Engagement photography in Kitchener-Waterloo has never been so important. This important step for couples seeking a Kitchener Wedding Photographer has many benefits and, with a few simple tips, any engaged couple can conquer this session. A few years ago engagement photos became less popular, mainly for budget reason, but professional photography studios still encourage the time in front of the camera to allow as it’s an important component of the wedding photography experience.
Learn Direction In Front Of The Camera
On your wedding day, everyone will be full of excitement, maybe a few adult beverages, and it can be difficult for the bride and groom to really focus on the direction given by their wedding photographer. Leaning away from the camera, giving a sultry look, or “turtling” are all made much much easier on the day of your wedding once you’ve spent time learning directly from in front of the photographer’s camera. A direction that typically will be learned during the engagement photography session.
Engaged Couple & Photographer Fit
As a professional photography studio who has been based in Guelph (just outside of Kitchener), our experience has helped us deal with every type of client. From a shy groom to a bridezilla, from an attention seeking bridesmaid to a groomsman who started celebrating way too early, we’ve had our fair share of interactions on the wedding day. The engagement session serves as an investigation into the compatibility between you and your engagement photographer. It allows you to see first-hand everything from how they provide direction to their ability to arrive on time.
Engagement Photography Deliverables
Regardless of if your working with a 20-year-old studio delivering proof books, a 10-year-old studio still delivering everything on a DVD, or a modern studio providing a full-service approach, this is your opportunity to test the photographer’s timelines and quality. At our studio, couples see their fully edited engagement images two-weeks after the session. They remember the day on a large-screen television in a warm studio located in Downtown Guelph with plenty of food and drinks in front of them. To our studio, this is how it should be done. But you can use this time to test your photographer. Did two weeks really mean two weeks, or did it become four? You should also see the same quality of work found in their engagement photography portfolio. A big difference might spell for big trouble on your wedding day.
