AMWPhotos includes engagement sessions in all of our packages and we have a blast doing them! We love getting to know our couples outside the hustle and bustle of your wedding day. Its a time for us to talk one on one, for us to hear about how you met, all the planning you’re putting in to your special day as well as any expectations you may have for your wedding day. Wedding days can be very hectic, engagement sessions are a great way to break the ice so to speak so that when we arrive on your wedding day it doesn’t feel like we’re meeting for the very first time. While Matt and I are interacting with you during your engagement session we are taking time to figure out what your like in front of the camera; what the best angles are, what makes you two laugh and what makes you uncomfortable so that we can really make the most of our time with you on your wedding day. Most importantly the session is a great way to take some time away from the sometimes stressful planning and walk away with a ton of playful, beautiful photos! You can do some pretty cool things with these photographs beside just having them to frame and hang on your walls. Hear are a few ideas; Use them on your Wedding Website Announcements for the local newspaper Guestbooks: AMWPhotos offers custom designed albums laid out in such a way that guests can write their names and notes of congratulations on the pages next to these beautiful photographs. This is a great way to combine your photographs with messages from people you care about Invitations or Save The Dates The list goes on with many ways to incorporate them in to your wedding reception or gifts for your guests. Just a couple quick tips to make the most of your engagement sessions; Try to plan your engagement session on the same day as the trial run for your hair/makeup, wear something that reflects who you are; don’t feel like you have to get dressed up if you’re more of a t-shirt and jeans type of person also don’t feel like the two of you have to match perfectly. The location is up to you, we suggest picking a location that means something to you. We encourage all of our couples to take advantage of our engagement sessions included in our wedding collections!
