Engagement Photos - Wilmington North Carolina

Is an engagement photo session necessary? One of the most fun things to do before the wedding is an engagement session. Many couples are nervous about doing these or think they are not necessary. But when will you ever get another chance to do a fun photo shoot with your partner? Also, you will get priceless pictures of the two of you together. Many photographers will offer an engagement session. Do not eliminate this from your package. It’s a great way for you to feel comfortable with the photographer and visa versa. There are times when either the bride or groom is camera shy. The engagement session will help you learn to relax and get comfortable being in front of the camera. It is also a chance for the photographer to get to know you personally. Believe it or not, your personality has a lot to do with the choices the photographer will make on your wedding day. Your photographer wants to provide you with a complete picture of your day. Allow them a chance to do this by getting to know you.


After the shoot is over what can the photos be used for?

The photos can be used to announce on your wedding on your facebook page, twitter or even through email. A lot of brides use their favorite photo for a newspaper or save the date announcement. Even if you don't have a specific need for them, it's a great keepsake.
