Engagement session may seen to be an option that you really don’t want or need, but as a Baton Rouge Area Wedding Photographer, I find them extremely useful. When you’re looking through the offerings from your wedding photographer, a popular choice or add on is an engagement session. You may think it’s just an extra session, but it’s really so much more. So here are my top 3 reasons why I believe an engagement session is necessary.
- The absolute biggest reason why it’s important to have an engagement session is it gives you a chance to meet your wedding photographer. Meeting someone new can make some people anxious. This is the perfect time to get to know your wedding photographer and start to get comfortable with them. You’ll get to know how they work and their style. This is also the time to see if you mesh well with their personality.
- Alternatively, an engagement session is also the time for your photographer to get to know you. They can find out your style and know what you like. This help your photographer get a better idea of what will for you during your wedding portraits. Your wedding day will have lots of excitement and timelines. It’s better for your photographer to get to know you when there’s less of a time crunch.
- Another great reason for having an engagement session is you will have a great photo of the two of you for save the dates. What better way to have a more personal card to send out to announce your wedding date!
I hope this blog post helped you understand the importance of an engagement session. So ahead and make sure you have one with your wedding photographer and get some beautiful images with you and your partner.
