Engagement Photos are a great way to warm up to the camera, and your photographer before your wedding day. Whenever possible, I recommend scheduling an engagement photography session with your wedding photographer. We’re also available for travel outside of the state for the out-of-towners. These engagements can be also be used as save the dates and accompany your wedding invitation. They are also fun to include as a guest sign in book. While taking Jackson Hole engagement photos isn’t always in the cards for couples, here is why an engagement session is so important!
Celebrate Your Engagement
Your engagement is worth celebrating with incredible photos. This is a huge step in your life and documenting this period in your life is exciting. It’s a time to soak in the love you share with each other and commemorate everything that led you to this moment. Use this as an opportunity to visit Jackson Hole and meet your other vendors in person too.
Get Comfortable with your Wedding Photographer
This is my number one reason for doing engagement photos. Booking a photo session with your Jackson Hole wedding photographer will allow us to meet in person before your big day! Of course we do phone calls and stay in touch through emails too. But an engagement session is on another level! We get to work together on poses and find the ones you feel the most confident in and love to showcase. This is great preparation for your wedding day. It let’s us focus on those poses and moments that you loved, and skip out on ones you just weren’t feeling!
Test out your Hair and Makeup artist before the wedding day
Because the vendors we work with and recommend are all so professional and phenomenal at their jobs, we know you’re going to look incredible! But let’s make sure you are confident in your makeup and hair choices. This is the perfect time for a trial run. While you likely won’t sport all the same styles for engagement photos and wedding day pictures, you can make sure you won’t have a reaction to anything being used on your face. You can also make sure that your beauty artist can replicate the looks you love. And that your hair and makeup will stay in place no matter what you put it through.
Use the Photos with Invites
Your Jackson Hole engagement photos can be utilized for your save the dates and wedding invitation or announcement. They are a great way to share the news with everyone near and far. Even though couples may date for years, they don’t always have professional photos together. So this is a great time to start! Even if you’re not sending out official announcements, they can be used for social media sharing too.
Create and Sign in Book with Engagement Photos
One of the best ways to include your engagement photos into your wedding day is through a sign in book! I love this sign in book more than a traditional one, because it will always remain meaningful to you. A book full of signatures might not hold it’s value in your heart. But a book with your engagement pictures and notes written from friends and family surely will.
