the importance of an engagement session

Engagement sessions are a great opportunity to celebrate this unique phase of your lives. There’s a good chance that these are the first professional images you’ve had created of yourselves together. Engagement sessions are so important to not only the photographer, but you as a couple being in front of the camera. It gives me a chance to be able to see how you two interact with each other. It gives me a chance to see how you respond when I ask you to snuggle up, or get close. It allows me to figure out your comfort zones, and help create a comfortable environment for both of you – which will carry over to the wedding day as well!

These sessions are the perfect time for you to see how I work, to see how I direct my poses. It gives you a chance to see how I communicate so you can feel comfortable in front of my camera and get to know me. When my clients know and trust that my biggest goal is to capture them looking the best that they can in their photos, it allows everyone to relax and enjoy!

It’s just plain fun. Engagement photos are a great excuse to put aside the stressful part of planning a wedding and just enjoy one another and have some fun together. Plus you get to use the photos for save the date cards, guest books, and other pre-wedding items to make your day even more personal if you choose! Your engagement session can be as simple as a stroll through your favorite park or a romantic return to where he proposed – anything you can imagine to share the happiness of your personal love story.
