Spring is here and if you are having a fall wedding this year and have not already scheduled your photographer for engagement photos this is for you! Below you will find reasons on why you should hire your photographer for your engagement photos and some fun spots around St. Louis for them to be taken at.
Getting engagement photos done with your photographer will make you feel more relaxed for your wedding day. Why is that? The reason for this is because most people do not like to be in front of the camera and the more time you spend in front of the camera, the more it will make you feel comfortable. It’s the old concept of “Practice Makes Perfect”. It will also allow you try out poses in advance, so on your wedding day you know what you’re comfortable doing and what you’re not comfortable doing. For your wedding day, you both will be naturals and already know what poses work for you. This will also help your photographer too, to get to know you guys, your personalities, your expectations, and of course poses that will work well for you guys. It is truly the best of both worlds if you decide to get your engagement photos done!
If you did not hire a Wedding Coordinator, your photographer will be the person you are speaking with your entire wedding day. You want to find a photographer that works well with you, and this will also help if you do an engagement session to make sure you all get along. If you and your groom are not having fun getting your photos taken with your photographer, you may need to consider finding someone else!
Save the Dates
Another reason to get your photos taken are for your save the dates! Why not get all dressed up and have some fun before the wedding with taking some engagement photos with your wedding photographer. It is important to get these taken so you can have some professional prints done for them! Your save the dates should be sent out four to six months before your wedding date. Your photographer will send you a few favorites immediately, so you can get your save the dates ready.
St. Louis Spots
A lot of couples do not know where to get their engagement photos done. It is very important to find a spot that you both love and relates to you as a couple. First think about where you first met or where you both grew up. If nothing comes to mind here are some hot spots in St. Louis: Laclede’s Landing, Forest Park + Lafayette Square, and Busch Wildlife.
