You have so much to organise and many tough decisions ahead of you, and you’ve probably already decided that you would love to hire the services of a professional wedding photographer. But have you ever thought about booking a professional engagement session?
An engagement session can be an excellent way for you to get to know your photographer before the actual wedding. The photographer also gets to know their clients, find out more about their personalities and their love story to date. It can be beneficial for you to witness first-hand how a particular photographer works, and gives you an understanding and leaves you feeling more comfortable with having your photo taken. A happy and relaxed subject makes for a much better picture. An engagement session puts your mind at ease and would allow you to relax on your wedding day and not feel nervous about being photographed.
Here are a few ideas of what you could do with the photographs to help create a unique and memorable wedding:
Use the photos to help produce:
Unique Save The Date cards
Bespoke Wedding Invitations
Upload them to your wedding website or Facebook page
Custom guest books (these are very fashionable!)
Display a video presentation to the guests during your reception
Framed prints to display on the register signing table
