I had a wonderful phone call today – from a girl who’s getting married and would like to talk to us about doing her photography.
Now that call in itself is not all that unusual – after all, wedding photography is a big part of what we do. The couple found out about us during another wedding – which is fantastic. That means they’ve seen us work, and have seen the sort of images that we produce. They already know us in this regard. She made a point of the fact that she loved the engagement session photos of the couple, which we distributed at the wedding. In fact she loved them so much she grabbed as many of the cards as she could so that she had all the photos!
BUT! Then she confused me a bit by saying “What if we don’t want an engagement session? I don’t see the point.”
I didn’t stay confused for long, and neither did she. This is one of my favourite questions – which is a good thing because I get it a lot!
So – here’s why you must have an engagement session before your wedding!
