Engagement photos have become a trend. Before I got engaged myself, I thought they were a bit overrated and cheesy. And then I got engaged, and guess what? We got ourselves some engagement photos. And let me tell you, it was the best decision ever! I mean think about it… when do you ever get beautifully photographed, professional pictures of you and the ones you love? The answer is never. It never happens unless there’s an occasion, like a wedding, that forces it to happen. The problem I have with wedding photos is that you now have 500 pictures of you and your husband in a fancy wedding dress and a suit. That’s great and all, but wouldn’t it be nice to have professional pictures of you and your husband looking a bit more casual? It looks more “real”, more authentic. It’s also a really fun experience!
So, why else should you get engagement photos?
It’s Good Practice
Odds are, you and your partner aren’t fashion models for a living, so being in front of the camera doesn’t come naturally to you. The good thing about engagement photos is it allows you to become a bit more comfortable in front of the camera. Because let’s face it, the camera will be in your face for 10 hours on your wedding day. By having engagement photos done, you’ll learn how to relax, feel at ease and even look less tense and awkward in your real wedding photos.
Get To Know Your Photographer
Most of the time, your wedding photographer will offer a package that includes an engagement photo session. This is a great perk because it allows you to meet your wedding photographer and spend some quality time with them before the big day. They’ll be able to see how you and your fiancé interact with each other and use that information to help them on the wedding day.
You’ll Have Gorgeous Photos
This last reason is quite self-explanatory. You will have absolutely gorgeous photos of you and your fiancé, and in our case, our puppies too! You can get these photos printed and framed, and you can also use them for your “Save the Dates.” You’ll will be able to look back on these pictures and remember that very special time in your life. Priceless!
We had such a great time during our engagement photo session. Although it did cost some money, it was totally worth it to us. See below for some of our pictures!
