7 Good Reasons to Get Engagement Photos

When you’re in the throes of planning a wedding, adding an engagement photo session can feel like nothing more than another expense. But there are so many benefits to having a "practice shoot" before the big day. . Here are 7 Good Reasons to Get Engagement Photos;

1. Feel More Comfortable in Front of the Camera. Many people are uncomfortable in front of the camera. When I get to spend time with my couples, they know what to expect, and how I work with them, and with that little bit of anxiety eased, they can be fully present for their wedding day and forget I'm there. . 2. You’ll Learn Your Angles and How to Pose. Posing can feel extremely awkward, but having an engagement session will allow you to experiment with different ideas before the big day . 3. Being Engaged Is A Milestone Worth Celebrating On Its Own. The proposal and engagement period are an important next step in your relationship, but they get overshadowed by the big event . 4. You’ll Gain Beautiful Photos to Use in Your Wedding Details. A photo save-the-date card is practically standard these days, blow up your favourite photos to display at your reception, or create a custom guest book with the images . 5. You'll Build A Relationship with Your Photographer. Build trust and friendship, so when the photographer walks into the getting-ready suite the morning of the wedding, it's like greeting an old friend instead of meeting a stranger . 6. You Can Test Out Different Photographers. Choosing your photographer is a major investment. If you’re having a hard time choosing, consider booking a stand-alone engagement session first. It’s one thing to appreciate someone’s portfolio, but you want to make sure that the photographer captures you and your fiancé just as well . 7. Scout Out Some Great Spots. Carry out your engagement session at similar times of the day when doing your engagement session so you can see the light fall on the location you chose. Think about the places that have been part of your relationship: where the two of you first met, the location of your first date, and where you or your partner proposed, consider incorporating this location into your engagement session. Incorporate your hobbies, and favourite car, and even bring your favourite animal. . . . . w. i. f. t. +61 (0) 417 379 715 e.
