You've seen the wedding blogs, the bridal magazines, the professional looking shots of your engaged friends laughing and kissing each other. It's called engagement photography; essentially it's just a chance for a professional photographer to capture two people in love and who want to share their love with the world (or just themselves).
More than that, it is an opportunity to work with your photographer for the first time - to see how I shoot and for me to get to know you better as a couple. If you haven't had a photographer move with in inches of you to take a photo, it can be intimidating at first. Its a good way for me to help you get more comfortable in front of the camera so there are no surprises on the big day.
These sessions can be as fun and elaborate as you would like to make them. At the end of the day I would like you not only to remember the day you had a photo shoot, but also that you had a great date (with a photographer that tagged along). These beautiful photographs have been used to create Save The Date cards, on wedding websites, on announcement, and even incorporated into wedding day decor pieces.
