We hear lots of reasons why couples don’t have an Engagement Photography shoot. We’ve been engaged for ages… we’re saving for the wedding…we’ll have enough photos on the wedding day. Perhaps. But Engagement Photography is the start of the journey and there’s a few reasons why you should want an Engagement Shoot.
It’s a trial. A test run. Just as you would try on your dress or suit before your wedding day, have a hair trial at the hairdressers or spend some time at your venue or location, an Engagement shoot is your trial for your Photography. It’s a chance to experience the dynamic between you and your Photographer and to see how they work and the results they produce.
It’s your story. An engagement shoot is a beautiful way to capture part of your story. For some, it may be where your proposal took place. For others it may be the place where you met, or spend time together. It’s a chance to personalise your images to reflect who you are as a couple…your family, pets, you home.
It’s a celebration. It’s a beautiful part of a continuing story. Your engagement should be celebrated. It’s your commitment and the start of your journey, together.
It’s part of a collection. It’s the prequel. The ‘before we were married’ shots. They are part of a collection of images that you create throughout your lives and create memories.
It’s useful. Engagement Photography is useful! Many couples like to display images at the reception or create a beautiful guest register with their Engagement photographs. They can be shared with friends on social media and create amazing wedding invitations.
And…a big AND…you will feel more comfortable on your wedding day when you know what to expect and can be confident in the results. And enjoy the experience.
