In the blog post I want to talk about engagement photoshoot , I published a few weeks ago: “How to find the wedding photographer” I explained that all of my wedding photography packages come with a Free Engagement Session and I mentioned it is very important for me to provide an opportunity for the couple and myself to get to know one another before the wedding date.
Even though I already talked about the engagement photography sessions, I decided to dedicate one whole blog post to this subject.
Photography is one of the essential elements to consider when planning a wedding and technically, your photographer will lead your wedding day (of course with the help of a wedding planner, if you decide to have one). Nothing is going to take place without making sure that your photographer is present in the room and ready to document it.
Please read. “What do Wedding Photographers do?”
Your wedding photos are the memories you will have when the big day passes, and only images of the most memorable moments remain. You will have only one chance to do that, so an engagement photoshoot might be an excellent opportunity to make you prepared for your wedding photography in Chicago. Look at it as a ‘rehearsal’ wedding photoshoot so you can act like a pro on your grand day!
Here is why having an engagement session is a good idea to consider:
It is important to know the photographer’s approach to managing the session. You get to see how she works with you. It will allow you to connect with your wedding photographer to feel more comfortable and relaxed. An engagement photoshoot is a great way to break the ice with your wedding photographer and get to know each other better.
Especially if you are a shy couple or are not used to being the center of attention, It will help you gain experience for your wedding day. You will gain confidence which will be reflected in the final wedding photos that will be more natural and candid.
Even though on my Instagram bio I stated: “My ideal clients are those who don’t believe their faces have a good side and a bad side!” I, just like any professional wedding photographer, should instruct people how to pose in front of my camera. As a wedding photographer in Chicago, other than being able to suggest the best engagement photo location, I can also recognize which are the couple’s more flattering gestures or better poses. The chance to guide them through that at their engagement session will allow them to know exactly what to do on their big day. Here is a posing guide I put together that may help you.
If you decide to design a website for your wedding day, you need to have beautiful, professional engagement photos. Right?
You can also, use the images for your invitation and save-the-date cards.
How about your guest book/gift table on your wedding day? You would absolutely need some images to beautifully decorate your table on your wedding day.
Choose the best photo engagement location and make it an enjoyable experience! After all, the point is to have fun and make a memory of your romance.
In addition to these reasons to book an engagement photo shoot, the most important thing is to have a wonderful time and put aside any possible fears and complexes you had before you started.
