There are many reasons it is important to take engagement photos once you have become engaged. An engagement session with your photographer is without a doubt one of the greatest services you and your fiancé can take advantage of prior to your wedding. As a couple who likely has never been photographed professionally before, the engagement session is a valuable tool every couple should utilize or insist upon. Some couples may feel it’s a waste of time or is not necessary, however there are many valuable reasons why you will benefit from utilizing this opportunity.
Establishing a relationship with your photographer long before your wedding will make a difference in the outcome of your wedding images.
I like spend about an hour or two with my couples , listening to them, having fun with them, getting to know them, before we even snap any photos.
I take note of how they interact with each other, their individual personalities, and even their quirks. These mental notes, along with many others help me to capture and photograph images on the wedding day that are unique to that couple.
I can promise you once you see your engagement images and you are excited about them, you will have more confidence in yourselves and in us. On the wedding day you will look forward to having your picture taken, instead of dreading the thought of having a camera pointed at you all day.
