4. Engagement photos can help with wedding planning
You know engagement photos are important for many sentimental reasons but don’t forget how helpful a new set of photos is from a logistical standpoint. You’ll likely need photos to help build a wedding website, mail out save-the-dates, print photos for your wedding shower, share on social media, etc. Start the wedding planning process on an exciting and organized note by elevating your printed and digital wedding materials.
5. Express yourselves creatively
There will be NO shortage of wedding photographs during your wedding day. Why should you have engagement photos taken? It’s simple, they have a way of capturing your relationship in its everyday style, natural elements, and simply spending time with your favorite person. You’ll get the total creative freedom to choose your location, clothing, and overall style that represents you as a couple. These are moments you’ll want to capture.
Once you’ve chosen your photographer and the day is near, it’s important to talk through the moments you want to be captured. Consult our wedding photo checklist so you don’t miss out on must-have shots.
