Have you ever gone to a wedding and seen beautiful images of the couple scattered about the room? Ever thought to yourself “Ooh, those are nice! That’d be fun to do at my wedding!” Enter: The engagement session. You’re knee-deep into wedding planning and you’re super busy. You couldn’t possibly imagine adding another thing onto your calendar. I’m going to tell you 3 reasons why you should absolutely add Engagement Photos onto your already busy schedule, and why it’s important (and also REALLY fun).
1. You’ll get to know your photographer (and they get to know you!)
One of the major reasons it’s important to have your engagement photos done is because you’ll get to know your photographer better! You want a photographer that you’re absolutely comfortable with and that you trust. An engagement session is a perfect time to learn more about them, and they get to learn more about you! After all, they will be with you the majority of your big day. Your photographer will get to see firsthand how you and your partner interact with each other, which in turn leads to better photos on your wedding day.
2. You get a chance to practice.
Ever hear the saying practice makes perfect? The case is the same here! Maybe the idea of an engagement session scares you. Have you thought “We are super awkward in front of the camera”? Take this opportunity to practice! It’s all about you and your significant other. It also gives you a chance to see what to expect on the actual day of your wedding. You’ll get to see what poses make you more comfortable, and get more comfortable with the idea of having a camera pointed at you. Your photographer will give you great tips for posing or how to relax and unwind to feel more at ease in front of the camera.
3. You get to have photos of you and your boo that aren’t selfies!
Chances are that up until this point you’ve never had professional photos done of the both of you together. Which means you mainly only have selfies. You can also incorporate these photos into your wedding! Have a wedding website? Upload your engagement photos. Save the dates? Done. Whatever you want to use them for! It also gives you photos of yourselves that aren’t in wedding day attire while also allowing you to get to imagine more clearly what your wedding photos will look like.
I hope that this post today has helped you understand why an engagement session is priceless! As a photographer, I’ve seen firsthand the profound impact it can have on your wedding day. If you’re looking for Vibrant + Colorful photographer than fill out the form below and lets chat!
