An engagement session is about SO much more than just the incredible photos you’ll get from your session. Here are 3 benefits of booking an engagement session with your wedding photographer…
1. Learn how you like to be photographed. Your wedding photographer may ask you, “How do you want/like to be photographed?” …and if you have never had a professional photo session before, you may not know how to answer that question. An engagement session is a great way to learn how you like to be photographed and how you don’t like to be photographed, and better prepare both you and your wedding photographer for the big day. If you realize that you don’t like how you look in those “serious"/relaxed smile” photos, let your photographer know and your photographer can take note of that for the wedding day. If you don’t like your teeth or smile, or maybe you feel cheesy or uncomfortable with certain direction during a photo session, let your wedding photographer know and it will better prepare them with extremely valuable information for your big day!
2. Get to know your wedding photographer and learn what to expect from them on your wedding day. An engagement session is such a great way to hang out with your wedding photographer, get to know each other, how they work, and will give you an idea of what to expect on the big day. If you’re nervous about the photography aspect of your wedding day, this may help to ease those nerves since you will know what to expect from your photographer from working with them on a photoshoot previously. Your photographer will value the time to get to know you as well, as this helps them to better personalize your photography to fit you!
3. You’ll have great photos to use for announcements, slideshows, items for your tables/décor and canvas displays for your wedding day.
