As you’ll see throughout this blog, I will give you three reasons why you NEED to do an engagement session! I LOVE being a couple’s photographer in Southern California because I get to capture couples in beautiful locations that are unique to them! This is also why I include a complimentary engagement session in my wedding packages!
REASON ONE : GETTING YOU AND YOUR PARTNER COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA
This is one of the top reasons why I always suggest my couples to do an engagement session. I want my couples to have an opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera before their big day! An engagement shoot it likely the first time you will take professional photos with your partner. As a Southern California wedding photographer, I prompt and direct my couples so that they can enjoy their time taking pictures! This also allows them to feel and look natural throughout their pictures.
REASON TWO : YOU’RE ABLE TO SEE IF YOU AND YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER ARE A GOOD FIT
I always suggest meeting your photographer before booking, whether through a phone call or meeting in person! Being able to do an engagement session allows you to see how the photographer works and see if you like their process while taking pictures. Every photographer is going to be different, but for me I like to be collaborative with my couples, give prompts to allow for movement, poses for sweet romantic shots, and play music to help ease any nerves!
REASON THREE : BEAUTIFUL PICTURES TO CAPTURE THE START OF YOUR LIFE TOGETHER
Maybe this one is OBVIOUS but your future self will thank you for getting professional photos done for this special time in your lives. Engagement pictures are just the start of your life together before becoming husband and wife. PLUS you can print them out, show them off and use them as décor for your wedding!
Have I convinced you yet?! I LOVE being able to meet my couples and have them get an idea of how I handle pictures by doing an engagement session! Lets recap, the first reason you NEED to do an engagement session is so that you and your partner can feel comfortable in front of the camera. The second reason is so that you can meet your photographer and see if they are a good fit. Lastly, so that you can get some beautiful photos that capture this time in your lives!
