Why Engagement Sessions are a Must Have • Temecula Wedding Photographer

Hello Friends!

Today I’m going to talk about engagement sessions and why I think that they are so important when it comes to your  overall wedding day experience.  Actually, I’m going to go as far as saying that they are a MUST DO before your wedding day!  So if you’re a bride that’s wondering if an engagement session is something you want, let me enlighten you!

Here are the top 3 reasons why my clients LOVE engagement sessions!

1. Hair and Make-up trial for the Bride.


An engagement session is the perfect time to do a hair and make-up trial.  Why?  Because this is the only time before your wedding day that you’ll be able to see how your wedding look will photograph and if your stylists need to make any tweaks for the day of.

2. More time together in front of my camera.

Such an important one.  The more time you guys spend together in front of my lens, the more comfortable you’ll be on your actual wedding day.  Whether you’re a bride or groom, stepping in front of the camera can be an intimidating experience for some.  I’ll know exactly what you do and don’t want without the pressures of having a busy wedding day schedule in the back of your mind!

3. It’s SO much fun!
I can go on and on talking about how much fun I have with my clients.  I can honestly say that my clients have become good friends and I really owe it to the time we spent together at their engagement shoots.  I really feel like there needs to be a connection between a wedding photographer and his or her clients.  It’s super important for me to get to know you, but I also think it’s equally important for you as a couple to get to know me as well.  This way, by the middle of your shoot, it’s basically a bunch of friends just hanging out and taking some snap shots.  You wouldn’t believe that this fun experience can be done on a wedding day, busy schedule and all!  But it so can!  With the proper time-line planning, I have had some of the funnest wedding day experiences with my clients.

Every wedding photographer is different.  I have chosen to  make my engagement sessions complimentary with each pricing package that I offer.  These engagement sessions are just that important to me!  Whether or not you choose me as your photographer, I hope you walk away from this blog post with a better idea of why engagement sessions are so important.
