There’s something really welcoming about E & T. It’s something about the relaxed conversation. It swiftly steps over small talk and pleasantries but maintains pleasantness. It’s like the conversation that happens at ease around a campfire or a slow drive to nowhere in particular. Part of the reason why we offer engagement sessions is to develop some rapport before the wedding day, to get to know each other. With E & T, this all seemed to be accomplished in the first 10 minutes!
Rapport isn’t the only reason why we recommend engagement sessions though. Another reason is that on your wedding day, there’s a decent chance that things will be a little hurried. You’ve got guests who might not like the long photo session between ceremony and rehearsal maybe. Or maybe you spent more time hugging people than you anticipated. Or manevouring the dress in a bathroom has been significantly more time-consuming than expected. Or whatever. Sometimes portrait sessions on a wedding day are a bit hurried, and that’s cool. Or at least, it’s ok–it happens. Engagement sessions at least offer a photo session done that’s relaxed, that you can ease into a little, at a pace where any camera-shyness can ease off a bit, one that you might even get a bit goofy during.
Another reason why engagement sessions are cool is because you end up with some cool photos of yourselves in more casual attire, maybe looking slightly more rested than you’ll be on your wedding day.
