Newly engaged and thinking about whether an engagement session is for you?
This blog post will outline 5 reasons why they are beneficial and why you should book one!
Around 80% of couples say they are camera shy or have never gotten professional photos taken before.
By having an engagement session, it can allow you an opportunity to overcome any fears or uncertainty you may have especially before your wedding day.
Meeting your photographer ahead of your wedding day can be helpful, but being able to work with them and get to know them more on a personal level can be hugely beneficial. The more ease you feel with them, the more comfortable you will be in front of the camera, and the better the images will turn out.
First, if you end up not liking the photographer for some reason, it's not too late to find another for your special day. It's better to know sooner than later. It's also a great chance to share any concerns and questions with your photographer, such as if you prefer to be photographed on your right side.
The photos you receive can be used for your save-the-date cards, for your RSVP website, for your wedding day décor, to be printed and beautifully hung in your home, or let's be real, as your new phone lock screen or wallpaper. The possibilities are endless!
Beyond the photographer, an engagement session is a perfect time to have a make-up or hair trial. Talk to your florist, they may also have some sort of floral trial and be open to putting a bouquet together for you.
Lots of reasons why booking an engagement session is beneficial, it's all about being open. Remember to communicate with not only your partner but your photographer. Your photographer is the pro and should help with all your questions and concerns be able to make you feel comfortable no matter how uncomfortable and awkward you feel. I promise that it feels more awkward than it is or look.
