Why We Include Engagement Sessions

Engagement Sessions have become fairly standard practice as you and your partner make your way towards your wedding day. They can be a fun way to celebrate your love. They are also a very practical way to express who you are as a couple and receive images that can be used as you make your wedding website, send out your save-the-dates and invitations, and even display at your wedding and in your home. Often times, these sessions are booked individually before booking your wedding photographer. However, with us, we include an engagement session with every wedding day booking. Let us tell you why!

We want to get to know you

For starters, we believe that getting to know you before we shoot your wedding is so important. After all, it helps us better tell your story and capture who you are through your wedding photos. Plus, it’s just way more fun to be friends with our couples. When we do an engagement shoot with you, we get to photograph you in a more intimate setting where you aren’t surrounded by all your friends and family. This helps us see what poses you gravitate towards or which angles you prefer. This really helps the wedding day to go smoothly.

You get to know us and become comfortable in front of the camera

Not only is shooting an engagement session helpful for us to get to know you, but it also helps you to get to know us and feel more comfortable in front of the camera. Maybe you and your partner have never taken professional photos before.  In this case, you might feel a little uncomfortable kissing or being affectionate in front of the camera. Maybe you feel awkward and nervous in front of new people. Or maybe you just don’t know what to do with your hands.

During your engagement session, we can help ease that anxiety as we get to know you better. Plus, we’ve had years of experience posing couples and can help you both feel comfortable and look your best. We know how to be serious or funny if you need us to be to help you feel at ease, but either way we promise to be our authentic selves so that you feel comfortable with us being a part of your wedding day.

We want you to have the BEST experience with us!

Your engagement period is such a brief season of life, and it is part of the wedding process you don’t want to miss. We believe capturing photos through an engagement session is a great way to memorialize this time. Plus, who doesn’t want more photos with the love of their life? We love giving you images you can use for your wedding website, your invites, and even for your Instagram countdown. We do a little happy dance when you order your engagement session photos to display in your home. You can even display them at your wedding reception to give it that extra personal touch. By including engagement sessions in our wedding packages, we feel that we can offer you our best experience and celebrate you throughout your time with us.

However you choose to use to use your engagement session photos, we love shooting them and are so happy to offer them. We love how they give us the chance to build a relationship with you. We also love how you get to know us and feel comfortable in front the camera before your big day. Finally, we think engagement sessions are a great way to celebrate your story and capture your love story.
