If you have had any doubts as to whether or not engagement photos are really necessary, you will definitely want to continue reading, as there are so many wonderful reasons as to why they are important:
- Take a break and be creative. You have a long road ahead of you. Planning a wedding is no easy feat, and you should still make room to enjoy your engagement. A photoshoot provides you with the perfect opportunity to let your hair down, take a break from all your wedding planning, and let your creativity shine. You both certainly deserve this, and you will certainly have fun within your engagement photoshoot.
- Fun and wedding planning. If you are worried about an engagement photoshoot taking away from your wedding planning, there is another way in which you can view an engagement session. It is actually great practice for your big day! You will get a feel for how your photographer captures photos, poses you, and what to expect. Not only will you get to know your photographer, but your photographer will get to know you. This will help them truly highlight your relationship and bond within your wedding photos when the time comes. You are, essentially, taking care of two tasks at once.
- The many uses. Your engagement photos are actually very useful. From announcing your engagement to being displayed on your wedding day, you will certainly have many different uses for your engagement photos. You can do so much more than just display them in your favorite frame. Consider festive “Save the Date” cards, images for friiends and family members to display within their homes, and even “Thank You” cards for after the big day has come and gone.
- Personalization. In addition, you can add some personalization and fun to your engagement photos with the use of props. Colored smoke, champagne glasses, instruments…the opportunities are truly endless! Also, you can capture your engagement photos at a location that holds meaning to you, such as where you had your first date or where the proposal took place.
If you had any doubt as to why engagement photos are a must, these tips are just a few reasons as to why you should consider them for your own engagement. After all, your love deserves to be beautifully showcased through lovely images.
