engagement sessions: why bother? … [faq]

Lately I’ve had a few people ask me about engagement sessions (also known as “e-sessions” or “e-shoots”) … why I include them in my wedding package … whether they’re negotiable … etc.

So, I thought I’d explain the thinking behind them.

It’s pretty simple, really. Your wedding day is important. So why would you want to spend yours with a photographer you barely know?

E-sessions provide a great opportunity for us to become friends. We spend an hour or two somewhere you and your Significant Other like being together. We chat lots and take a few photos. And then when your wedding day comes around, you find it easy to relax around me, and I know more about the story I’m telling!

And as an added bonus, you get some nice photos to use on invites, programs, Facebook, etc. 🙂
