He just pop the question!!! Yayyyy!!! YES, finally you can plan your wedding you always dreamed of!
You’ve chosen the venue. Now time for booking someone who can keep your memories alive forever. Time to chose a photographer! And here comes the questions “Do you consider engagement an session?”
You might be thinking: Is that something I should have? Do people still get those? Is it nowadays must or not?”- all these questions pop instantly into your head.
So here I will tell you why it is a good idea to have an engagement session before your wedding!
Number 1. Get used to the ‘stocker’ with lens!
Oh yes, your photographer will be almost everywhere. He/she turns in to paparazzi on your wedding day! For some that may be quite overwhelming. Having an engagement session allows you to get to know your photographer. And that’s probably the most important thing! Can you imagine your wedding day (when you are already fed up with nerves) and additional unnecessary stress caused by the presence of a photographer? It is worth getting used to the man/women following you with the camera step by step. Besides, as we all know – training makes perfect! This is important because only with the person you transmit on similar waves, you will pose for pictures without artificiality and awkwardness. Such an experience will surely be an ice breaker – because the most beautiful pictures are those on which you are simply yourself.
Number 2 – A secret photographers will not tell you! Use it as a “check skills!”
You’re directly in touch with what a human being is! How he/she works with you, how he/she talks! After such a meeting, you can more easily assess whether you are on the same page, whether you want this photographer or you can not stand it. If for some reason the photographer does not like you or you don’t like the photographer – you always have time to look for another. Because it’s better to be dissatisfied with photos from the engagement session than from wedding photos, right?
Number 3: Have some fun!
Yes, posing for photos can be fun! The professional will surely know how to create such an atmosphere. Rad and joy will be all you can see in the pictures.
Number 4: You are beautiful! – get confidence! Your photos will be stunning!
Especially seeing the final results of photography work or processed photos! Because in the photos everyone can look good and do not have to be a professional model! This effect will be ensured by appropriate shots, but also – let’s not hide – the proper processing of the photographic material.
Number 5: Don’t forget about Instagram! Make all girls jealous! LOL!
It is the best way to announce your engagement to tell everyone all at once on Instagram or Facebook!
Number 6: Nice photos can come handy!
And their use can be really versatile! You can use them as Save the date, use them to create the guest book (eg for the first page), set them in the frames on the tables (even with the table numbers), give away to the guests as a thank you. You don’t know what to give your parents as a thank you gift! You can use the photographs as a gift for parents. Instead of spending long hours thinking about making a present. All you need is nice frames!
The possibilities are really many, and the only condition that gives the chance for later use of the photos is to perform the session in advance.
Number 7: Take a brake from wedding planing!
In addition (strange that I write this at the end) the engagement session is above all a great opportunity to be together, stop for a moment in the chaos of wedding preparations and focus on your love here and now. In the beginning, you will be a little embarrassed by how to show love when someone ‘stares’ at you with a camera. With time, however, you will become a bit more courageous and open. This cooperation and trust, in return, will help me during your special day. Now it is a time to experiment, get a little crazy, bring props or do shoots in places only you both know. On the end at the wedding – it will be hard to focus on yourself, after all, it is a social party in which you will be surrounded by a group of your closest relatives, family, and friends. The engagement session is primarily for you! Having an engagement session can be one of the most fun parts of your wedding planning. Enjoy being engaged it goes by so fast!
