1. You may feel uncomfortable in front of a camera and that is reason number one you absolutely should have an engagement session before your big day! Having a session with your photographer will warm you up to how they work and prepare you to be followed by cameras on your wedding day. Also, it gives your photographer the opportunity to work with you and learn about you. Your photographer will have the chance to help you feel comfortable and look your best. Not only will they help you feel more comfortable, but they’ll also learn your best angles and your personality therefore aiding in a more comfortable photographic experience on your wedding day.
2. Cut loose! An engagement session gives you and your partner the opportunity to tell your story! If you’re a relaxed couple who loves riding dirt bikes you get to let that shine. On the other hand if you love getting dressed up and heading out to the city you can show that too. Your engagement photos are you at your best – besides, how often do you get professional images of you and your sweetheart doing the things you love?!
3. If you’re looking for ideas for announcements, save-the-dates, invitations or even guestbook ideas for your wedding your engagement session can help with that. Together with your photographer you can design creative products to tell your guests about the big day. Create a fun image with sidewalk chalk, use a banner, or have a design created with your favorite image. The images from your session can serve many purposes! They can decorate anything from your guestbook to the table numbers and centerpieces of your reception tables.
An engagement session is a great idea – have fun and make it entirely your own!
