Engagement photos have traditionally been created at the time of your actually engagement. This was the case many years ago when men proposed to their girlfriends in front of family and friends. While this still happens (and I recommend you hire me to capture this beautiful and memorable moment if you aren’t engaged yet!), more often than not, engagement photo sessions occur weeks and months after the actual proposal took place. So… Why Take Engagement Photos? Among other reasons, engagement photos are now used to announce the engagement to family and friends via cards, letters, social media postings, etc. Here are other ways engagement photos are used:
Create a personal wedding website with photos from the engagement session, and other important wedding information for your family and guests
Create prints and canvases for home decoration.
Create prints or canvases to decorate your reception venue, or add as centerpieces
Create a large print/canvas as a guest sign-in image with (usually place on a table or easel – remember to bring markers!).
Create a sign-in album for your guests.
