"But, we don't want the engagement session."
I strive to have an engagement session with every couple who pick Brooke Price Photography. The true value of an engagement session is so much more than what is on the surface.
An engagement session gives you the opportunity to become comfortable with me and in front of the camera. While you are getting used to being in front of the lens, I am learning about you, as a couple. I can begin to understand who you are together, your quirks, your personalities, etc.
For those who may be camera shy, you can become awkward around cameras. This discomfort can cause you to make the same false smile every time the shutter snaps. During the engagement session, I work to build your trust. I look for ways to make you relax and settle in so we can capture more natural, honest expressions.
Even if I am not the photographer for you, heed this advice. Have an engagement session with the same photographer who will be covering your wedding. The idea of the engagement session isn't just for Save the Dates and a Reception Book, it is to build trust with your photographer. That trust will make your wedding day run smoother and with less stress.
Knowing and liking your photographer, is key in the success of your wedding. It will help keep you focused on the real reason you are having a wedding in the first place, each other.
