What exactly is an engagement session? In most cases it is a casual photo shoot with your photographer. It is an opportunity for you to be photographed prior to your wedding, and get to know your photographer and see images of yourselves before the wedding day. The photographer you hired to capture your wedding images should be the same individual who shoots your engagement photographs. The idea is to build rapport and feel comfortable with the person taking your wedding photographs.

Try to get your engagement pictures taken soon after you hire your photographer, not weeks before the wedding. By arranging your session early, you will have the opportunity to enjoy your images during most of your engagement period. Should you wait until the wedding is close at hand, engagement photos will seem like one more thing to be done and little time to do it. The engagement session should be light and playful with plenty of time to capture just the right moments.

To help make these images special, pick a location that has some significance to you both. It could be the place where you got engaged or a first date. The location could be a place as simple as your home, a restaurant, museum, or maybe the college where you met. If you can’t think of anything, ask your photographer for advice. He or she will most likely know some picturesque settings nearby such as beaches, a national park, or even surprise you with a location you never would have considered on your own.

Another advantage to being photographed prior to your wedding day is the opportunity for the bride to have a test run done on her make-up. Set up an appointment with the person doing your make-up for the wedding right before your engagement shoot. This way you will get to see how your make-up will look, not only in the mirror but how it will photograph. If there are adjustments to be made, it will not be too late.

Wedding Kure Beach North Carolina

Wedding at Kure Beach North Carolina. It was very windy but the wedding on Kure Beach in May between Amanda and Jason was a beautiful celebration.

They came to the Wilmington area from Winston -Salem to get married on the beach just a few hundred yards from the Kure Beach Pier.

The sunset wedding was very romantic and Jason and Amanda combined two families to make one. Congratulations Amanda and Jason!

Moon rising on the Intra-Coastal Waterway at Wrightsville Beach

It has been some time since our last blog post. We have been very busy meeting with clients and designing wedding albums from winter weddings.

We also just got back from attending a fantastic photography convention in Las Vegas  at WPPI, which was very inspirational and exciting to see and share ideas and techniques with some of the 16,000 attendees.

Recently we createdf these images from the Wrightsville Beach Draw Bridge which is over the Intracoastal Waterway. If you are interested in purchasing a custom print from one of these images we can print in sizes 24×30, 20×24, 16×20, 11×14 to 8×10 please email us.
