An engagement session is basically a photo shoot on location where a professional photographer gets a chance to capture two people in love who wants to share it with the world, or even just between themselves.
More than that, it is an opportunity for you to work with your photographer for the first time. It is an opportunity for you to see how I shoot and for me to get to know you better as a couple. If you have not had a photographer move within inches of you to take a photograph, it can be a bit intimidating at first. It is a good way for me to help you get comfortable in front of the camera so that there are no surprises on your big day.
These sessions can be as fun and elaborate as you'd like to make it, so at the end of the day, I'd like for you to not only remember the day you had a photo shoot, but also the day you had a great date...and had a professional photographer tag along. The photographs then can be used to create "save the date" cards, announcements and even incorporated into wedding day decor pieces, or slideshow in the reception.
