Believe it or not, you’ll probably be using those engagement photos over and over again before the big day arrives. Our clients love sending out photo-laced Save The Date cards or using their images for their wedding website. Other clients actually incorporate engagement images into their wedding invitation suite! We’ve also created wedding sign-in albums for clients with engagement photos in them. However you choose to dress up your wedding stationery, we’re almost sure you’ll find multiple uses for these fun, casual photographs.
Reason #2 : PRACTICE FOR THE BIG DAY
When your big day arrives, some couples may be nervous about being in front of the lens. Having an engagement session beforehand is a great way for us to get to know each other and practice working together. You’ll feel more confident for your wedding photos, and know exactly what to expect when working with us.
Reason #3: YOU GET TO EXPRESS YOURSELF
In your engagement session, anything goes! We highly encourage every kind of self-expression, including fashion taste, favorite colors, hobbies, special locations, and anything else that’s unique to you as a couple. Sometimes couples choose locations where he proposed, others a favorite bar or outdoor spot. We encourage you to incorporate props, pets, hobbies, or anything else that’s special to you! We love getting creative and having clients bring their own creative ideas into their engagement session.
Reason #4: WE GET TO SEE WHAT WORKS
A lot goes into getting that perfect shot of a couple! Angles, lighting, and the right posing all heavily contribute to a perfect couple’s portrait. Sometimes it takes us photographers a few tries to really nail down what makes a couple look their absolute best. An engagement shoot is the perfect way to experiment without worrying about time constraints as we do during a wedding. Once we try a few things and find your perfect look for photos, we can easily replicate it on the big day, providing you with stunning shots gotten very quickly under a pressured situation!
