I like to include engagement sessions in all of my wedding packages because they’re a great opportunity to hang out and get to know each other. They’re a chance for couples to see how I operate behind the camera and be prepared for their wedding day. For my engagement sessions, I let the couple pick a place that’s meaningful to them. Sometimes it’s the location of their first date, sometimes it’s just a pretty place. We head out to that location and just walk, talk, and shoot. I like to get to know the couple and how they are with each other and for them to learn a little about me. Wedding photography is a collaboration between the couple and myself, and there’s no better way to be prepared than doing a test run!
Occasionally I get contacted by a couple who already has a wedding photographer, or who is getting married out of town. That’s totally fine too! We can set up an engagement session and make some photos all the same.
