Documenting the short window of your life as a bride is essential because this crazy time is going to fly by! From the moment that ring slides onto your finger all the way through to your “I do’s”, an engagement is a fun-filled time of celebrations, planning, and moments you’ll never want to forget which is why engagement photos are a must!
The amount of parties that will be thrown in your honor and the décor to go with it is going to be A LOT! That’s why it’s a really good idea to stick to a single theme throughout your entire engagement. That way when it’s finally your big day you have tons of reception décor gathered up and lots of materials at your disposal – including copies of your engagement photos and other means of incorporating them into this special time.
Engagement photo shoots are so much fun! You get to know your wedding photographer, practice poses, and really get a feel for your style as a couple behind the camera. And once you get your photos back you can use them as more than just a wall decoration in your house, but as part of your wedding details as well.
