Why You Should Do An Engagement Photo Session

Engagement photo Session Morton Arboretum

Congratulations on your engagement! This is such an exciting time in your life and it should be documented with an engagement photo session.

The engagement photo session is such a fun experience and a very important one, too. Most couples don’t have professional portraits taken together. This is the perfect opportunity to change that. You will have these photos to reminisce on anniversaries and any time you want to look back on your special day.

One of the first things couples do after they pick a date and venue is to find the photographer, since they tend to get booked up a year in advance. Click Here to read my article on how to pick the best wedding photographer for you!

St Charles Fall Engagement SessionOnce you have your wedding photographer picked out, you should do the engagement photo session with them as soon as possible. Some photographers include complimentary 1-2 hour shoots with certain wedding packages they offer.

This is a great way for you to get amazing photos while getting to know your photographer. You become comfortable with them, and they learn more about you as a couple, which will help them capture you and your groom through the best quality shots on your wedding day. Instead of dreading it, you’ll become more comfortable and enjoy yourself when on the day of your wedding.

You will have the best photos of the two of you to use for many different things. You can use them for the “save the date” cards that you send out to your wedding guests. They can also be used for wedding announcements such as newspaper flyers.

More couples these days are setting up wedding websites, so this is another perfect way to use your engagement photos. You can even use them to make gifts for your family.

Having your engagement photos done before the wedding will not only document such a grand moment in your life, it will also leave you with beautiful photos to hang up and use for upcoming wedding stuff.
