In a little over two months, Phill and Sarah will be man and wife. Looking ahead to that day, we had a great time prepping for wedding photos during their engagement session this week. As a wedding photographer, I look forward to engagement sessions for 3 main reasons. First, (and likely most important!) it is a great time to get to know my clients. It is always easier on the clients and the photographer to have spent fun, low-key time together before the wedding day. Among other things, Phill, Sarah and I chatted about our dogs (always a favorite subject of mine!) what their individual jobs look like (and Phill jokingly asked what I do for a living, bahaha), what different things are still coming together for the wedding day, etc. Getting to know each of my clients is really important to me – it allows me to serve them better (and with greater ease) on their wedding day. Secondly, I use the engagement session for teaching. During the session this week, we went over a few simple poses that I’ll use as a base on the wedding day. Being in front of a camera makes people nervous. My goal is to build the comfort level for clients. Take a look – Phill and Sarah did a really amazing job!
And oh! The light and trees in the background of this one! Love it!
Ok, third reason! A couple is only engaged once and for a short period of time! What a great time for a session – during the anticipation of a wedding. I love having the opportunity to capture this time so that couples can treasure and remember it for years to come.
