WHy are engagement photos important?
It’s a great opportunity for the couple to get to know and communicate with your photographers before the big day. You will spend 1-2 hours with your photographer and get comfortable being in front of the camera. This will ensure you are relaxed and can trust us to capture the real and emotive moments!
Where can we do our shoot?
We can do it anywhere that you like or feel comfortable. Whether it be at a park, beach or architectural site, the locations are endless, find a place that connects with your heart, and we will take care of the rest.
What should we wear?
You can wear anything as long as you feel comfortable and relax, smart casual is usually best! Avoid any logos or branding is another good rule of thumb.
When should we do our shoot?
Engagement sessions usually take about 1 hour. Lighting wise it’s best to stay away from the middle of the day – early morning or later in the afternoon is best. This is when the light is at its most beautiful (especially golden hour, during daylight savings!). You won’t be worried about squinty eyes or harsh shadows either!
Commemorating the Relationship: Engagement photography captures the beginning of a couple’s journey together. It’s an opportunity to document the love, excitement, and anticipation of a new chapter in their lives. These photos can serve as a beautiful reminder of this special time in their relationship, and can be cherished for years to come.
Building a Relationship with the Photographer: Engagement photos allow the couple to get to know their photographer and become comfortable in front of the camera. This is especially important if the photographer will also be shooting their wedding. By establishing a relationship with the photographer during the engagement shoot, the couple will be more relaxed and at ease on their wedding day, resulting in better photos.
Creating Save-the-Date Announcements: Engagement photos can be used to create beautiful save-the-date announcements. This is a great way to share the news of the engagement and give guests a glimpse of the couple’s style and personality.
Enhancing Wedding Decor: Engagement photos can also be used as part of the wedding decor. They can be displayed on a guest book table or used to create a photo wall or slideshow. This adds a personal touch to the wedding and allows guests to feel more connected to the couple.
