You can plan your engagement session to capture photos that will last forever
Find the perfect photographer
You can start planning your engagement photography session by looking for photographers in your local area that are skilled in these kinds of moments. You can start by checking out their website galleries and social media accounts to determine if they have the same vision as you. Next, reach out via email or phone.
Engagement sessions should consist of intimate photoshoots with a photographer who you are comfortable around. Get a list together of photographers near you and reach out to them with any questions, pricing information, or samples. You should take different photographs at different times during the day. Some photos may be taken in natural lighting, while others are captured when artificial lighting is used to highlight the beauty of the session. Before you sign anything, be sure to include all of these items in your contract.
You should also inquire about the pricing of each photographer's engagement session package. This will ensure that you know what your investment includes so that there are no surprises later, when you need photos for stationery or other items.
Do you have a theme in your mind? There are many themes that could be used in your engagement session. Think about the season, the place it is held, and which colors you like. There are many themes that you can choose from, such as a beach theme for spring or mountain themed engagements for those who live in the mountains.
How to choose your location
You have a particular geographic area in mind? Many couples are keen to incorporate their favorite locations into their engagement sessions. Some couples love to include their hometown or the location where they got married. Also, park sessions are an option for engagements that take places in late summer and early fall. To ensure that your photos last longer than one day, we recommend you choose locations with spectacular scenery. There are so many ways to take engagement photos. However, some of our favorites involve exploring new places with your partner.
An engagement session can be conducted in any city, as long you have a photographer who is willing and able to travel. It is also crucial that the couple know where they want their session to take place so they can discuss it with the photographer. There are many locations you can choose from. Be aware of how much time is needed to reach each location. Also, consider whether this type of photo will look best in natural lighting (some photographers prefer sunlight).
Setting a Timeline (and Budget)
Setting up a timeline in advance is an important step before booking your engagement photographer package. This way, you can be sure you're choosing a time that works best for you. We recommend that you schedule the engagement session six months before your wedding date. However, this can vary depending on personal preference.
Engagement sessions last approximately two hours. It all depends on how much you plan to visit during your engagement shoot. Some people prefer to go everywhere, while others are more focused and need less content in order to save their money for the big day. This is something you should keep in mind as you decide which package is best for your needs. This money can be used to purchase photography packages that will last forever and provide memories from all the important moments.
