Engagement Sessions. They're so important for many different reasons. Keep reading for our top reasons why engagement shoots matter and are so worth it!
1. The chance to get familiar with your wedding photographer.
You’ve seen and admired your wedding photographer's work. Now get a chance to know the person behind the photos. Having a little practice session to get to know each other better (you get to see how your photographer works and they get a chance to learn more about what exactly you like) will guarantee your photos turn out amazing!
2. Practice makes perfect.
Posing in front of a professional camera is not the norm for many of us. If you're not used to being in front of the camera, this is the perfect time for you to get familiar with posing and how to act "natural" in front of it.
3. You'll have nice, professional photos of you and your partner.
You can use these photos leading up to, during, and after the wedding. You can include these photos in your save the dates/invitation suites, as part of your wedding decor, and to have some nice non-wedding photos of you and your partner to hang around the house or post online.
4. A sneak peak at how your wedding photos will turn out.
It's no secret that wedding photography can be a big investment. Receiving your professional photos back from your photographer before the wedding is a great way to ease your mind by giving you a better idea of how your wedding photos will turn out.
5. Memories of your engagement.
The time you're engaged is very special. You and your partner have made a commitment to each other to move towards marriage. Capturing photos during this time make for great memories to look back on.
6. Make it a fun date.
Since getting professional photos taken isn't an everyday thing, bask in the moment and make your engagement session a fun date. Fully immerse yourself in the moment and enjoy the time together. You'll probably be hungry afterwards, so finish off the date by grabbing a bite to eat!
No matter the reason you chose to move ahead with booking your engagement session, we promise you won't regret it!

First things first, a first look is when a couple chooses to see one another before the ceremony.
Our stance on first looks: We don't have one!
If you would like to have a first look, by all means go for it! Some of the pros and cons we've heard from our couples are:
1. Helps with your wedding day timeline
2. Reduces anxiety
3. Allows you and your spouse time to soak in the moment more freely
1. Could reduce the amount of excitement in seeing one another for the first time
2. Run the risk of being seen by the guests before the ceremony
3. Some people feel like you are cheating
At the end of the day, we always advise our couples to do whatever makes them feel the most comfortable. Will you do a first look?
