I love engagement sessions.
Here are a few reasons why.
A CHANCE TO GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER
By the time you have booked me as your wedding photographer, we will have already started building a friendship. I love finding out what’s truly important to you. I love getting to see how you interact with each other and watching the chemistry between you. It’s a great way for me to get to know more about you as well as give you a chance get to know me and see how I work.
BE COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA
One concern I hear from almost every engaged couple is they aren’t comfortable in front of the camera and hate having their photo taken.
I give subtle direction rather than posing you. This gives those dreamy, romantic portraits that we all love! It’s also a great time to see what you are comfortable with and love and what you don’t.
By the end of your session, you’ll feel like a pro! You’ll know which poses were your favourites and what poses you were most comfortable in. An engagement session also gives me the opportunity to see and ask if you are super affectionate or reserved and conservative. This information is so helpful for me on the wedding day!
BE LIKE A PRO ON YOUR WEDDING DAY
Now that you’ve had your engagement session and you’re familiar with me and my style , the wedding portrait time will go quicker and be more fun (more time back at the bar...which is important ! LOL !) . You’ll feel at ease during this part of the wedding day because you’ve already had a practice!
Have fun with it your complimentary engagement session. It's a great opportunity to get dressed up, go out afterwards and enjoy having some professional photos taken of you both together.
