Why Are Engagement Photo Shoots Important?

Why is engagement photography essential to have? You’re thinking it, every couple has thought it at some point, and that’s probably why you’re here. The truth is that most couples are engaged for only a short time. Engagement is often a brief, beautiful, and meaningful time. Still, with so many wedding planning activities, it can be easy to forget to take some time to enjoy the feeling.

Engagement pictures are a big deal and you need them for a good reason. It can be even seen as something that enhances your relationship. I’ll explain. So grab a cup of coffee, take a seat and let’s talk about why engagement photography is important to have.

You Need Quality Time Together as A Couple

This is one of the crucial reasons you need to take time out to get your engagement photography done. With all the wedding planning that you’re doing, can you remember the last time you and your partner had alone time together? And no, we do not mean the few hours at night where you both tiredly fall into bed and cuddle for a few seconds before you sleep off. That doesn’t count!

You need time in the day where you can be playful and just bask in each other. Your engagement couple session can be that time. It’s like a hot date that you spend time getting ready for. You’ll end up having a day full of laughter, love, kissing, dancing, and happiness.

We All Get to Know Each Other Before the Big Day

Wedding photography is an essential investment for your marriage. A shoot will let you get to know your photographer (Hopefully, us), and you can even use it to see how your makeup artist and hairdresser function.

You’ll get to know how your photographer handles your lighting, how well you connect in front of a camera, and what poses are best for you. You’ll also get a preview of what to expect when the pictures from your engagement session come in.

It’s A Great Time to Practice

Lots of people feel awkward in front of our professional cameras. Especially if the last time you had professional photos taken was at your high school graduation. That unbalanced and uncomfortable feeling, sadly, gets reflected in the pictures. So how do you avoid that?

Practice! Having an engagement shoot allows you to practice being in front of the camera and getting clicked. You’ll get a taste of what to expect on your wedding day, and so you’ll already be prepared. Your photographer will give you tips on posing, know which is your best side, and help you feel at ease. You’ll also learn how to show emotions and get comfortable with being intimate with your partner in front of the camera. As they say, practice makes perfect.

There Are So Many Uses for The Photos

From save the date cards to wedding website images, the possibilities are endless when it comes to the uses for your engagement photos. You could even place them around your wedding reception venue as part of the décor! With engagement photography, you get professional images of you that you can incorporate into anything related to your wedding. Pretty great, right?
