When I got married in the early 1990's I would have never thought of engagement photos, but I did not think of registering for my gift selection either! Goodness I remember my traditional Italian mother being upset that I wanted a black and white wedding and a slim fitting dress (mermaid)!! Times have definitely changed, for the best! And can someone tell my Italian aunt- Corelle is not fine china!! lol!
Why Engagement Photos!? Engagement sessions are a great idea and I’ll tell you why-
Get comfortable in front of the camera before your BIG DAY! Unless you are in front of a camera on a regular basis, chances are, having your photo taken can be slightly uncomfortable at first. Look at your engagement session as a ‘test run’ with your loved one. Have your photos taken without all of the pressure of getting perfect photos!
To establishing a relationship with the photographer, knowing their style, likes, and dislikes.
To showcase your personal style, to give a glimpse of the couple you have become, let people know about your pets, hobbies and favorite places.
And lastly why not send out a save a date that speaks volume, they are also romantic and FUN!
