Engagement photo sessions are just as important and memorable as wedding photos. The experience of engagement photos can be valuable and can increase the awesome-factor of your wedding photographs.
PRACTICE THOSE POSES
Work out those favorite poses! Have you ever looked at wedding photos and said to yourself "I have to try this pose!" You may even know a bride who wishes she had done a few things differently in her wedding photos. This is a great time to make note of any distractions, crazy faces you habitually make, or other tendencies that can make less than attractive photos.
Weddings are beautiful, they are full of emotion, celebration and an excited heightened sensory overload. It can be a whirlwind and many brides look back at photos to remember the thrill of the event. Use your engagement session to get to know your photographer, their style, what you like, and learn what to expect. Bonus for using the same photographer. The great news is, if you didn't know what you wanted until after you received the engagement portfolio you have the opportunity to explain exactly what your expectations are or find another elopement photographer.
CAPTURE EVERY MOMENT
There are stages of joy that lead up to a wedding. The hope of being proposed to or hearing her say yes. The eager anticipation that brides experience leading up to their great day. The elation the couple feels when celebrating their love and exchanging vows. All of these moments can be captured.
