I do as much as possible to educate and prep my brides for their engagement session. It is such a huge part of the fun of being engaged - plus it's essential in prepping for the wedding day. (Who wants a stranger showing up to shoot their wedding?)
It's the time I get to become friends with my brides and grooms. I get to know their personalities, likes and dislikes, the things that make them them. Knowing my couples helps me better tell their love story. I want each couple to feel like and know they were understood, and for their images to tell true stories of who they are as individuals and as one.
Below is the PDF I share with my brides -- it's finally making its way to the blog. (better late than never?)
I hope this information helps your prep for your engagement session - no matter who you hire to tell your story. lots of love, M
