There are many factors to consider when planning your engagement photos. You want to get the timing right and I’m here to help! Even if you have some dates in mind, this is a great time to make sure it works with your overall wedding goals. Take into consideration the following, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions:
Displaying your engagement photos at your wedding:
I love seeing engagement photos at weddings! There are some truly beautiful and creative ways to display them. If you’d like outdoor photos, plan your engagement session in the season that you are having your wedding. This way, the photos will match your decor.
Book Your Engagement Session Early!
If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, it’s typical to schedule your engagement photos during the dry season. This also happens to be the busiest time for wedding photographers. Book early to secure your date! Keep in mind that weekdays may be your best bet, so you may need to book time off work.
Have a Backup Date
We all know that the weather can be pretty crazy! A little rain never scared this girl, but if it’s a downpour, we will reschedule to your trusty backup date. FYI I looove to shoot on windy and dramatically cloudy days, so I will only reschedule if the weather will damage my equipment, or if you are not comfortable in the environment.
Save the Date!
Are you using your engagement photos for Save the Dates? What about a wedding guestbook or photo display? I will have your photos edited within 10-14 days. Remember that it also takes time to design and print your products and to have them shipped. Allow time for the process so that you can get the Save the Dates to your guests on time.
A wedding slideshow is another great way of displaying your engagement photos. Good thing I include one with every engagement! You’ll receive a slideshow along with your images, which you can use at your wedding as well. This is a great, stress free option if you’re running low on time.
