Engagement sessions are always fun!! Almost every single wedding I photograph starts out with an engagement session with the couple. Every photographer works differently, so it’s super helpful to do an engagement session so that you know how your photographer works. Then, your wedding day will be a breeze because you already know their system!
Maybe you just got engaged and are looking through engagement photo ideas. I have a wedding planning series here that might help you out as you plan, but I’ll share some tips here that might help in the mean time!
So what happens now? First, pick a date. Many vendors book out a year ahead of time, so if you really want a certain venue or photographer, you might have to ask for some of their open dates so that you can get your dream team! Venues and photographers are usually booked first. I have an entire list of wonderful vendors that I love and I share it with all my brides!
Once a couple has booked me as their photographer, we start planning their engagement session! We choose the season that you want (as long as I still have availability for it! Fall books up several months out) and create a game plan. I’m up for any location – in the midwest or elsewhere! Feel free to bring your pets, blankets, champagne, fairy lights, confetti, really anything you want! Let’s make this unique to you!!
Now…. enjoy looking through all of these fun photos from this year’s engagement/couple’s sessions!
