Engagement Pictures And How to Swing Them

So, what's the point of taking engagement pictures? In the past three months, I've had three couples who've asked me that, because they were about to go in front of the cameras for the first time. And that's one of the points of engagement pictures - that it IS your first time in front of the cameras. It's good preparation for your wedding day, when you're going to be on display all day, mostly with a lense in your face.

Your engagement session is also a great time to become familiar with your photographer and how they work, and for them to become familiar with you. Once again, it's going to be all day with them in your face, giving you and your friend's directions. It's also a good reason, and a good idea, to schedule your hair and make-up trial, so you'll know how you're going to look that day, too.

Brandi and Kendell and Nikki and Andrew and Laurie and Luke were all nervous before their sessions, but look how wonderful theirs turned out! At the end of the day, you're more comfortable with each other, more comfortable with your photographer, and you have a set of fantastic pictures of the two of you as a couple.

Have you taken your engagement photos, yet? What was your favorite part? And if not, what are you most worried about? Let me know in the comments below.
