I met these two lovely people at a farm just south of Calgary for their engagement session in January (wow, am I ever behind in blogging!) Being a Calgary Engagement Photographer is so exciting – there are always so many lovely little gems outside the city for portraits!
Engagement portraits are an often-overlooked aspect of wedding photography – but they are extremely important! Besides marking the whirl-wind stage of engagement with all of the wedding-planning excitement, and providing you with some lovely images for your save the date cards, there is one other aspect that is incredibly important.
Calgary Engagement Photographer
An engagement session gives you the opportunity to experience what it will be like to work with your chosen photographer on the day of your wedding! It also gives your photographer a good working knowledge of how you are together as a couple, how much posing and direction you need, as well as get a feel for your personality and learn how to get the best emotions out of you.
Each photographer works a little bit differently, and prepares in other ways, but one thing I can say for sure is that all photographers do spend a fair amount of time preparing for your special day, and they invest a lot of brain power in coming up with strategies on how to get the very best expressions, emotions and poses from you. Just as no photographer is the same, no couple is the same – your engagement session is your opportunity to show your photographer what you’re looking for with your images, what ideas you have, and to get to know each other so that the wedding day is more comfortable for everyone.
