Amanda and Jesse were looking for engagement photography to help make their wedding photos feel more comfortable. For some people, having their photo taken is really exciting, but for lots of people, there’s worry that they will look awkward or it won’t be fun. It’s common to feel a bit of nervousness about your wedding photography. It’s rare that we have photos taken just of us!
I prefer to call engagement sessions connection sessions. Connection is the purpose! As your photographer, I want to see how you two connect. It helps me to understand what’s natural for you, and what might not work for your wedding photography. Connection sessions also give you the chance to feel what it’s like to have me giving you direction. It also gives you a peek at what your wedding photos might look like!
Engagement photography is invaluable. Once you’ve “practiced” some of the poses we might do for your wedding day, your actual wedding day portraits are a breeze. Even more important, knowing what’s coming can make your wedding photography fun and romantic.
My style is candid and natural, but that doesn’t just happen. All of my couples look relaxed in my wedding photography because we’ve already spent several hours together during meetings, their engagement photography and during their wedding. I want to feel like a guest with a camera rather than a stranger taking photos of you. Connections sessions make those honest, candid and real moments happen!
