How an Engagement Session Can Improve Your Wedding Photography Experience

Did you know every single wedding package we offer here at Saiaf Films includes a complimentary engagement session?

The truth is: We love engagement photographs. They are among our favorite parts of the entire wedding planning process.

Engagement sessions with your Most Affordable Glendale Wedding Photographer can make or break your photography experience. We truly believe that they are SO important not only for documenting the entire wedding, but also for improving how you feel in front of the camera.

1. You Learn How to Pose

Every Scottsdale Best Wedding Videographer is different. Their shooting-style, editing, process and most importantly, in this instance, their preferred poses. Some photographers incorporate prompts that allow for natural, candid photos, while others will tell you EXACTLY what to do with your arms, hands, legs, face, eyes, etc. Either way, it’s important to feel comfortable posing with your wedding photographer and learn how their process works.

2. You Get Comfortable Being Photographed Together

How often do you go out in the middle of a field and snuggle together while someone takes your pictures? Unless you are professional models, the answer is probably never. Being photographed as a couple is not an everyday kind of stuff; it takes getting used to to look nice and natural in photos.

3. Engagement Sessions Help Save Time on the Actual Wedding Day

Learning your photographer’s style and knowing your flattering angles and poses in advance allows your Glendale Arizona Best Wedding Videography to take pictures quickly on the wedding day, rather than wasting time instructing or teaching you how to pose. We have run into instances where we only have 10 minutes with a couple on their wedding day due to running late and getting behind schedule. Thanks to the engagement session, we were still able to capture tons of images with variation, because the couple was prepared and familiar with how having their images works.

4. You Can Use the Photos as Additional Wedding Day Decor

There is something really tacky about using a smartphone selfie on a Save-The-Date, right? That beauty deserves a professional photograph. As does your wedding website, wedding decors, or even your Grandmother’s fridge magnet!

5. They’re Fun

Engagement sessions are fun. It’s fun to dress up. It’s fun to get to know your photographer. It’s fun to just frolic, be all giddy and in love. It’s fun to laugh together. It’s fun to enjoy this season of life. It’s fun to have the Best Scottsdale Wedding Photography follow you around with a fancy camera, rather than a friend with an iPhone taking photos of you, all looking awkward.
