The engagement session is one of the best ways to connect with your photographer. This is taken months before the wedding. You get to know how your photographer poses you as a couple before the big day. This will lead to less stress on the wedding day. Most of the interaction is with you and your significant other not the camera. Most of my direction is “Hold hands and walk this direction”. I want to capture the moments where he or she makes you laugh, picks you up, putting your foreheads together, or a kiss that was not planned. This is a time for you to have fun and jump into the air, see a sunset together and dress up a little. It does not hurt to get your hair done, buy a new outfit, and look your best. He could even put on a nice suit and have a romantic dinner afterwards. You are only engaged this short period of time and you are going to be married for 50+ years. My goal is to make it a great experience and capture moments that you can remember for a lifetime.
