Simple – the more comfortable you are in front of the camera and around a photographer, the better! Engagement photography is an opportunity to capture some relaxed portraits of you and your fiance before the hectic wedding day. This e-session is almost like a date with a paparazzi.
Additionally, you can ask your engagement / wedding photographer to create cool “save the date” cards, invitations, or gues books. The possibilities are virtually endless! I have seen some people use the engagement pictures for center pieces. The following images below is a quick sample from our past engagement photography session then you can brain storm to something every more personable!
The reasons that engagement photographs are important vary for each of us. In my personal opinion, even as a photographer, I would love as many photos of my life as possible to record all the fond moments and hilarious outtakes that make life worthwhile. In a case of a wedding, why not professionally record a fun moment with your significant other?! Compared to a wedding, you two can dress up as wacky, colorful, creative, and comfortable as your heart’s desire. Do what you two feel like that captures your true personalities onto these engagement photographs and share them with your loved ones! In the end after everything is said and done, all you will have left to reminisce are the engagement and wedding photographs from those glorious milestones, so why not have these important chapters recorded professionally and creatively?
