You are engaged... do you have the pictures taken?
Engagement Sessions have become one of my favorite things to photograph. I know we talked about this before but I continue to get the question "should we do engagement pictures?" I always say "YES!" Engagement pictures are the best way to get to know your wedding photographer, to learn how they work, what poses you like best, and as a bonus, you get gorgeous pictures to cherish.
Picking a wedding photographer is a hard task. You may love their pictures but are you going to love their personality, Are they going to get you your pictures in a timely manner, etc. The engagement session is a way for you to learn all these things. You probably have spoken on the phone with your wedding photographer and maybe even have met them in person but actually working with them before the wedding is something even better. As a wedding photographer, it is good for us as well. It helps us help you trust us, learn what you are comfortable with as far as poses go, and what type of pictures you like best. This helps us even more to take those amazing pictures on your wedding day! So if you are on the fence about having the engagement pictures taken, don't be. Do it, I promise you won't regret it and you will more than likely have fun doing it as well!
