Have you been wondering… ‘shall I have an engagement shoot’? Are you wondering if it is worth it? And what will you possibly need the photos for? Maybe you are camera shy or feel like engagement photos are an unnecessary waste of time. But in my opinion, they are super important. Here are a few reasons why.
- We will get to know each other before the wedding day!
On your wedding day we will be together pretty much the whole day! Having established a connection prior to the big day, we will feel so much more comfortable around each other and it is a huge advantage. As a result, I will know how you interact with each other as a couple and what personalities you have. These details will help me capture moments on the wedding day that will be unique to just the two of you 🙂
- You will get an opportunity to become comfortable in front of the camera.
A lot of couples feel super uncomfortable in front of the camera. They worry how the photos will turn out, how they will look in them, how they will pose. Having an engagement session will give you a taste of what to expect on the big day. You will know how I work and what to expect from me and that’s definitely one thing less for you to worry about on the wedding day. You will get a chance to practice your posing, get more comfortable in front of the camera and in front of me, and focus on just the two of you. I will help you feel at ease and I can guarantee that you wedding photos will feel more relaxed!
- You’ll see professional photos of yourselves before the wedding!
If you have never had your professional photos taken as a couple you probably cannot imagine how your wedding photos will look. An engagement shoot will give you just that. It will give you an opportunity to see a preview of my work. Once you have seen your engagement photos and you get excited you will definitely gain more confidence in yourselves and me!
- Test your wedding hair and make up!
Why not having your hair and make up done on the day of the engagement session? This way you will get to see how it looks in the photos and you can let your stylist know if there is something that you would like to change.
- Endless things you can do with your engagement photos.
Your engagement images can be used in so many ways. They can be used for your save the date cards, for your wedding website, or for your wedding guest book. They can be gifts to your parents or grandparents who would love to have some portraits of you two! The possibilities are endless…
The engagement photos really are fun!! They will tell your story and bring out the love you have for each other!
