Why book an engagement session?

Why schedule an engagement session?

As a wedding photographer some of my favorite shoots are engagement sessions. And that is why engagement sessions come with each of my wedding packages. In the past a few of my clients have chosen to forgo the engagement session due to the fact they are planning there wedding from out of town. However, I strongly suggest considering planning a trip for you engagement session, and here is why.


Building your relationship with your photographer.

E- sessions are not only great for save-the-dates, prints and albums, but they are just another reason to build establish a good relationship with your photographer. During your engagement session with me, we will not only take lots of photos, but we will also get a chance to know each other better, and see how well we work together. Also very important, you will become more comfortable in front to the camera and learn out to “pose“ in away that is natural and reflects each of your personalities. My goal as your wedding photographer is not only to deliver photos you will love, but it’s also to strengthen our relationship. That way when the wedding day comes we are comfortable with each other and you will completely trust me to document the most important day of your life as a married couple.


For these reasons I strongly encourage all of my engaged couples to take advantage of the engagement photos sessions that come in my wedding packages. It is true that magnificent photos are a product of an engagement session, but my objective is to build up our relationship so that you view me as a friend, as well as teach you how to pose. If gorgeous portraits are high on your priority list, doing an engagement session with me is the best way way to guarantee amazing photos on your wedding day that you will cherish forever.
