You are considering whether an engagement photoshoot is worth your time and what you pay for. It’s nice if it is already included in the package. But if it is not, you need some reasons to justify the investment. With this article, I will give you more in-depth about what an engagement photoshoot can give you.
An engagement photoshoot is your first photo trial.
How will you feel on the wedding day to have your photos taken? Chances are you will feel nervous, stiff, or shy to be in front of the camera for the first time. An engagement session can ease the nerve, get you comfortable with the big camera. Then, you won’t be aware of it on the wedding day, and it is a good thing.
It helps you understand your photographer’s working style.
This works only when your wedding photographer and engagement photographer are the same. Every photographer has a different style: directions, poses, etc. It is an advantage to understand the photographer before the wedding. On the engagement session, you have plenty of time to find out what works for you, to give your photographer feedback. Your photographer has a chance to know what you like and what you don’t. This way, everything will be much easier on the wedding day.
It records one of the best times of your life.
You don’t have many things to worry about because you have time to prepare. You are excited and look excited. This will definitely show in your photos. On your wedding day, things might get chaotic and you won’t have the same chance to experience such excitement.
Prints from an engagement session can be use for many things.
Don’t forget the photos for the invitations, guest book, website, canvas, decor, etc. Make your friends jealous of your brand new photo collection.
We know an engagement session is an investment that can affect your budget. Personally, for us, the main reason we did our engagement session is that we wanted to make our wedding day as easy and comfortable as possible. That is our most important day. We want to be well-prepared, have fun, and enjoy our day.
If you decide an engagement session is a good choice for you, it would be fun to prepare what to bring for your session together.
