How I Structure Engagement Sessions
Scheduling an engagement session is a great way to capture the love and excitement between you and your partner leading up to your wedding day. When you schedule your engagement session with me, we're not just going to stand around, striking poses for an hour. We're going to have some fun! I structure my engagement sessions much like adventure sessions. We're going to get out and explore a beautiful spot with an activity of your choice. It will be an experience you share together - not just for the photos, but for the memories too!
Vermont Engagement Session at Warren Falls
Take a look at Chris and Allie's Vermont engagement session. They were in town for the week, traveling in from Denver, CO. They had a packed schedule with bridal showers, a friend’s wedding, family outings, and a venue visit at The Inn at Round Barn Farm. But we were able to squeeze in a session before they traveled back home. So we set up a day to tour the Farm so they could share their vision with me and followed it with an adventure engagement session at Warren Falls.
Luckily, the rain that was forecasted was only a sprinkle and not a complete downpour so we decided to stick to the original plan and stay outside. Allie was such a trooper for remaining sleeveless for the majority of the engagement session (and in 45* weather)! We played in a field with Sugarbush off in the distance - the very spot that Chris popped the question, on an equally rainy day! We then took the fun to Warren Falls, a place that Chris and Allie used to frequent in the summers before moving to Colorado.
Benefits of an Engagement Session
I know, I know, getting in front of the camera can seem a bit scary. But an engagement session can be an extremely valuable experience for several reasons:
- Get comfortable with your photographer.
An engagement session is a great opportunity to get to know your photographer. You'll have a chance to become comfortable with them before your wedding day. It allows you to establish a relationship with them, which can help you feel more at ease and relaxed on wedding day.
- Practice posing and get guidance
An engagement session is a chance to practice posing for the camera. You'll get guidance from your photographer on what works best for you as a couple. This will help you feel more confident on your wedding day and ensure that you look your best in your photos.
- Create beautiful photos to cherish.
Engagement photos can be used for save the dates, wedding invitations, or displayed at your wedding reception. Plus, they are a great way to document your love and commitment to each other before your big day.
- Capture your story.
Engagement sessions can be customized to reflect your personalities and interests as a couple. This can be an opportunity to tell your love story through photos that showcase your relationship and connection.
Overall, an engagement session can be a fun and rewarding experience that helps you prepare for your wedding day and create beautiful memories to cherish for a lifetime.
