Atlanta Engagement Photographer

Atlanta Engagement Photographer Portfolio

Engagement photography is one of the most misunderstood parts of wedding photography.  A lot of people ask me why having an engagement photography session is important.  It seems nobody is buying the thing they say on all the wedding blogs about practicing for wedding day.  The truth is, it is very helpful to have a trial run of your wedding photographer, in much the same way that it really helps to try on whatever you plan to wear to your wedding before the morning of the wedding.  But that’s not the reason I think engagement photography is important.  I think you should make engagement photos because you’re going to want remember what you’re like right now.  You’re going to want to remember that twinkle in his eye.  You’re going to want to remember the softness in her smile when she looks at you.  In fact, I wrote about it on my blog.  You should go read my article about why you should have engagement photography. It won’t hurt, and it’s a good way for you to see how smart I am too.  (Remember, on my website, every photo is a link to it’s original blog post.  So if you see an image you like, click on it to see more.
