The Importance of an Engagement Session

One of my favorite aspects of wedding photography is actually pre-wedding day; it's the small window of time when a couple moves into the "fiancé" stage of life. This is a time that's so short in the scheme of your entire journey and what better way to freeze that time than with an engagement session! With all my full day wedding packages I offer a complimentary engagement session because of how important this time is for each couple. Occasionally I'll have some couples who are not interested in engagement photos, perhaps someone else gifted them a session prior or they don't think they need the photos. If you're in that boat, let me convince you otherwise! More so than documenting this incredibly special time in your life, consider the engagement photos to be a practice run for the wedding. Most people don't have professional photos taken every day (your iPhone selfies don't count), and you don't want your wedding day to be the first time you're in front of the camera. Why? Because honestly, most people freeze in front of a professional camera and it takes time to get comfortable with having your photo taken. The wedding day usually has such a small window for portrait photos and we don't want to take up that time getting to know each other and figuring out what poses you like best. We want you to get to portrait time on wedding day and feel so confident and relaxed because you've already done it before!


Still feeling nervous about doing an engagement session? Let these two love birds inspire you and give you a taste for how much fun we'll have together!
