T&J’s Flames Game Engagement session – Teaser photos
Engagement photos are awesome for a few reasons.
1. It’s good practice.
Not many people we’ve met feel totally comfortable in front of a camera. Case in point – We don’t even feel 100% comfortable in front of a camera. We get it! It’s sometimes awkward. So how can we possibly expect our couples to feel comfortable? Engagement sessions are awesome because you have a chance to be in front of a professional’s camera at least once before your wedding day. It also gives you a chance to get comfortable with your photographer, and it gives your photographer a chance to figure out what makes you feel most comfortable on the other side of their lens. Camera jitters are allowed. Feeling awkward is allowed. Most couples we work with are a little nervous before their session, but by the time they are done, they realize it wasn’t so bad …. and GASP! Maybe they even manage to have a little fun.
2. It’s a little more relaxed.
A wedding day is a BIG day. For everyone involved, including your vendors. The excitement is piqued, emotions are running high, timelines are tight. Weddings are awesome and by God do we love them, but we need to work quickly to capture the most important moments that tell the story of your day. Engagement sessions are relaxed, and they’re awesome because of it. We can take the time to get comfortable. We can be super creative with lighting, locations and what we choose to do for your session. Take this post for example – WE WENT TO A FLIPPIN’ FLAMES GAME! I mean – it doesn’t get more relaxed than that!
3. It can be more than just photos. It can be FUN.
Our philosophy for engagement sessions is to plan something FUN. Why not plan something the two of you LOVE to do together? Its better than spending 2 hours awkwardly posing you in some park you’ve never been to. Having a beer at your favorite pub. Hiking your favorite mountain trail. Taking your two beloved dogs to the dog wash. Heck, nom nom noming Nachos and Beer at the Flames Game – whatever! As long as you guys are doing something you love together, the session becomes less about photos and more about YOU.
