I love engagement sessions!
For me, as a wedding photographer, engagement photos are a fantastic chance to get to know my new wedding couple before I get to spend 12 hours with them, meeting their friends and family on their wedding day! For the bride-and-groom-to-be they get a chance to work with me early on and have a wedding photographer test drive!
I love how much engagement sessions can help make the wedding day photography better and give me a chance to get to know an awesome couple I've just met.
Beyond all these things I mostly just really enjoy the creativity and freedom you get with a couple or engagement session! There are no time lines, no stress and once you get past the initial jitters of getting your photo taken it's a ton of fun so it makes for genuine smiles and great expressions. Plus you get to pick locations that fit you as a couple perfectly! So we can go to some amazing and unique spots that speak to who you are as a couple!
These are just some of the reasons why I include an engagement session for free with every wedding photography package that I offer.

Thanks as always to my photography partner Photos by Adele for helping me or letting me help her on sessions!
