Why You Should Use a Planner for Your Engagement Session Too
Before you pose for photos on your wedding day, you'll likely spend some time in front of the lens for another very important photo session: your engagement shoot. Some couples aren't sure if it's necessary to take engagement photos, and while it's entirely optional, there are so many good reasons why you should plan an e-session. In addition to getting a keepsake from your time as an engaged pair and photos to use on everything from your wedding website to your social media feed, they'll also give you an opportunity to get comfortable with your photographer and learn how to pose for portraits before the wedding day arrives.
If you're already sold on the idea of setting up an engagement session, the next step is to ensure it runs seamlessly. This can be especially complicated if you're choosing an outdoor setting for your shoot. To make things easy, wedding planners like Lea Stafford Events are on hand to make sure your session is stylish as well as well-planned. Read on for Lea's advice on how to make the best of your Engagement Session...
"We understand the scale of what this can be isn't for the masses. However, our clients are often creative in their own right, bold, and outside-of-the-box thinkers, so we thoroughly enjoy working with them on creating the direction for their engagement session. It can be as simple or as complex as you'd like. During the exploration process, we work closely with you to learn more about you as individuals, and as a unit. By going through this learning phase we are able to pull bits and pieces from your story to highlight it in the most unique way possible during your session. If you two share a love for rescued dogs, let's incorporate that! If you two met at the Proper Hotel and want to relive that experience, we are on it! This all allows us to get extra creative, which is what we live for. This is why we include a scaled experience in the wedding planning and design service we offer."
Here are my Top 6 reasons to utilize a wedding planner when thinking about your Engagement Session:
- There is something special about an outsider's ability to pick up on the nuances of your love actions and your shared chemistry.
- It will only strengthen your connection with your planner as you approach the wedding planning and design process.
- Your story will be shared in the most unique and creative way.
- The perfect locations for your story will be shared with you and in most cases vetted.
- You will have an official Creative Director that will ideate the concept, source all items, and produce the day for all involved.
- The day will be an experience in itself if done correctly.
