3 Reasons Why You Should Have An Engagement Session


Don’t you want to get to know the person you are going to be spending a majority of your wedding day with? I would. Think about it –you will be with your photographer more on your wedding day than your significant other. Crazy, huh? It’s the truth, though. Normally your photographer arrives during the getting ready phase when you and your partner haven’t seen each other yet and we stay all day and throughout the reception. With that being said, you want to make sure your photographer is someone you like style AND personality-wise. Even if you haven’t committed to booking a wedding package yet, having an engagement session first is also a good way to get a feel of the experience you’ll have with that photographer.


Yes, being in front of the camera can be awkward –especially if you’re not use to doing it. Maybe you don’t know where to look or what to do with your hands. A good photographer will definitely take care of all of that for you but having an engagement session before the wedding day gives you a chance to practice before the big day. You’ll learn how your photographer works as far as posing and prompts and have a better idea of what to expect when it comes time for the wedding. With the engagement session practice and getting to know your photographer, you’ll feel more natural and comfortable in front of the camera.


Obviously. The absolute BEST part about an engagement session –the photos. More than likely this is the first time you’re having professional photos taken and what better time than to celebrate your engagement? With getting engaged, you’re either already living together or buying a house soon and you’re going to need to decorate those walls with something! Engagement photos can also be used for your [save the dates] or even wedding invitations.
