Here you'll find inspo for all things wedding, planning, and timeless elegance, Enjoy!
Yay! You’re engaged. Next step, engagement photos.
Well, if you read my Wedding Registry blog post then I’m sure you’re on the way to planning the most amazing wedding! After you book your wedding photographer, aka me, then your next step is booking your engagement shoot. Some couples want to opt out of an engagement photos BUT as a photographer I highly recommend that you take that step and do the shoot.
First of all, your engagement shoot is most likely the first professional shoot you will have of your relationship. This solidifies your relationship with some beautiful and super fun photos!
Along with that great point, having an engagement shoot also gives you an opportunity to work with your photographer before your wedding day! This is so so underrated. It’s hard to know how important this is until it’s too late and you’ve missed the engagement shoot opportunity. Working with your photographer before your wedding day ensures that your wedding day goes by super smooth. Most couples aren’t professionals in front of the camera and they can feel quite awkward. It gets even worse when the person behind the camera is a complete stranger. If you have a photographer on your wedding day that you can truly call a friend, that helps you two be just so much more relaxed and that shows in your photos! BOOK THAT ENGAGEMENT SESSION if you love those super lovey, relaxed, and emotional photos!
Just in case those aren’t reasons enough, your engagement photos are PERFECT for your wedding save the dates, invitations, photos to display at your wedding, or during your reception slideshow. And just an FYI, if you can make it through a photoshoot together, you can make it through anything. It’s a fact, I looked it up, don’t double check it haha!
There are different TYPES of sessions?! I’m here to settle this confusion: YES!
First off, figure out what kind of couple you are. Are you a Downtown Abbey kind of Classy or a Motorcycle Sandy Beach type? Do you like to stay in and cuddle or go urban exploring? All of this can determine which type of session you can plan out with your photographer. A session that best portrays you as a couple and also helps you be comfortable while you’re at it. Remember, when you two are comfortable in front of the camera, it shows in your photos!
This is just an example for you gorgeous peeps. Whether you’re all about nature photos or wanna dive right into classy city pics, i’m all for it and I help you choose your outfits along the way as well. I’m loving the super glam and wild engagement sessions so if that sounds like something you want to do then LET’S WORK TOGETHER!!
Whatever your style, from sessions on your boat (classy or casual, winter or summer time lovin’) to photos on the highest rooftop we can find and dancing under twinkling lights, my goal is to make your engagement session memorable, timeless, and most of all fun.
PRO TIP: You can do whatever you want for your session; have a pool party, shoot in an arcade, have a cozy in home session. Get creative and let’s do this!
