I am constantly saying it, and I can't express it enough! Make sure that when you hire a wedding photographer, you also have them do some engagement shots for you! Spending an hour with your photographer before your big day will help you to feel more comfortable and help your photographer get to know you a little bit better so that they can deliver a more personal experience to you!
I include an engagement session in nearly every wedding day package. I absolutely love getting to know my wedding couples and seeing them interact before the day of their wedding!
The images from your session are great for "save the dates" or to display at your wedding! A great trend over the past few years has been incorporating an image of the bride and groom on each table at the wedding in lieu or in addition to table numbers!
