Chris & Jen's Family Session

Chris & Jen's Family Session 

As a photographer engagement sessions prior to the bride & grooms wedding day is so important for many reasons. Not all brides and grooms are interested in having an engagement session, but I'll explain why I think it's a good idea.
1. You get to know each other before your big day. This way on your wedding day it's like having a friend photographing you, not a stranger. 
2. Your photographer gets to see you behind the lens prior to your wedding day. Why is this important?   For me, I know how to position you as a couple, what works & what doesn't work has already been set during your engagement shoot. Skin tones can be challenging at times, this will be ironed out too.  Your photographer will know how comfortable you are having your picture taken, or at least get you prepared for your big day. This way you will know what to expect.  
3. Simply it's just fun! Engagement shoots should be relaxed, enjoyable & give you photos you can cherish forever. 
Chris & Jen had a fun engagement session in the Byward Market in September, we had a blast! When they asked me to photograph their family as well, I was thrilled. This gives us the opportunity to all meet prior to Chris & Jen's wedding in May. Meeting his parents, sister, brother in-law and two adorable children was a great! I look forward to seeing all of you again in May :)
