5 Reasons Why Engagement Sessions are Important

BACK TO BLOG HOME

  1. This was such a great read, and this is def. a article for all clients to read if they are newly engaged.

    Beautiful pictures and great blog post! Besides the actual exchanging of vows, the photographs are by far my top priority. I “shopped around” for a photographer longer than I looked for my venue! As nervous as I am about the engagement session, I am really excited to have pictures of my fiance and I that will display our love and personal style. Like you mentioned, it will be great practice before the wedding. We are planning a NYE2016 wedding but currently plan to take our engagement pictures the first weekend in April–do you think it matters that the pictures will look “spring-like” but the ceremony will be in the dead of winter? Any suggestions on how to capture the feel of our NYE nuptials in April?

    • Great question!!! I love when couples take photos in different seasons than their actual wedding because you will then have different “looks” to your professional photos for your home or personal use!!! Great question!!!

    Good information.

    This was so helpful! I plan to basically have two engagement sessions. My wedding will be in Atlanta, but my fiance and I are both students in Richmond, VA and will not be able to take our pictures in Atlanta in enough time for our save the dates. So we are currently looking for a photographer in the VA area. I am really excited for us to take pictures as the few pictures we have are us looking so silly! lol.

    Thank you for these tips… they are right on time and right in line. So many people have advised me against engagement photos but I agree with you that they serve so many different purposes. And then to be able to use them at the wedding??! Loving the #withthisring series for sure.

    Great article!!!! I don’t think most brides think about a lot of these key reasons, until they are presented in front of you; honestly I am
    More excited about my session now then I was before, I booked it initially because I knew it’s what you’re “supposed” to do as a bride! But this article and the info my photographer gave me, brings it all together!!!

    I just got engaged a week ago so I’m bookmarking this for my first sit-down with my best friends (and bridesmaids to be!). Thanks for the ideas and inspiration. #BoothToBe #KissingBooth2k16 #FutureMrs #BlackLove #ISaidYes

    Hi Terri! I just got engaged a week ago so I’m bookmarking this for my first sit-down with my best friends (and bridesmaids to be!). Plus this gives me I have a sound justification when my fiance asks why an engagement shoot is a worthwhile investment. Boom! 🙂 #BoothToBe #KissingBooth2k16 #FutureMrs #BlackLove #ISaidYes

  21. Jamila Johnson says:

    Awesome post. My fiancé & I are super camera shy. Our engagement shoot allowed us to relax. We were able to bond with our photographer which resulted in great photos!

  22. Shantina Woods says:

    I love this post especially because I’m a planner I love doing things way in advance so it really made me feel or should I say eased the feeling of me jumping the gun about searching for photographers and wanting to have my engagement photos done this coming summer all though are date is set for 9/2/17. So again thank you for the encouragement of setting things in motion early so that one is not feeling rushed and encouraging for us to become comfortable and gain a rapport with the photographer we decide on

  23. Natalie Herard says:

    So glad iris manning referring me to this post. All of this information is definitely helpful. Some I just didn’t even think about! Thank you for sharing! These engagement photos are amazingly beautiful, u can see the love between each couple and it looks so natural. Hope mine turn out just as perfect!

  24. Laurie says:

    My husband and I used the same photographer for our engagement session as we did for our wedding. It was essential, as we got more comfortable with the photographer and in front of the camera. The pictures kept getting better and better the more relaxed we got. Thanks for sharing!

  25. These are simply gorgeous pictures.

  26. […] One of the perks of booking a wedding package with Terri is that it includes an engagement shoot.  A lot of people – especially men – don’t understand why engagement shoots are necessary.  Well, there are a lot of reasons, five of which Terri so eloquently outlines in her own blog post “5 Reasons Why Engagement Sessions are Important.” […]
