It was a pleasure to meet up with Nathan and Jes for their engagement session last weekend. We had a wonderful afternoon enjoying some of the beautiful spaces in Minnippi Parklands. I absolutely love capturing the love between a couple in these early days. To see their smiles and their joy in being together. Nathan and Jes are busy planning a beautiful wedding at the Ocean View Estate Winery in October. I’m looking forward to being there to photograph them making their vows and beginning their married life together.
Some of my wedding couples when they are making their booking question the purpose of having an engagement session when they are going to get lots of lovely photos of their wedding. My answer to their question is that as well as getting really beautiful photos there is also a very important learning and peace of mind aspect that you receive by having an engagement session. I believe these sessions are really important as they give a couple a chance to become familiar with being photographed by their professional photographer – something that can be quite daunting to some. You will become familiar with the type of instructions you might be given on the wedding day and how your photographer will go about taking your portraits. You will get to know your photographer a bit so that when they enter on your wedding day they feel like a familiar friend and not a stranger. In the many years that I’ve been photographing weddings I have found that engagement sessions add a lot of value to a wedding package. More relaxed couples make for better photos on the wedding day and a engagement session in the lead-up to your wedding will help you to relax and not feel anxious about the photography aspect of your day. And most of all you get some really beautiful images that capture this special time in your lives while love is new and exciting. I see a lot of value in these sessions and that is why most of my wedding packages include a engagement session within them.
