In simple terms, they are photo shoots that you have with your loved one before your big wedding day.

Wedding planning can be a stressful process. There are so many decisions to make and wedding suppliers to choose from, it’s no wonder that some couples feel overwhelmed. It can also be difficult to find an engagement shoot photographer in your area, which is probably why some couples haven’t thought of one!

The truth is, you are making a smart move by choosing to book an engagement shoot. Not only will it help you get comfortable in front of the camera, but it also provides a great way for your photographer or videographer to get used to working with both you and your fiancé before next summer arrives!

 Reasons Why You Should Consider an Engagement Shoot

[/vc_custom_heading][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text uncode_shortcode_id=”819470″]

1. The engagement shoot will help you to get comfortable in front of the Camera

Most couples I meet tell me the same thing: “I’m not photogenic!” “He hates having his photo taken!”

I understand how these couples feel because I sometimes feel the same way about having my picture taken. To help you relax in front of the camera, it’s important that we establish trust, which eventually leads to comfort. As a photographer, I always keep in mind that my couples aren’t professional models – they’re real people who may not have been in front of a camera as much!

Get comfortable in front of the camera. An engagement shoot is a great way for you and your partner to get to know your photographer and how they work. Having engagement photos is a good time to get comfortable and natural in front of the camera. The truth is: The more time you spend with your photographer during this time, the more comfortable you will be on your wedding day.

The beauty of my documentary photography style is that couples become relaxed midway through a photo session, which allows them to share intimate moments as I remain in the background snapping away their romantic moments. Many times they don’t even notice I am there and I am taking photos.

2. You’ll get to know your photographer better—and vice versa.

Got some great news, though it might be tough to hear. You’ll probably spend more time with me than with anyone else on your wedding day. I’m the photographer, and I’ll be documenting the whole day from prep to after the first dance. An engagement shoot can help us get to know each other so that I am not some embarrassing stranger on your wedding day — you’ll at least know who I am!

I strongly believe that connecting with your photographer will result in more natural-feeling photographs. As a general principle in life, the more you connect with someone, the better you’ll feel about being yourself. As a photographer, I want you to let loose and be your weird, awesome self so your photos are as authentic as possible

3. You will receive lots of Great Images from your engagement shoot

Engagement photos or couple photos are not your average photo shoot. Your wedding day is a special occasion, so why stop at the photo? Why not make something even more special and gorgeous to cherish the memories?

Engagement photos are a great way to get lots of beautiful engagement photos that you can use for your Save the Dates (wedding invitation), announcements, decoration on your wedding day, or on social media.

You can use the photos to decorate your walls, whether they’re in the living room, kitchen or bedroom.

4. Engagement photoshoot will help you to understand posing

I have my own foundation posing Framework. I give my couple lots of directions that let them look the best and the most natural.

Engagement photos are used as a tool to help me create the best possible wedding photography.

They can enjoy the day knowing that I’ve already been able to teach them how to pose and how to look the most natural in front of the camera, so when it comes time for their true wedding day photos, they will be able to relax and enjoy themselves without the worry of posing for hundreds of pictures.
