So now I’ve got the new blog this means lots more posts for you all to read 🙂
This week I thought I’d write about why I include an engagement photography session in all of my wedding photography packages. When you look for a wedding photographer, you generally just get the professional photographer with you guys all day on your wedding day for photos. I love weddings and I love doing engagement sessions; I include them in my wedding packages because its my way of getting to know my brides and grooms – I can’t just turn up to a wedding to photograph it, I need to understand what the bride and groom are happy with and what there not. An engagement session helps me to understand them and how they are as a couple and it also gives couples an opportunity to understand how I work and get used to me before the big day.
A wedding day is one of the pretty important days of your life so having an engagement session helps you to just be that bit more relaxed on your wedding day as you’ve already had photos taken prior to your big day.
Not only do I include engagement photography sessions for us all to help get to know each other but they help kids relax a lot more on the wedding day – because no child wants to smile for a stranger! Would you? Nope, exactly.
When couples have children, I like to meet them as soon as possible! The engagement session usually then gets split, half engagement and half family photography session; this way the children get to know who I am, what I’m doing and that I’ll be the one taking the photos on mummy and daddy wedding day. This helps them know who I am, this helps me know how to be with them and this helps you the most – because you won’t be having children crying or not wanting to smile.
So there you have it, thats why I include engagement photography sessions with all my wedding photography packages
See you next week,
