Even with the aid of a professional wedding vendor, planning the ideal wedding can be pretty challenging for most couples. And yet, the best time to take engagement photos is when you and your partner are feeling overwhelmed. Why do we say this? Because this allows you to relax amidst all the planning and capture lovely moments together!
A photoshoot session is a great way to relax before the big day and make sure you and your partner are at ease in front of the camera. Of course, we understand that not all couples are comfortable in front of cameras, which is fine. But that’s what your professional wedding photographer is there for. They’ll guide you every step of the way on what’s expected of you.
Meet with your photographer early to talk about the aspects of your wedding that you want him to capture and have a brief warm-up.
The key to getting the very best photos is to have fun. If your joy is genuine, it will shine through in your images. But many couples make the mistake of believing that their session would be uncomfortable; this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Secure the services of a photographer whose portfolio includes candid and fun photos, and your session will likely feel the same way.
Attire for Weddings
The clothing you choose to wear is an important part of your engagement photo shoot. Keep the following points in mind while arranging your engagement photo outfits for the day before your wedding.
Prepare two outfits. The first engagement photo outfit will set the tone for your wedding. If it is a formal event, dress for a date night or a night on the town. This is especially necessary if you intend to use your engagement photos for save-the-date cards or a wedding website.
In addition, this look serves as a guide for your visitors, and it can be more lighthearted or casual. That allows anybody who sees the pictures to get a sense of who you are as a couple.
These steps are all great, but you’ll still need a professional wedding photographer to capture timeless engagement and wedding photos. Mike Robinson Photography would love to be the one to do this for you.
