An engagement session is a great way to build a foundation between a photographer and the bride & groom. Engagement sessions have come a long way from the traditional  posed portrait. It is an opportunity to capture the personality of the couple in a stress-free environment  without the constraints of the wedding day. It’s a great way to celebrate the excitement of your  relationship while it’s fresh and new.

When possible, an engagement session will give you a chance to get to better know your photographer. Once you see all the amazing images from this session you will be assured  that you will look great in the images from your wedding day. The session will allow your photographer to get to know you better, figure out what angles look best for you and assess your comfort level when being photographed. For some couples this can be very easy, for others it may take a little longer.  A professional photographer works with all types of clients. For a wedding photographer, establishing trust and confidence with their clients is more important than the technical aspect of creating images. The best photographer will know how to do both. The end result can be spectacular
