Romance is in the air and the anticipation of a lifetime together comes to a crescendo in the fleeting weeks leading up to your wedding, causing you to wonder: Is an engagement shoot really necessary? After all, don’t the wedding pictures represent the beginning of our lives together?
1) This time allows you, as a couple, to get comfortable in front of the camera with me, and figure out how we work best together before the main event.
2) You can test your makeup artist and showcase your personalities in a more casual setting, while creating some fun, memorable images for wall portraits, your wedding sign-in book, guest signature board and Thank You cards (shot early enough, I can also provide the images for your Save the Date cards and invitations).
3) Engagement portraits also add another dimension to your wedding album, chronicling your story from frolicking fiancées to husband and wife.
4) Best of all, you can remember this special time forever with personal memories of just the two of you, away from the throngs of loved ones and friends.
I will strive to accommodate your schedule in anyway I can, but please allow 6 months in advance of your wedding for the optimal use and enjoyment of and from your images.
When Angela and Roman booked me for their wedding, from the start, we hit it off. I told them that their package include an engagement session, so we can get to know each other. I suggest a romantic picnic at their wedding venue, Wenkenhof in Basel. It was a lovely summer day, Angela got her hair done at Aveda (Brides can have their test makeup & hair done on the same day of the engagement session). They brought along their favourite champagne, cheese, bread, and strawberries. Roman surprised Angela with her favourite flower. The session was so lovely and romantic. This couple is so beautiful, they are so much in love and you can feel that they are so perfect for each other.
