Trying to decide if an engagement session is worth it??? Here are 5 reasons why you should definitely have an engagement session with your wedding photographer!
1. Get to know your photographer before your wedding day!
Your engagement session is the perfect time to get to know your photographer and get some time in front of the camera before your big day! Being in front of the camera and being the center of attention can be super intimidating, so choose a photographer you love and you’ll feel so much more comfortable with them.
2. Let your photographer get to know you!
At your engagement session, we take the time to learn how you two interact, what you like, what you don’t like and how to photograph you in the most genuine way! Your wedding day will flow so much smoother if we have that figured out before hand. There’s so much more that goes into taking beautiful wedding photos than just knowing how to use a fancy camera! We want you to look at your photos and really feel like they are 100% you guys!
3. Use it as your wedding day hair and makeup trial!
The best way to know how your hair and makeup will hold up and photograph on your wedding day?? A trial run! Most brides do hair and make up trials before their weddings, so why not do it on your engagement session day so that you look your best for your pictures?!
4. You’ll have photos to use for wedding purposes!
There are a ton of things that our couples use their engagement session images for such as: save the date cards, bridal shower images, thank you cards, a wedding website, a guest book, etc.. All of these are important aspects of your wedding planning that will benefit so very much from beautiful engagement photos!
5. You get to use this day as a time to really enjoy being engaged!
You’re getting dressed up, doing your hair and makeup, spending several hours of your time with your significant other, so why not make it a date night?! The engagement period of your life goes by in a flurry of planning and stressing! Set this night aside to just enjoy being engaged, to soak it all in, to reconnect with the love of your life. We promise you wont regret it!
