Congratulations!! You’re engaged!! Now what?
Time to hop on the wedding train, full steam ahead, and start planning! One important element that is often overlooked in the preliminary stages is engagement photos. Why is this session so essential?
Engagement sessions give you, the bride and groom to be, the opportunity to get acquainted with the photographer you’ve chosen to capture your special occasion. You are introduced to your wedding photographer’s shooting, creative and communicative style. It’s a relaxed environment, where you can ask questions and increase your comfort level in front of the camera. You get to really express yourself and it gives your photographer the chance to learn more about your relationship. The more a photographer knows about you, the better the visual story they can present. It is an ideal situation for everyone involved.
Want some tips on how to ensure an awesome engagement session?
1. Wear comfortable clothing that exudes confidence.
2. Bring several outfit options for variety.
3. Get your hair styled a few days before the session for a more natural look.
4. Ladies, if you love makeup, bring it!
5. Be prepared to laugh a lot and have fun!
