Engagement sessions are organized to take a snapshot of who you are and how much you have grown in love with each other. While it's challenging to answer who you are, capturing that aspect in a photograph is even harder. You can rely on your friends to capture photos for you, but they may not capture the perfect moments. This is where a professional engagement photographer comes into play.
The common perception of engagement photography involves couples wearing matching attire while walking hand in hand at a park or lying on the grass while joyfully looking at one another. However, these photo ideas have been used repeatedly and may seem too common.
Instead, you can source inspiration for your engagement session by thinking of fond memories of the two of you doing an activity together.
If you enjoy slouching on a couch while conducting marathons of television series, then you can use those shows as inspiration for your engagement session. Anything that you enjoy together calls for great times, even if the shoot may extend for several hours.
Aside from what you enjoy doing together, you can also take inspiration from activities that you plan to do but can't because of life obligations. Whether its a day at the beach, atop mountains, or creating delicious dishes, these acts are part of your most memorable endeavours together.
Choose a photographer with extensive experience
Professional photographers will bring a spring well of ideas that can enrich the photographs while incorporating your suggestions as well. For a photographer, customer satisfaction is essential, and the synergy of creative juices will lead to stunning images. Likewise, excellent photographers know when to take control by directing the couple on what to do and giving them confidence while acting the scenes out.
They will plan shoots to maximize the hours and the stunning setting that nature provides. Also, they will be sensitive enough to give the love birds some private moments too. If they are capturing photos from a date set-up, they will keep enough distance so that the couple can enjoy without the feeling of being intruded.
What do you want to remember from your old pictures?
Perhaps you recall the days when you made meals for each other in the kitchen or shared new music. Engagement photographers can help relive those moments through re-enaction. These simple moments may help you remember milestones in your life, and great photographers will help freeze those memories through captivating snapshots before you start another chapter in your lives.
