Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your entire life, but the excitement of the wedding itself often overshadows the beauty of one of the other most important phases of your life: when you became engaged. That moment when the two of you decided you are going to spend the rest of your lives together as a team, as the perfect match, as two halves to one circle; it’s priceless. The emotions, the perfect looks, the beauty that is felt in the sweet bliss of the engagement phase is one that you will never experience again, and it’s worth holding on to forever. When we met Emily and Kevin last year, they simply radiated the kind of excitement for each other that we love in our couples. Photographing them was a breeze, they laughed at and with each other and with some direction they easily fell into gorgeous poses just by being themselves!
This is why we strongly recommend to our couples that they should take engagement photos. They are a great way to work with your wedding photographer and get a good feel for what it means to be a model which you will be (at least for us) on your wedding day! We all change as we go through the seasons of life so what better way to immortalize these beautiful halcyon days of love than with engagement photography?
Photography doesn’t have to be reserved for the wedding alone, and when you choose to hire professional photographers, you know that your special moment is going to be preserved forever. Besides, when you move in together you want some beautiful and professional photos to hang on your walls as you begin life together.
Why choose professional photographers for your engagement photographs?
The answer is simple: Because professional wedding photographers know how to capture the moment perfectly, without getting anything in the shot you don’t want to be there. But like we mentioned before, it is also a great opportunity to work with your photographer – and your makeup artist – before your wedding day! If you can feel comfortable being yourself and having fun in these intimate poses, chances are you will not be nervous around your photographer on your wedding day.
Say goodbye to the chance of being photo bombed and don’t worry about a poorly timed click capturing your face when you’re not at your best. Don’t worry that the angle won’t be right, or that the lighting will be off. And the best part of all? Even with photographers present, this moment is still a special and intimate moment between the two of you. Only now, it’s even better because you can capture the moment and treasure it forever.
We can be as involved or as subtle as you like, but rest assured we are going to get the shots you want all throughout this once in a lifetime moment. Trust us when we say you will want to remember this moment forever, and with the help of our highly trained professional wedding and engagement photographers, you can re-live it as often as you want. The day you become engaged is the day you choose your happiness, and we would be honored to be a part of that glorious decision.
There is untold wonder in each of the seasons of life, and when you photograph your engagement, you give yourself the gift of hanging these memories on the wall before the pitter patter of little feet fill the halls. Your engagement photos are a great way to celebrate your love at every time, and hold on to those moments forever.
