Why Engagement Sessions are Important ~ Kokomo Indiana Wedding Photographer

Psssst. Our engagement sessions are free.

Wait wahh?

Yup. They are free. As in zip. zilch. nada.

Why? Because we know that they are an important tool. When a couple books their wedding with us, it’s the first step in preparing for the success of their wedding day. Here’s why we offer free engagement sessions to all of our JNP wedding couples.

1. We get to know each other.

From intros to planning, you’ll have multiple meetings and consultations with us before your wedding. But no matter how much time we get to spending time together, the *best* way to build a relationship with you is to hang out together in a photography setting. You’ll be able to see how we work and we will be able to see how you naturally pose together. The more we know about you and your fiancé, the more prepared we will be for your wedding day.

2. It builds your confidence.

We know how intimidating it is to be in front of the camera. It can be scary! Especially if it’s your first time. That’s why it is so much better if your first time in front of the camera is at your engagement session instead of your wedding day. You will have plenty of time to get comfortable, relax, and enjoy yourself. By the time your wedding comes around, you’ll be a professional! You’ll be that much more comfortable in front of the camera and your wedding day will be a breeze.

Tip: This is an excellent time to use that pre wedding hair and makeup trial to feel and look your best. Give yourself an excuse to get all dolled up. Make a date night of it! You’ll find yourself looking forward to a fun evening out with your fiancé.

3. They make the best wedding details.

Most guests agree that the best wedding decor is unique, tasteful, and reflective of the couples interests. What better way to tick off all 3 of those requirements than with a framed display of your engagement photos as part of your wedding decor! Not only is this a beautiful way to add the *perfect* touch of personal detail to your wedding day, it’s also very inexpensive. Plus, those gorgeous frames aren’t just wedding decor. They can be display for years to come after your wedding day is over.

Tip: Framed engagement photos are excellent wedding day gifts. At the end of the night, Mom, Dad, Grandma, and Grandpa will squeal with pride if you tell them to take home their favorite.

4. This time is fleeting.

Being engaged is a time of transition and it is a milestone worth celebrating. You’ve found the one! You are head over heels in love! You are getting married! You are transitioning from dating life to married life. It’s such a happy, exciting time. Having engagement pictures taken can be a wonderful way to preserve memories of this brief period of life, so that you can look back on them for years to come.
