My top reason for capturing engagement sessions is a simple one: you will want to remember this season of your relationship. I don’t view your wedding day as an end goal. Instead, I view your engagement and wedding day as moments and events that are all part of your journey together. Capturing your engagement session allows you to think through all of the places that are most meaningful to you. Where did you go on your first date? What is your favorite restaurant? Do you have a park where you love to jog or walk your dog together? Those places matter. They matter because they help to tell the story of your relationship, but they also matter because they are the perfect place for me to capture your engagement session!
Further, engagement sessions are sometimes one of the only chances we have to learn how to work together prior to your wedding day. You and your fiancé may feel completely comfortable in front of the camera; however, usually someone is always a little nervous. Your engagement session is the perfect time to get those nerves out of the way! We’ll walk through posing together; you will feel how natural you can be in front of my camera (no forced smiles here!); and we will all learn about each other’s personalities. All of this is key for us to experience prior to your wedding day because you want to feel as though a friend is photographing every moment rather than a stranger whom you feel you barely know.
