More and more wedding photographers are combining an engagement photo-shoot in their packages. If you do not get one … you should! An engagement session is a perfect addition to your soon-to-be beautiful wedding photo collection. It is a photographer's way of documenting one of your last moments together before officially becoming "husband and wife" and a great milestone to capture and treasure always.
Some couples even choose to include their engagement shots in their invitations, or with certain shots as a background to their wedding guestbook. It can really set your wedding apart! Now that you have decided to get an engagement session before your wedding, let us touch on a few points that are very important to ensure that you get the most out of your couples & engagement photography.
Location, location, location! It really is all about location. When choosing a location for your engagement session it is always important to make a personal choice that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Where you and your fiance first met? Is there a place you always go to hang out?
Do you both enjoy the same recreational activities (horseback riding, hiking, soccer, etc.)? When choosing a place and/or activities that fit both your lifestyle and your fiance, it will not only capture the photos you both love but tells a love story as well. It also adds a sense of affection you might not get when selecting a random park you've never seen or heard before.
