First and foremost, you should have an engagement session done because it’s fun. You get to pamper yourself and dress up and — here’s the best part — snuggle and kiss your best friend for a good hour or two.
Engagement sessions also serve as prime bonding time for you two. In fact, many of the couples I photograph tell me that their engagement shoot brought them closer together, something they didn’t think possible considering how much they were in love already. How’s that for amazing?
Think about it, though. When you’re doing intimate things such as just looking into each other’s eyes, holding your partner’s hand or resting on his shoulder in very romantic settings, it’s impossible not to fall more in love. Truth: In our fast-paced world, sometimes we forget to enjoy the silence and the moment and just be together.
There are also practical reasons for an engagement session, too. For example, many people use shots from their engagement shoot for save the dates, wedding invitations and even thank you cards post-wedding. (Psst. We can totally hook you up with those extras.)
Your engagement photographs are also great to use on your engagement website, for announcing your engagement online and for simply documenting yourself as a young and in-love couple. I promise you, your grandkids will get a kick out of these pictures in, say, 40 years!
