Honesty – I don’t do the hard sell on engagement sessions. Some people want them. Some people don’t want them. Whatevs man.
Truth is though – you don’t have to look at it as an ENGAGEMENT SESSION. I tell everyone that you should just think of it as… a portrait session with just the two of you. The thing is that other than your thousands of professional photos on your wedding day – you won’t have any other professional photos of the two of you. They’ll all be selfies. Or from photobooths at other people’s weddings. You know it’s true.
So since you’re already hiring a wedding photographer – it’s a really simple thing to throw in an engagement session and get more photos of the two of you looking good. Because come on – it’s kind of weird for couples to be like… let’s get some professional photos of us for no reason.
Of course – you don’t need a reason. Other photographers will tell you that you should do it for you and how much your love yourself or… whatever.
This is Lauren and Dean. They’re engaged to get married. So we took some photos. We went all over the place. Grant Park. Jackson St. Bridge. and then Ponce City Market. Lots and lots of photos and lots of me bossing them around. Hold hands. Kiss. Makeout. Actively kiss. Stand there. Hipster hand hold. Etc.
Hey Lauren and Dean – thanks.
