Let’s talk about engagement photos! We always like to include a small photography session in whatever wedding packages we custom create for our couple. (your day is way too unique to be presented with generic photography packages, that really don’t ever fit anyone’s day perfectly) And here is the number one reason! Most of us have never been told what to do in front of the camera, nor do we frequently or ever get our photos taken. So, if you feel awkward in front of the camera or, not “very photogenic”, welcome to the club! We don’t feel very different about getting our own picture taken. (it’s very different being behind the camera than in front!)
Engagement photos serve as a valuable practice
A photo session before your big day will take care of all of that! We will show you all the tips and tricks on how to look and especially feel natural in front of the camera. With 13 years of experience as wedding photographers, we will guide you through poses and techniques that highlight your best features and bring out your unique personalities.
Engagement photos serve as a valuable practice session before your wedding day. It’s an opportunity for you and your partner to get comfortable in front of the camera and build a rapport with your photographer. By establishing this connection early on, you’ll feel more relaxed and at ease during your wedding, resulting in more natural and authentic photographs.
Additionally, engagement photos provide a chance to capture the excitement and anticipation of this special time in your lives. They serve as a visual celebration of your love and commitment, not only for yourselves but also for your friends and family to cherish.
Furthermore, engagement photos can be utilized in various creative ways leading up to your wedding. You can use them for save-the-date cards, wedding invitations, or even as personalized décor at your reception. They also make for beautiful additions to your wedding website or social media platforms, allowing you to share your journey with loved ones.
Remember, engagement photos are not just about creating stunning images in incredible locations like Calgary or Banff. They’re about creating memories and enjoying a fun and relaxed experience with your partner. It’s a chance to express your unique personalities and capture the essence of your relationship.
At Heidrich Photography, we understand the importance of engagement photos, which is why we include a photography session tailored to your needs in our wedding packages. Our dedicated photographers will work closely with you to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience, resulting in beautiful and timeless images that reflect your love story.
In conclusion, don’t underestimate the power of engagement photos. Embrace the opportunity to capture this exciting chapter in your lives and develop a connection with your favourite wedding photographer. Let go of any camera shyness and embrace the experience with an open heart. Your engagement photos will not only provide you with cherished memories but also serve as a reminder of the love and joy that surrounds your journey to “I do.”
