Your e-session is the perfect opportunity to connect before the wedding day so you feel at ease in front of the camera resulting in even more beautiful and authentic wedding photographs. Here are my top 4 tips:
1. Wear Something You’re Comfortable In
Choose outfits that make you feel like a million bucks. If you do purchase something new, take it out for a test run–hello, date night excuse–with plenty of time to launder it before your session in case of a spill or other mishap. You also want to think about how they’ll photograph during your session.
2. Consider Professional Hair And Makeup For Your Shoot
Photos require slightly more saturated makeup than your every day look so that you don’t become washed out. Haven’t done your hair and makeup consultation with your wedding day stylist yet? It can be a smart move to schedule that consult the morning before your session to knock out two birds with one makeup brush!
3. Set The Scene
Location is everything, so before heading to your neighborhood park for engagement photos, think about what you really love as a couple and what places reflect that. If you relish making coffee together and snuggling on the couch with some good ol’ Netflix, maybe an at-home session is right for you. Are you a couple who enjoys a great cocktail? Take your photos at the hotel bar. Don’t be afraid to incorporate your favorite activities.
4.Hire A Professional Photographer
This should go without saying, but you are going to get the best photos by hiring a professional to take your engagement photos. Your engagement is such a short and special chapter in your life and your relationship, and you deserve to commemorate that time with beautiful photos together.
If possible, we highly recommend booking your engagement photos with your wedding photographer. This gives you an opportunity to get comfortable and connect with your photographer prior to your big day, making for even better photos from your wedding.
