engagements actually are very important, and can help set the tone for your wedding, and they preserve a special time in your life that you’ll never experience again. Here are some of the reasons an engagement session is a great idea:
-You can get to know me, your photographer, and prevent any awkwardness for your wedding day. I love people, and getting to know them really helps me make sure I design a shoot around their individual personalities. This is especially important if you don’t “love” being photographed, and can really benefit you even if you do! It will also get you familiar with flattering poses, what to do with your hands, and interacting with your fiancé in front of the camera.
-An engagement session is much more flexible than a wedding day, and there is not the added pressure of managing multiple hairstylist/makeup artist schedules, bridal party appointments, and the timeline of a church or venue. Wedding days are often a blur of many people herding you here and there and keeping you on track, so your engagement session can be more relaxed and fun!
-Your engagement session is the chance to show off your style, and the things you love to do with your significant other. Whether you are a couple who loves the city and the downtown scene, or you love the gardens or a park, we try to find the location that really showcases you. As you can see below, each of these couples has their own personal style and hobbies, so they have a ton of variety.
