Photography plays such a big role in the process of marriage. Capturing all the special moments from when he gets down on one knee and she says yes to the groom whisking away his bride at the end of the night - happily making their way down honeymoon avenue. It’s all part of the process and it’s import that all of it is documented. Yet another reason why wedding photography is my passion, I get to provide the happy couple with a backstage pass to relive their wedding day for a lifetime to come. But when you really take a step back it’s a very intimate time and it’s important that the bride and groom trust me as their photographer to capture these moments precisely and in a light that best represents each individual couple. Building a relationship with clients is vital to my work and it all starts with the engagement photos.
An engagement session is the best way to break the ice and get to know one another. It’s a chance to study the couple’s chemistry and see how they interact. This helps me prepare for the wedding and it helps the couple get comfortable in front of a stranger behind a camera. Another huge perk of engagement photos… putting them to good use!
