Why is it an awesome idea to do an engagement photo session?

I could talk endlessly about why I love doing engagement photo sessions (sometimes called pre-wedding sessions).

The biggest reason? It's the opportunity to connect with my couples, to understand their love story and personalities, and then capture stunning photos that truly reflect who they are. I truly believe these sessions are a fantastic complement to your wedding photography, and here's why:

Engagement photo session

1. Practice makes perfect

Engagement photo sessions serve as valuable practice for posing and being photographed. Many couples feel nervous about having their photos taken, and it is completely normal, so an engagement shoot helps them become more comfortable and confident, resulting in better wedding day photos.

2. More intimate time with your partner is always a plus

Let’s face it, wedding planning is exhausting. Instead of being overwhelmed, let go of all the worries and give yourself the liberty to enjoy some quality time together. Having a pre-wedding session will allow you to unwind, relax, and even throw caution to the wind! Surrender to fun, laughter, running around, kissing one another, whatever feels right. It will be like a date and a way to nurture your relationship.

Not only will you have more photos of your love story, but you can also frame them in your home. Plus, they can serve as a perfect addition to your save-the-dates, signing boards, guest book, and whatever you like. The engaged period is special and should be savoured to the fullest!

4. Getting to know your photographer better

It provides an opportunity for us to get to know each other better. This connection can lead to more relaxed and natural photos on the wedding day as the couple feels more comfortable around the photographer.

This will play a major role in your big day.

It also allows me to understand the dynamics between the two of you, your personalities, and your unique love story. This insight enables me to capture moments and emotions that are authentic and meaningful to you.

Engagement photo sessions are stress-free and fun shoots that will leave you even more excited about celebrating your love. As you will already be relieved about having experience with photography, you won’t worry so much about it when the day comes.
