If you’re “on the fence” about taking engagement photos, they’re definitely a wonderful idea! Why? Engagement photo sessions allow you a few luxuries that you just can’t get on a wedding day. First, you’re able to get comfortable with your photographer at your engagement session. It’s a perfect way to get to know each other a little better, and understand your photographer’s process and way that they shoot. I always talk to my couples a lot at the sessions, and really enjoy our time together building rapport and understanding styles. I love to know how my couples like to be photographed, what they enjoy, and a little of “what makes them tick”.

Engagement Photos: celebrating a brief moment in time

Another great reason to have engagement photos is that you get images of you as a couple where you are not dressed in your “wedding gear”. Every one of my engagement couples walks away with images that they can display proudly in their home from a special time in their lives. They often choose locations that are important to them, such as where they were engaged, where they like to spend their time, or a favorite hometown park.  In addition, after the session is over, I get to know their favorite images and understand even better how they’d like to be photographed in their wedding day.

Choosing the perfect timing for engagement photos

Engagement photo sessions take place typically about six months prior to the wedding date if you are interested in using them for Save The Dates. If not, then I always recommend choosing your favorite season for engagement pictures. Some couples will choose the same season as their wedding, and others will choose the opposite season. Since scheduling has more flexibility, you have lots of options!
