Do we really need engagement photos?
This is a question that I hear A LOT from my clients. And I'll be honest with you here... are Engagement Photos necessary? No. Are they super fun to do and will you get AH-mazing images to help you remember this special time in your life? Absolutely. Here are a few things to consider...
+ Practice Makes Perfect :: Spending a bit of time in front of the camera is always a good thing. I'll be able to help you with positioning/movement and everything we do together will then be that much more familiar to you on the big-day!
+ Relationship Matters :: The more comfortable we are together, the better your wedding day photos will be! Doing an Engagement Session allows me to observe how you two interact with each other/your personalities and you'll get more comfortable working with me as well. On the wedding day, we'll know and understand each other better and it will certainly show in the images.
+ Make Things! :: Often my couples choose to do some pretty cool stuff with their Engagement Photos, including: Save-The-Date Cards, images for your slideshow, a custom Guest Book, Parent Gift Albums, Table Numbers, and Thank You signs.
+ Practice Your Look :: E-Sessions are a great excuse to do a Trial-Run on your make-up! You can visit your salon/stylist the day of our shoot and try out your look in-advance. It will allow you to be more confident of your make-up looking natural on the wedding day and make any necessary adjustments with your stylist.
+ Because, well... Your Engaged :: So here's this little window of time in your life. A slice that perhaps may be only a few months to a few years long. You found someone. And they found you. You fell in love. They fell in love with you.
Congrats on your Engagement and here's to enjoying it fully!
