When you realize you’ve found someone to share the rest of your life with, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
We’d however say, don’t rush it. Your engagement is a special time in your life, beautiful and unique. Another lovely milestone to celebrate. One thing many couples forget is that your engagement is often quite short. They jump right into wedding planning and sometimes forget to celebrate.
But the truth is that you will only get engaged once in your relationship. Isn’t that worth celebrating? Your engagement sessions is a perfect time to start or continue that celebration. You’ll be able to get away from your wedding planning. Even if it’s just for a day. At the session we’ll understand that this is a special time for you both. So, we will capture you without intruding on your moments together too many times. We’ll document the feelings you have for each other as they come to the forefront.
You can have a stress-free fun time where you share your stories about meeting for the first time and how you started dating. We will be delighted to enjoy your memories with you as we make new ones. To witness your affection as we tell the world that you are now officially together and are planning a happily ever after.
Your engagement session also gives you a chance to get to know us. You’ll get a feel of how we do what we do and the way we’ll be with you on your wedding day. You can also learn your best poses and other important details. So do not let an opportunity like this slip away. The photos that you get from your engagement session will be useful in so many ways. You can use them for your wedding décor, wedding website or even your desk at work. They’ll be the first official photos you’ll be getting in a while. So, feel free to use them as much as you want. They could also accompany your engagement announcement on social media if you haven’t done that already.
As we capture you for your engagement session, we’ll do our best to make sure that this day is one of your treasured memories. Often, we advise that couples book a special dinner or night out at a nearby location for after the shoot. That way you can take the romance you have built from doing the photoshoot and stretch it out for much longer. There’s no need to rush right back into your wedding planning with all the stresses involved. How about make an entire day out of your break from it? A lovely candlelit dinner or even a night out enjoying your favourite beers could be a fitting end to this special day. Don’t worry we won’t follow you on this one. We’d have already taken the pictures we need to preserve this special moment. This is meant for just the two of you.
So how do you prepare for outstanding engagement photography? Come ready to showcase your love. This is an opportunity for you to practice for your wedding day too. You can come with two great outfits for the shoot. You don’t want to bring too many clothes and end up spending too much time changing. Just two outfits that showcase your personalities is great. We want to capture you like we would at your everyday lives.
One of the outfits can be formal while the other should be informal. That way, they’ll create a balance. Couples are also often confused about whether they should match for their engagement session. The answer is that a level of matching is good but don’t overdo it. Matching a little bit presents you both as united which is really great for your engagement photos. You also however what to keep your individualities intact while you do the mix and match. These and many more will be the things on our minds as we capture your engagement session. We want only the very best for you.
