Why I Include Engagement Sessions With Wedding Coverage

Are you recently engaged? know someone who is? just curious? or have a feeling it’s going to happen ANY DAY NOW, eek! either way, i’m glad you’re here. a lot of people ask me what the pros/cons are to doing engagement sessions, some people don’t want to for various reasons, but i include in my wedding experience for SEVERAL reasons…

i believe the engagement session has a HUGE impact on how the wedding day portraits flow. when my couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images! i get to know my couples at the engagement session so that at the wedding i’m not some stranger they’re expected to feel relaxed and comfortable around while i’m guiding them through poses. it helps them warm up to the camera so that they are ready to rock and roll on the wedding day! by the time the wedding day arrives, my clients feel more like friends and that creates a safe and relaxed environment for photography! a couple should connect with their photographer, trust their photographer, and be EXCITED about the whole process with them! my goal is to not only capture memories for my clients, it’s to create an experience that they will never forget.

i hope this helps convince you! enjoy this season of engagement and get excited about your BIG DAY because it’s going to be fabulous! plan and prepare but always remember that at the end of the day, you’re marrying the love of your life and that’s all that really matters. congratulations on your engagement, i’d love to hear form you if you have any more questions about engagement sessions or if you’re interested in my wedding experience!!! be sure to visit the BLOG to view my most recent weddings and engagements!
