Engagement sessions…where oh where to begin!? Booking an engagement session isn’t only a great way to capture photos of you and your bride or groom prior to your wedding day but it’s also an invaluable way to get everyone comfortable with all the photography and direction and posing (or not) that is going to be taking place on your wedding day!
Why does your photographer love engagement sessions with you? One of the many reasons is because it gives me the ability to hang out and get to know you without all the stress of the wedding day. I usually find that it’s during this session that we discover our similar love for all things covered in white chocolate or friends we have in common! From serious couples to silly ones, getting to know you prior to your wedding day in this relaxed, casual atmosphere really helps me build a relationship with you!
Why should you love engagement sessions with your photographer? One of the many reasons is because it gives you the ability to just hang out and get to know me without all the stress of the wedding day. I usually find that while you may have fallen in love with my style/work online you may know very little about my personality! Getting to know me prior to your wedding day in this relaxed, casual atmosphere really helps you build your relationship with me!
Why else does your photographer love engagement sessions with you? This is my time to experiment with the two of you! How do the two of you fit together? What poses accentuate your best features? Are you naturally comfortable with a lot or a little direction? Before I photograph a wedding I will usually look back through the engagement photos to remind myself what worked and what didn't. This is a great way for me to prepare for your wedding day!
Why else should you love engagement sessions with your photographer? This is your time to see what it’s like being in front of the camera! How does it feel to be photographed? Are you comfortable and relaxed? Are you stiff and stressed? Before your wedding day take a look back through the engagement photos to remind yourself what worked and what didn't. This is a great way for you to prepare for being in front of the camera on your wedding day!
From relationship building to getting comfortable in front of and behind the camera, engagement sessions are just as beneficial for the photographer as they are for the couple! Remember to make booking an engagement session with your photographer a priority!
