Why should we get engagement photos taken?
There are a few reasons why all couples should get engagement photos taken.
First off, you can get comfortable in front of the camera. Unless you’re a model (which you might be!), you probably haven’t spent much time in front of a professional camera. Getting married can be nerve-racking, and all the awkward poses and forced smiles can add a lot of pressure on your big day. An engagement photo shoot gives you the chance to familiarise yourself with what it’s like to have all eyes on you and practice being yourself in front of the camera so we can capture the most authentic, truest versions of yourselves.
Second, we can get to know each other! Every couple is different, and as your wedding photographer, we want to get know you so we know how to best capture the essence of your day. With an engagement photo shoot, we have the chance to start building a relationship so things can run more smoothly on the wedding day.
Also, you can use your engagement photography session as a trial run for your hair and makeup. You’ll get to see how you’ll look on camera before the wedding day and be totally sure that you’ll achieve the bridal look you’re going for.
If you have a location in mind for your engagement photography session, let us know! Or, we can offer some ideas for unique spots or mountaintops for that epic backdrop. Our Wanaka and Queenstown engagement photographers are experts in the best locations in the region for your photos.
This is an opportunity to get to know us and get a go at being in front of the camera, so on your big day you won’t have to worry. Being engaged is a wonderful time in your life and we’d love to share it with you!
