Engagement photos are becoming increasingly popular among couples who are planning to tie the knot. While some might think that these photos are an unnecessary expense or an inconvenience, there are plenty of reasons why you should consider doing engagement photos. Here are 10 reasons to help convince you 😉

1. Get to know your photographer: Engagement photos are a great way to get to know your wedding photographer before your big day. You can use the opportunity to see how they work and get comfortable with their style and personality. This can help you feel more relaxed and confident on your wedding day.

2. Practice for your wedding day: Your engagement photo shoot can serve as a rehearsal for your wedding day. You can experiment with different poses and learn what works best for you and your partner. This can help you feel more prepared and relaxed when it comes time to take wedding photos.

3. Allows you to get comfortable in front of the camera: Many people feel nervous or self-conscious when they’re in front of the camera. Doing an engagement shoot can help you get used to the experience and feel more comfortable posing and being photographed. Literally all of my couples have said to me at the end of the session how much fun they had!

4. Create memories: Engagement photos are a great way to capture the excitement and love you’re feeling in the lead-up to your wedding day. You can look back on these photos for years to come and remember this special time in your life.

5. Use the photos for save-the-dates & invitations: You can use your engagement photos to create unique and personal save-the-dates. This is a fun and creative way to announce your wedding date to your guests.

6. Share with family and friends: Your engagement photos are a great way to share your love and excitement with family and friends. You can use them for social media posts or even print them out and display them in your home.

7. Use the photos for wedding décor: Incorporating your engagement photos into your wedding décor is not only a suggestion but highly recommend. Show them off to all your guests! For example, you can display them on a photo wall or use them in your wedding guest book!

8. Get dressed up: Your engagement photo shoot is a great excuse to get dressed up and look your best. You can use the opportunity to have your hair and makeup done and wear your favorite outfits and basically feel like models 😎

9. Explore your city: Your engagement photo shoot can be a fun way to explore your city or town. You can choose locations that are meaningful to you as a couple and create a personalized and unique experience.

10. To just have fun!: You can treat it as a date night for the two of you! Use the opportunity to connect with your partner and celebrate your love for each other. If you’re looking for permission to run around in a field acting like a kid again with your partner, this is it. 😉
