Engagement photo session or no engagement photo session? That is the question!

Here are 3 things to consider if you’re on the fence about scheduling your pre-wedding photo-op…

  1. It’s a walk in the park!

Engagement sessions give you the option for a fun and casual environment. It’s not often that a professional photographer is snapping photos of you so this is a great chance to practice getting comfortable in front of the camera! Your session allows you the freedom to go with the flow and take your time while allowing us to get those picture perfect images. You and your fiance will be able to relax enjoy eachothers company while we capture all of those special and intimate moments between the two of you.

  1. Use your images to create materials for wedding day!

You just got engaged and are only at the beginning of this wonderful ride together. What better way to memorialize this special moment in time than by incorporating some of these images into your upcoming wedding day?

These shots can be used for your wedding programs, wedding website, or even your Save the Dates. A lot of couples incorporate their engagement session photos into their wedding in the form of an enlarged photo or a book that your guests can use to leave a little note of love!

  1. Location (and weather) are more flexible!

We all have specific locations that we hold dear and some places have that natural ability to put smiles on our faces. It’s a beautiful thing to be able to snap some photos where you met for the first time, had your first date, or even where the proposal took place!

The engagement session gives you the freedom to choose locations like this that you may not be able to get to on your wedding day (not to mention the ability to avoid or prepare for inclement weather!)

You may have your heart set on a specific location and find that, come wedding day, you are unable to take pictures there. Planning a pre-wedding session gives you all of the power to avoid those wedding day curve balls and tailor your shoot to your specific wants and needs.
