Why Have an Engagement Session


The engagement season is such an important time in anyone’s life! Love is in the air and excitement for the future is abundant. You’re probably in all the feels and are wondering how to keep that feeling forever. Why not capture it? If you’re still on the fence about whether or not you’d like to have an engagement photoshoot session, we’ve created a list of three reasons why you should!

One on One Time

If you’re engaged, it’s safe to assume that you’re on your way to the altar. The engagement photoshoot session is a great way to get to know a photographer. You’ll not only get to know their personality and how well you all work together, but you’ll also get a chance to see their photo capturing abilities. Once you receive that final product, you can then decide if they are someone you’ll want to book for the actual big day walking down the aisle. While emotions, nerves, and excitement can run high on your wedding day, engagement sessions allow for one-on-one time with no distractions to capture you both at your best. It’s a monumental day, so why not make sure you’re comfortable with at least one of your vendors?!


Content For Wedding Stationery

As you begin wedding planning, you’ll come to realize how important stationery is. That includes your save the dates, wedding invitations, or really anything you’ll be printing out that has to do with your wedding. We’ve found that a way to personalize them is by adding pictures of you and your fiance. Having those engagement pictures on deck and ready to be applied to your stationery will make creating the stationary that much easier!


Pictures For Your Home

Last but not least, engagement pictures are a great excuse to update pictures around your house. Gone are the days of displaying selfies in picture frames. Engagement pictures create a more cohesive look to your home and show that you are now one unit. Plus, who says you have to wait months… years (depending on how long your engagement will be) to update the pictures in your house to your wedding ones. The engagement photos will take care of that!


Getting that one on one time with your photographer, having content for stationary and your home are just a select few of the reasons to have an engagement photoshoot session. We suggest getting your photoshoot done soon after your engagement session to capture the full emotions. Good luck and CONGRATULATIONS!
