7 Reasons Why You Should Have Engagement Photos

I love holding engagement sessions, and I think they’re super valuable for many reasons. For a lot of people, until they get to the stage of booking a wedding photographer, they’ve not really considered engagement photos.

I hope this post helps you consider and maybe even book an engagement session!

1. Invites/save the dates

Create something really unique with your invites or save the dates. Including professional photos of the two of you is not only a chance to show off to your guests, but also to create something unique and personal. 

2. A chance to reconnect

Use the time we spend together as a chance to reconnect with your partner. It sounds corny, but trust me you’ll come away feeling nostagic and more in love.

3. mark your engagement with another element of your story

Your wedding day is only a part of your story, why not add to that with something that marks your engagement. 

4. You don’t have to dress up!

On your wedding day you’ll probably be all dressed up, and that might add to the anxiety. For your engagement photos, you can take a more casual approach. Where what you feel comfy in, be yourself! That’ll help you with the next one.

5. Practice at relaxing in front of the camera

Having engagement photos gives you the perfect chance to warm up to the camera and start to feel a bit more relaxed around it. Then come your wedding day, you won’t feel so nervous.

6. Get to know your photographer

It’s a great opportunity for you to get to know your photographer! To work with them before the big day, gives them a chance to show you how great they are! You get to know each other, it makes you more connected. That’s going to make for number seven.

7. better wedding photos & less stress!

Because you’ve had your engagement photos you’ll be feeling less stressed on the day of the wedding. You know the photos will be amazing. A more relaxed you equals less stress on the day of your wedding AND as such, better wedding photos. Win win!
