An Engagement session is included with all wedding packages. The name is a misnomer because the couple is already engaged before I ever meet them. This session is very important to me because it gives me a chance to work with the couple before the wedding and to get to know them better. I need to find out what they like and don't like. Does she like to be photographed from a certain angle, what do I have to do to get him to smile. I need to find out how I'm going to deal with height differences as well as to learn some back ground and the history of the couple.
This session is also their chance to get to know me. They need to gain confidence in my abilities and to trust me to make the photographs of their wedding day the best that they can be. I don't do a lot of posing. I tend to put the couple in a spot where the light is right and then just let them interact with each other. This session lets me learn if they need a little prompting from me or are they better by themselves.
