It seems that almost within the same moment of saying “I do” you start to think about your engagement and wedding photography too. One of the first things you probably thought about was having engagement photos done. With your wedding photography a close second on your list! Yes, wedding photos are so important. But engagement photos help capture the excitement of this all-too-quick moment in time. Just thinking about your future together keeps a smile on your face all day!
Why not capture that happiness in engagement photos? The next best thing about planning engagement and wedding photography simultaneously is that it gives you an opportunity to work with a wedding photographer before your actual wedding day. So here are some tips for making your engagement and wedding photography all you hope it will be.
As a natural candid photographer myself, I love capturing engagement and wedding photos that are a true reflection of you as individuals and as a couple. Don’t feel pressured to be a model or pose like that photo you saw on Pinterest or Instagram. The moments you want to remember forever are the ones where your personality shine through. Whether you’re being silly, crying happy tears or being romantic, your engagement and wedding photos should be a reflection of the true you.
Pick a meaningful location
In my previous blog post I talked all about engagement photo locations in Tallahassee. But if your special place isn’t on the list, that doesn’t mean I won’t capture your engagement and wedding photos there. Maybe there’s a coffee shop, a local park like the Tallahassee Garden Club or even a road that has significance to you as a couple. Let me know and we’ll make it happen!
Trust your photographer
Like I said before, don’t try to be Pinterest perfect. Those engagement and wedding photos you’re seeing are beautiful, yes, but they aren’t you and they most likely aren’t as lifestyle and candid as you may think. I’ve been an engagement and wedding photographer long enough to know the tricks of the trade and can spot fake, posed happiness from a mile away. You’ve hired me because you love my work, so let me use my expertise on you to capture organic candid photos.
So when you’re ready to schedule your engagement and wedding photos with me, remember just a few quick tips. To get those beautiful candid lifestyle shots just relax, enjoy the location you’ve chosen and remember to let go – I’m here for you and will use my knowledge and experience to capture engagement and wedding photos that are as beautiful as your love is!
