Why should I schedule an engagement photo session? Couples and other people ask me that question all the time.
The simple answer to that is that you like and value photography and that you want to document your engagement with some professional engagement photos, and that it's also an excellent chants to get comfortable with your wedding photographer before the big day, and that on top of that you can use the engagement photos for the "save the date" cards and the reception table book.
These are all good reasons, but the most important reason to have engagement photos taken is one that most people don't think about. No bride, no groom, no wedding photographer, ever seems to consider.
The real reason is because photos are not for today! Think about this, some periods of life are very short. A tiny window of time that perhaps may be only a few months or a few years long. A really thin slice of life, really, compared to your entire life.
But yet what happened in this small, tiny window of time is disproportionately huge.
Something happened that changed the rest of your entire life.
In that tiny window of time, small little miracles happened.
Because in that tiny window of life, you found someone. And they found you.
You fell in love. They fell in love with you.
This is the start of something big, a commitment to each other, and maybe the start of new life into this world.
This changes a lot of peoples life, like a ripple effect in a lake it affects everyone around you. And in time, the descendants you have brought forth by virtue of your commitment, will affect new generations in the future.
Think about it! You have basically changed the course of the world, you have contributed to the future of this planet.
I know I'm getting carried away thinking about it, but this is in essence why I can say that your engagement is very important. It's a very short period in your life that has a very significant impact on your loved ones, your family and maybe to the world.
That's why it's such an important sliver of time to celebrate and document with beautiful engagement photography, to have this time forever preserved so it's there to be seen whenever you wish to remember, to revisit this important time in your life and feel the joy and emotions again, and of course the same goes for the important wedding photos. These timeless photos are for the rest of your life to enjoy and for your descendents to love!
So that's my long answer and reason why you want to have an engagement session and engagement photos.
