You said Yes | Virginia Engagement Photographer

So you’re contemplating engagement photography.

Well, You are in the right place, my friend.   I love engagements.  For one, there is wedding photography in the works (my favorite thing ever, obvi!) and two, engagement photography is a very intimate and special type of session. Planning a wedding can be difficult and stressful, and on top of that – finding the perfect wedding photographer isn’t the easiest decision to make either.  

Bundle engagement photography in your wedding photography package.

I highly encourage my Virginia couples to designate one photographer to follow through with their engagement session. There are several reasons for that.

First, trial and error. As an engagement photographer, it gives us a chance to work together to make sure I am the right fit for your wedding! Botched engagement photography can be salvaged, however, your wedding day doesn’t get a “re-do”. It’s almost like a test drive to solidify that you’ve made the right choice in your wedding photographer.

Two, bondage.  (no, not that kind….) Shooting as your engagement photographer allows us to feel more comfortable working together on the big day – when it REALLY matters. Umm, hello – bonus hangout time! Additionally, I think it’s so important for me to create a bond with my couples because, let’s face it, I will be all up in your business on your wedding day (you’ll thank me after, I promise). We don’t want any awkwardness or shyness to hinder you from really showing your emotions!

Three, consistency!  Many photographers have their own way of editing your photos.  I specifically cater to each couple’s style and take into consideration what your wedding theme is or what you are trying to show.  For example, a vintage style session and a high-fashion style session would have very different finished looks, and it’s important to make sure your photographer is aware of your needs – because everyone’s engagement should be unique to their own amazing personalities.

Although I do offer a wedding package that includes an engagement session, but I am always happy to find newly engaged couples and capture beautiful moments between you!
