We just aren't sure...
Do we really need an engagement session? Do you suggest one? Why should we do one? I get different variations of the same question surrounding the necessity of an engagement session. I personally love engagement sessions for a few reasons.
Let's get comfortable. Comfortable with me and comfortable with being in front of my camera. It can be intimidating. Trust me. I have had my photos professionally done. I fully understand the nerves, the overthinking, the worrying about being awkward in front of the camera. But that is what these sessions are made for. You will realize how actually photogenic and good looking the both of you are (you think I say this with sarcasm but I actually get this response a lot after I deliver an engagement session), how incredibly fun I am ( I'd like to think so...haha) and how having your photos captured by me doesn't even feel like a photo session at all. With that all out of the way, you will look forward to your wedding day without all the nerves that surround the photo part of the day.
You just put a ring on it. Let's announce it in style. A lot of couples use the engagement session as an opportunity to get those stunner photos to announce their wedding to their friends and family. Save the dates? Engagement photos are perfect for that. An album that guests can sign at your wedding? Also perfect!
