If you ask any photographer whether or not you should take engagement photos, their answer is going to be a resounding yes! But why? Well here are a few reasons why I, as an Arizona and SoCal based photographer believe you should take engagement photos…
1. Professional Engagement Photos
Oftentimes my couples have never been in front of a camera together before. More specifically, a professional camera. This is a perfect time to get photos taken of the two of you in a special setting. Not to toot my own horn, but I’m a good time. I hear from not just brides to be, but also the men that they had a great time and it wasn’t a hassle! Taking professional engagement photos is the perfect time to celebrate and capture this chapter of your love story.
2. Test Out A Photographer Prior To Your Wedding Day
If you don’t already have your wedding photographer booked this is the perfect time to meet and see if their shooting style and personality jives with yours. If you do already have your wedding photographer booked then perfect, I love shooting with my clients before their big day so that they can see how I guide and direct them the entire time so that on their wedding day when it comes to photos they feel at ease the entire time! Also, I include engagement sessions in all of my wedding packages, so this is fun to get together and chat more about your day.
3. Use Engagement Photos In Save The Dates and Invitations
Another reason I encourage everyone to take engagement photos is so that you can display these photos at your wedding! Trust me, your guests are going to love seeing these photos. Also, these photos will be perfect to send out on your save the dates and invitations!
