This summer, we had the absolute pleasure of shooting engagement sessions for some beautiful couples.
Engagement sessions are included in most of our packages, and there are a couple major reasons for this.
1. It's a great opportunity for the couple and the photographers to get to know each other. Photographers follow the bride and groom through the better part of the wedding day. We're there for some intimate, touching and highly emotional moments. Having an opportunity to get to know each other a bit better before the big day is a great way to get the couple to feel a bit more comfortable in front of the lens and for us to get to find out about the couple's tastes and style to make sure things go smoothly on the wedding day.
2. It's a great opportunity for the couple to get a set of beautiful photos in a bit more of a relaxed, informal setting. These photos can not only be beautiful additions to your home's walls, but can be used on your save-the-date cards or in your wedding day guest book.
So... as a couple, how do you prepare? What should you expect and what should you wear?
Here are a few tips:
1- Choose outfits that fit your style
This seems like a no-brainer but I can affirm without hesitation that I would be more than tempted to hire a stylist and replace my entire wardrobe if I was headed to a photoshoot. We suggest, however, that you pick outfits that resemble you, that match your clothing style but also your lifestyle.These photos are going to last for decades to come and while fashion will change, people generally stay true to their style.
