Should we have an engagement session?
I highly suggest having an engagement session. My husband and I didn’t have one and the only pictures we have together are the ones from our wedding! It’s a rare event when we have a our picture taken together. The session allows a for a time for us to get to know each other before the wedding and for you to feel comfortable in front of the camera. It’s also a great opportunity to have personalized pictures taken by going to memorable locations or using meaningful props. Then you’ll have great pictures to create a photo guest book with, save the dates, newspaper announcement, or to put on display at your wedding.
What does the session include?
The session will mostly likely be a part of your wedding package. But it includes a 90 minute session with as many outfits and locations as we can cram in, a CD of all the finished prints, and a personalized slideshow of your session you can send out to family and friends. Then the sky’s the limit as to what you can do with those pictures like the ideas I mentioned above.
What should we wear?
Think magazine. You want to be the best version of you and there is no such thing as too much for a shoot. Cute, fun, flirty, handsome, sassy! This may be your only professional shoot you have together so make the most of it! Having 2 or 3 outfit changes is a good idea. It’s good to have options if we’re going to different locations.
