Why you should get Engagement Portraits Done

Wohoo!! So you're significant other finally popped the question! You're filled with excitement planning your big day, telling your friends & family members and probably organizing a board on pinterest with all of your wedding favorites and tips. Maybe your special someone isn't a fan of pictures or you'd like to save some money and have a friend take some pictures with their cellphone, here are some reasons why you should hire a professional photographer and have your engagement portraits taken! 

1. You'll get sweet photos of yourself.

But seriously. Who doesn't like some sweet new photos you can post on social media?! New profile picture? I think so. 

2. It'll give you the chance to reconnect. 

Wedding planning can get stressful. Engagement portraits are the opportunity to get all snuggly with your person! I love a good romantic shot. 

3. You'll be more comfortable in front of the camera on your wedding day.

This one is a biggie. It's pretty common for men to be uncomfortable in front of the camera or to dread a session. But once meeting your photographer it's usually way more relaxed than you expected. It's fun and really not bad at all! You won't be nervous about posing on your wedding day together if you've had your portraits taken together previously. 

4. It's the chance to see how your wedding photographer works.

Your wedding photographer follows you around a lot on your wedding day. It's much more comfortable if you feel like you know their personality and how they work.
