3 Things Your Engagement Photographers want you to know!
Engagement Photographers want you to have awesome photos! Why? Because we want our customers to be 110% happy! We want our photos to be shown and bragged about! Here are some things engagement photographers want you to know prior to your session!
Time to Reconnect
Your Engagement Session is a time for you to reconnect with your partner. Pick out a spot that is important to you as a couple. This could be the place you got engaged or where you had your first date, or it could be somewhere you both like to spend time or where you go to enjoy a shared interest. Some locations to consider: hometowns, the college where you met, a favorite restaurant or bar, a museum, the zoo, a movie theater or even your own home. You will feel more comfortable in a place you are familiar with.
The advantage of seeing professional pics before saying “I do” is you can let your photographer know ahead of time if there are shots or angles you don’t care for, and you can point out shots you do like too. Have your hair and makeup trial done on the same day as your engagement session. This way, you get to see how it looks in photos and can let your stylists know if there’s anything you’d like to change. Once you see your engagement images and get excited about them, you’ll have more confidence in yourselves and in your photographer.
Pre Wedding Photos
Once you have your engagement images, there are many things you can do with them. They can be given as gifts to family (your parents and grandparents would especially love a copy), or you can make yourselves a small album or order a portrait to hang in your home. You can also send an engagement picture to your hometown newspaper to announce your marriage, which can sometimes be important to your parents. The shots can also be used in your wedding program, wedding website or save-the-dates.
I can’t wait to hear from you!
