Are engagement photos really needed?

Jul 25, 2018

Let Aris Affairs Photography create your wedding story beginning with your engagement photo shoot in Prescott.He proposed and you said yes! Now the planning begins. One of the questions that arises is whether engagement photos are necessary. Aris Affairs Photography, your local Prescott wedding photographer, is convinced that engagement photos are extremely important for many reasons.

An engagement photo session is not just about having photographs to mark the occasion. Here is why it is much more:

  • An engagement session starts with a celebration and a romantic, special period of time in the lives of you and your partner. It is also a great time to learn about your photographer and for your photographer to learn about you as individuals and as a couple. This, in itself, is a good reason for an engagement photo session.
  • By having your photographer photograph your engagement and your wedding day, a story unfolds. A good photographer will provide consistency in this story from the engagement to the wedding day.
  • Practice makes perfect! Unless you’re a trained actor, it can be hard to suddenly be in front of a camera and feel relaxed and simply be yourself. A good photographer will have many tips and tricks to show you both how to loosen up and not just kiss. After shooting the engagement session, the couple will feel all the more comfortable on the big day.

By getting in front of the camera and having fun with your partner, your wedding experience will be more relaxed and comfortable. Your wedding photo album should be beautiful, fun, and exciting. Plus, it should tell a story from your engagement through your wedding day. Engagement photos are the beginning of your story. Make sure to get your ideas together, and call your local Prescott photographer, Aris Affairs Photography at 928-642-4049.
