We’ve heard it all, trust me! I have a “friend.” Cool, we are sure you do. But if they were REALLY a friend, they would encourage you NOT to jack around by having them photograph your engagement session. Why, you ask? Because this is the perfect time to get comfortable and in sync with your wedding photographer. You know, the actual person who will be there on your wedding day and has to learn all your crazy ticks. Your friend, on the other hand, will be obliterated at your reception by 8:00. (As he or she SHOULD be!)
Here is why engagement pictures should be important to you. First, they allow you to learn how to work with your photographer, and just as importantly, as the photographer, how to work with YOU. What you DO like, what you DON’T like, what angles and poses work best for you, etc. Secondly, it gives you diversity with the imagery in your home. You don’t want every picture to be of you in your dress and tuxedo or shot at the same time of year (which is why it is important for you to NOT show up to your engagement shoot wearing flip flops!)
Engagement pictures will give you the diversity in art you are looking for in your home. Plus, whether you want your engagement session in downtown Vancouver, or up high on a North Shore mountains, or out at a Fraser Valley lake (or even Las Vegas, baby), we’re going to have a kickass time!
