We think engagement shoots are SUCH an amazing time.

Why? Well, for a few reasons!

First, it gets couples comfortable in front of a camera.

While some people may not find this to be a big deal, a lot of people carry a bit of anxiety when it comes to that.

Second, it can incorporate something that you may not have access to on the wedding day.

For instance, you may like the fall leaves but are not considering getting married in the fall- an engagement shoot is a perfect way to capture that! Or, maybe you love baseball but aren’t getting married in the stadium….. sometimes you rent out the stadium for engagement photos!!

Lastly, we love to start to build the relationship with our couples.

Listen- we are going to be spending a LOT (and we mean a LOT) of time with you on your day… 8+ hours. We love the time during our shoots because we get a feel for our couples and we get to determine how to shoot the couple best. This helps us with the most flattering and easiest poses to make you feel awesome on your big day!

Adding an engagement shoot is completely your choice- some people opt not to do it.

We think it’s a great time to get to know your photographer and to get some really memorable shots of a couple before they are ever married. These photos can be used for a bunch of different things, including save-the-dates, bridal shower announcements, and even books to be signed at the wedding reception. Engagement shoots are well worth the hype!
