Happiness isn't getting all you want, it's enjoying all you have.
You're engaged (woot woot), congratulations! Now it's time to start planning one of the best days of your life. By now I hope you've heard that the wedding photographer is one of the first people you should have on your dream team. Hopefully you're as much excited for the engagement photos as I'm sure I will be when the time comes but if you're a non believer, I'm here to convince you that you should definitely have them done.
After you've chosen your wedding date it's time to choose your photographer! I suggest that you hire the same photographer to shoot your engagement photos and wedding. This keeps the style of your photos consistent. Most photographers (including myself) include engagement photos in their wedding collections. If it's complimentary, why not? Having your photos taken by the same photographer also allows you to get comfortable. You know their shooting style and on the wedding day there won't be awkward posing and worrying about if you're doing it right. Candid photos are great on the wedding day and if you are already used to your photographer, you'll be able to let your guard down and that's where those candid photos are able to shine.
What am I going to use these photos for?
A great way to use your engagement photos is to add them to your save the date cards or even your wedding website. It allows you to make a mark as a couple and to showcase your style to your guests. I've even seen engagement photos displayed during a wedding reception.
These photos don't have to be traditional: maybe you met at Starbucks or your first date was at Fenway park. We can find a way to incorporate your memories and style into your photographs.
Are you getting married soon and are thinking about engagement photos? My collections include a complimentary engagement session. I love portrait sessions like these because it allows me the chance to get to know you and to also show you some of my basic posing techniques. After the session, you'll be so happy you hired me to capture your special day. To schedule your consultation, simply fill out the form below or email me directly at Fritzmean@gmail.com
