One important items that we always stress to our clients is the importances of engagement sessions. This is the opportunity to get to know your photographer, and for them to get to know you. In today's digital world, a lot of our clients never even meet us in person when reserving us, so this may be the first time that we get to meet in person, and we always try to avoid waiting until the wedding day if possible.
This also helps us as the photographer to understand how you respond to the camera, and allows the couple to know how we work as photographers. It is very important that you build a strong relationship with your photographer. This can be tough, with the limited amount of time you interact with the each other before the wedding, every opportunity helps.
With every genre of photography there needs to be a connection. Even portrait photographers, that are only doing headshots for corporate clients or profiles, long for the opportunity to build that relationship. This is what shows the real you.
Lastly, there just fun!! You get to be the real you, you can bring props, pets, outfit changes and go to your favorite couple hang out spot.
Here is a few more examples :)
