Why shoot an engagement session ?
The engagement session is included in all my wedding packages. To me this is just plain common sense. I wouldn’t shoot a wedding if I have not done the engagement session with the couple. Why do I think this is so important ?
Usually brides contact me to arrange a meeting and discuss what I can do as a photographer. If the couple is happy, they sign an agreement with me and then we’ll see each other again in say, 6 months or 1 year, on their wedding day ! To me it feels strange because right away I have to start shooting people I haven’t seen for such a long time and with whom I have only been through an administrative boring task (signing the agreement). Moreover, during the portrait session there may be some uneasiness due to the lack of proximity between the couple and the photographer.
Benefits of the engagement session
Hence, the engagement session makes a lot of sense. First it is a good occasion to spend time with the couple before the wedding day (but not too long before). It is a fun moment and you will get accustomed to being photographed by me. Ultimately, you will a lot more at ease during the wedding portraits shooting on the day of your wedding.
Regarding the location, the session will take place in Luxembourg. Nevertheless, it is of course possible to do it elsewhere, even abroad. Get in touch with me if you want to discuss your project with me !
The location is indeed important. Whether this is the place you where you met each other, or any other place that reminds you of some special memories. If you have no preferences, I will be able to suggest a few nice places around Luxembourg-city !
