Mental Preparation for Your Engagement Session

02

Feb

I am excited to share some tips on mental preparation for your engagement session. It’s normal to be a little nervous about your session. I always share that I still get nervous before having my photos taken – and I do this for a living!

As a photographer, I am a big fan of engagement sessions for a few reasons. First, they allow you to get comfortable in front of my camera. It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand my approach and how I pose. Timelines can be tight on wedding days, and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits – which is why I’ve found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when my couples experience an engagement session ahead of time.

Second, you can showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you (and even include pets!). While they’re great for save-the-dates, I’ve taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.
