Why engagement photos are important
As a wedding photographer we cherish opportunities to get to know our couples better. The engagement session is the perfect time. When we shoot the engagement photos we get to know you in a photographic way. We learn your body mechanics. We learn your best features. We learn your habits and traits that make you YOU. We get to know your personalities. We get to understand you as a couple. Plus, the engagement photo session is low-key and super chill. No distractions. In that way, it’s quite a bit different than wedding photos. On wedding day there are lots of folks around, moving parts to the day, tons of interruptions and stress is never far away.
Engagement photos by a professional wedding photographer or not?
Many couples wonder if they should choose to hire a professional wedding photographer for their engagement photos. It’s a good question. The answer is most often driven by budget. If it’s in your budget, do it. Another reason folks may choose to not hire a professional wedding photographer to shoot their engagement photos is they have friend or relative with a new camera trying to grow their portfolio. GO out with them. They are family and could use the boost. But also, hire a professional. But what about saving money? Good question. All of our wedding photo packages include an engagement photo session.
