Wedding day photos are important, but engagement photos are something special too.
The day that a couple gets engaged is one of the most romantic days of their lives, so why not get photos taken at this precious moment of your lives together? Engagement photos are a great way to create a lasting memory of how you felt at the moment of your engagement.
To get you prepared for your engagement photos, here are a few things your photographer wants you to know about the day.
1. Don’t Feel Intimidated
Everyone feels a little intimidated in front of the camera. That’s ok! It’s our job to make you feel comfortable and enjoy yourself. One thing your photographer wants you to know is that we want to capture candid moments and those that are totally unplanned!
As the client, your only job is to make memories! That is how we’re going to capture not only the best images but the real you and the love you have for each other. When you enjoy and forget about the camera, your genuine laughter and smiles will speak for themselves in the photos!
2. Relate to Each Other
The best photos are when you are just being yourselves together. This is not the time to pose perfectly or to worry about how you look. It’s the perfect time to be yourselves and relax just a bit. We will be snapping away to capture all your beautiful moments together.
Remember, these are engagement photographs so your significant other may not even realize the photographer is taking pictures. These pictures are candid and true to the moment.
3. Embrace Your Unique Love
Sometimes you might feel a little silly in front of your photographer. Don’t be afraid to let it out, though. In fact, it adds personality and uniqueness to your photos. Your photographer can capture just that, and it makes the viewer feel the love that you have for each other through your engagement photos.
4. Your Engagement Photos Are More Than Just Photos
Your engagement photos are not just photographs – they are your future wedding album. As your photographer, we know you want your photos to stand the test of time, to be as beautiful now as they are in 10 or 20 years!
We want to capture not just the images but the story of your love. All those cheeky little moments, those sweet hugs, goofy smiles, and twinkling eyes are the things that create beautiful memories that last a lifetime. We want you to be able to look back on the photos and remember that time in your life, remember how excited you were to be engaged. And we want your engagement session to be a piece of art that you can hang on your wall and remember the feeling you had when you were sharing your life with each other.
Your engagement photos capture a very short and fleeting time in your life where you are fiancés (not boyfriend/girlfriend and not yet husband/wife), so celebrating this short chapter of your life is so exciting!
5. Be Comfortable With Your Photographer
As your photographer, we can’t wait to meet you and get comfortable with you before the wedding day. We want you to feel confident that you are working with professionals and that you like them personally. The first step is to meet you in a coffee shop and chat for a little to get to know you and talk about the vision for your photos. We will also ask questions about what you love about each other, and we will try to incorporate that into the session.
That’s why we want you to get to know us beforehand so that you can relax and enjoy the process. We want to hear about your unique love story!
Preparation is everything when it comes to getting incredible engagement photos. Don’t let the nervousness of the day get you down. Remember that your photographer has done this before, so they are going to help you along the way. By following these things your photographer wants you to know, you’ll have beautiful photos you’d be proud of!
