“I know I’ve got the shot when my face hurts because I’ve been smiling with you.”
The Warm-up Before the Wedding Day
The secret to capturing images that are natural is in how I get those expressions. Instead of just asking you to smile, I’ll have you play off each other to bring out your real smiles – not the forced ones from your 2nd-grade school picture.
I always encourage my couples to have an engagement session because it gives us the chance to work together before your wedding day. For those of you who are a little camera shy, it’s a nice way to get out your jitters before the big day. It also gives me a chance to get to know you better and develop a sense of comfort and trust so I’m not a stranger showing up on the wedding day.
Pinkie swear, it isn’t nearly as miserable as you think (I’m looking at you future grooms here!). After, we’ll sit down together to choose your favorites for your save the dates, wall prints, and your wedding day sign-in book!
