If you’re like many couples we have met over the years you may be questioning whether or not booking an engagement session is worth it – we get it! Most couples say the same thing, we always hear things like “I’m awkward in front of the camera” or “I won’t know what do to and I’ll look silly.” But an engagement session is something you definitely don’t want to miss out on. And we’re going to tell you why!
Getting to Know Your Photographer
An engagement session is a great time to strengthen your bond with your photographer! Your wedding day is so important to you, it is also important to me and my team. I want to make sure you feel comfortable with both myself and my team through some of the most intimate and emotional moments of the day. Know that we’re there to capture the day as it happens, fix your dress, and keep you on track. Long story short, when you have a chance to work with your photographer before the big day it makes the day feel even more amazing and the photos turn out more spectacular than you could have imagined.
Getting Comfortable In-Front of the Camera
I’ve done it, most people do it, we overthink and we freeze up in-front of the camera. This is normal! My team and I have been working professionally with real couples for so long that our methods have you feeling comfortable and relaxed, this translates into natural looking photos. See our galleries? 99% of the couples in them have said the same thing you might be thinking: “I’m so awkward!” but look how natural they look! With gentle guidance, prompts, and poses you’ll be pulling it off in no time. This is great practice for your wedding day as well, your wedding photos will feel so much more authentic with a little practice during your engagement session!
Getting Creative in a More Casual Setting
Engagement sessions have no crazy timeline, they are simple, fun and reflect you two! We can get as creative as you’d like. In fact the complete guide you’ll receive provides an array of location and outfit tips that have been carefully thought out to guide you into planning a stunning shoot. I am always ready to bounce idea’s with you for your shoot as well, I love planning them!
More Photo’s of the Two of You
How often can we get away with getting dressed up and having fun photos of us taken without seeming over-the-top? Or how many times have you thought to yourselves while on a date, “We look so good, I wish someone could take a sweet photo of us!” Here we have a chance to get more photo’s of the two of you dressed up and feeling your best!
Perfect to Use for the Wedding Planning Process
You can use your photos for many things on top of hanging them in your home! Here are a few examples: wedding website, save the date, guestbook, wedding shower, and as decor on the wedding day! Check out our services page for a list of printing services here.
