A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post on why couples should take engagement photos. Many photographers including myself a offer complimentary engagement session when booking them as their wedding photographer. An engagement session is a chance to work with your photographer, they’ll teach you how to pose so that you’ll be comfortable on the wedding day. Engagement photos can be used on your save the date cards and on your wedding website. The possibilities are endless. So now that you've decided to take engagement photos I want to give you three fantastic reasons on how to get ready for engagement photos
1. Relax! I suggest maybe starting off the day by getting a massage or getting your nails done. It is important to walk into your session stress free so fill your day with something you enjoy doing. Another great way to relax is by making sure that you leave the house way in advance keeping in mind your cities rush hour. For sessions taking place outside around sunset, you and your photographer are at the mercy of the sun.
2. Though I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest (which is mostly love). I always advise couples to check out engagement sessions. This will give an idea of basic posing techniques and outfit inspirations.
3. Hair and makeup! I know a couple of great hair and makeup artists in Massachusetts, leave it to the pros to get you glam’d up on your engagement session day. Often times as women, we envision the makeup look that we would like to have but most of us aren’t professionals so why stress yourself out? I work with great hair & makeup artists and can give a list of recommendations!
I hope this list helped you get ready for you engagement session. Have a few tips to add and would like to be featured on Fritzmean Blog? Leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you.
