Yes. You do. The end.
I wish I could just say that and everyone would believe me but thankfully, most people need a little more information before making decisions. I’ll do my best to explain why it’s a great idea to have an engagement session with ME!
1-It will be fun! I know that not everyone enjoys having their photograph taken, especially guys, but I promise we will make your engagement session fun! We always have guys say “that was more fun than I thought” or “I actually had fun” after we finish their session.
2-You can get all dressed up! If you don’t like to dress up, skip this one and wear whatever makes you feel good! If you do, this is a great opportunity to pamper yourself. Buy a new outfit. Get your hair done. Put on some fake eyelashes! Go crazy!
3-Practice makes perfect. This is true for almost all things. The engagement session is your time to practice getting comfortable in front of my camera. If you or your guy are uncomfortable in photos, this is all the more reason to do the engagement session and practice getting more comfortable because you will be photographed on your wedding day. A lot! Enjoying the engagement session and seeing how you guys look like rock stars in your photos will make you all the more confident for your wedding day portrait time. The more confident you feel, the better the photos will be!
4-Having a ton of beautiful photos to print, save on your phone, put on Instagram, hang in your house, etc. is never a bad thing. Especially because the engagement photos will be much more casual than your wedding day photos. If the only printed photos you had in your house were your wedding photos, people might think you were obsessed with your wedding. Which I would think is fine but other people might judge.
5-We can go somewhere that will have a totally different feel from your wedding. You may love to hike but you aren’t getting married on a trail beside a waterfall…we can take your engagement pictures there! You may absolutely love the Biltmore but you can’t get married there…we can take your engagement pictures there!
We include the engagement session with all of our packages because we understand how important it is to get to know our couples before the big day! You and I will both feel more comfortable working together if you aren’t wearing a robe and sticky bra the first time we meet!
