Do I Need An Engagement Session? | Seattle Wedding Photographer Janet Lin Photography
My wedding collections include the option to schedule a complimentary engagement session because I believe that they are a VITAL part of the wedding experience. In a way, the engagement session is our ‘practice run’ together! It is absolutely invaluable.
During your engagement session, you’ll have the chance to get to know me and to experience how I shoot and how I handle posing and lighting. On the other hand, I’ll get to know you and what works best for you when you’re being photographed. This session will make a HUGE impact on how the wedding day flows because I’ll arrive on your wedding day already knowing how you two interact and how to photograph you in a genuine way. You’ll know what to expect from me, get some of those nervous jitters out, and gain some confidence behind the camera before your big day. You will feel like such a pro on your wedding day and you’ll both be more comfortable in front of the camera and working with me than you otherwise would have.
Your engagement session can be scheduled anytime before your wedding day. I normally suggest scheduling at least 3 months in advance to avoid stress that inevitably surfaces as the day grows near. I’ll provide you with a list of my favorite locations for engagement sessions, but will welcome your ideas, too! If there is a location that is really special or unique to you as a couple, (your family has a sailboat you love to spend time on, your first date was at a rooftop bar in Seattle, you spend time together on the family farm, or you just really want to make a trip out of your engagement session and go to x destination) don’t hesitate to share your ideas with me. I’m excited to create an engagement session experience that is unique to you and your love story, and that makes you feel empowered and prepared for the photography portion of your wedding day, too.
