Well, there are a lot of reasons but one of the most important is to:
TRY BEFORE YOU BUY
Choosing the right photographer for your wedding is so important! You want someone whose work you love and you get along with - you will spend a lot of time with your wedding photographer, before and on your actual wedding day! An engagement session also gives you an opportunity to iron out any issues before the big day.
Learn how to Pose
Even the most natural-looking lifestyle wedding photos are likely highly directed by the photographer. Posing can feel extremely awkward and unnatural, but having an engagement session will allow you to experiment with different ideas before the big day and get a better idea of how your wedding photos will look.
Getting Engaged is Milestone Worth Celebrating On Its Own
Getting engaged is such an important next step in a relationship but can be overshadowed by the big event. Engagement photos capture a special time in your life when you are madly in love and starting a new chapter in your life, one that should be documented. You’ll never regret having professional photographs to cherish and pass down to your family.
Have Loads of Fun
No pressure, no timelines! Hallelujah! Wedding days come with tight deadlines. Your big day might run behind and there just isn't a lot of extra time. There is also a lot of pressure on the Bride and Groom - this day will never happen again. At the engagement shoot, you can relax and have fun, actually enjoy having your photos taken together, just the two of you.
Capturing Memoriescreating art
You can tell I am passionate about getting to know my Bride and Groom before the big day. Wedding days go smoother when we have had the time together at an engagement session. And....my sessions are seriously so much fun!! (That's a pinky promise) They are also a great way to test out your Hair and Makeup artist!
I'd love to be a part of your journey. If you are seeking an engagement or a wedding photographer, I'd love to hear from you!
