Are you rocking a brand new engagement ring and wondering if you should book an engagement session before your wedding? You might be like me and feel awkward in front of the camera or maybe you just don’t see why you need engagement photos. Today, I’m sharing the reasons why engagement sessions are so worth it and why I 100% recommend booking one with your wedding photographer.
You’ll get comfortable in front of the camera
For a lot of people, engagement photos are the first time they’ve had a professional photoshoot. During your engagement session you’ll learn to relax and feel more at ease while having your picture taken and you’ll feel like a pro when wedding day rolls around. Snuggling up with your partner while having a picture taken can take some getting used to – besides, practice makes perfect!
You’ll get to know your photographer
You’ll have a chance to slow down
You’ll have gorgeous photos to use prewedding
Once you have your engagement photos, there are so many things you can do with them. They can be given as gifts to your family, you can make a small album for your coffee table, or you can make prints for your home. Engagement photos are also commonly used on save the dates and on your wedding website. They can even be incorporated into your wedding day by using them in your guest book or as wedding decor.
