Use Creativitiy with Engagement Photo Sessions

A great photographer is a must have at your wedding! I think I have probably said that twenty times before on this blog. When you are doing your planning, please do not skimp on your wedding photos, because you will live to regret it. Trust me! But anyway, I'll get off of my photography soapbox now!

Most photographers offer engagement sessions in their various packages. This is a service you absolutely must take advantage of. You and your fiance get the opportunity to take photos before all of the formal wedding stuff. So these sessions are designed to be fun and creative. The fun and creative part also is going to depend on your photographer. So, if you are looking to have a little fun with your pictures make sure you choose a photographer that can accommodate that request. Take time and look at their photos, this will definitely tell you if they have that creative eye, you're looking for.

For instance if you guys met at an ice cream shop, why not take some shots where you met? Consider wardrobe changes if your photographer allows it. Just use this time to have fun and let the camera capture it all.

Here is a shoot recently done by the fabulous Kristin Vining! The bride-to-be is a librarian and the groom-to-be is a local theater actor. The shoot was done at the Main Library and the Children's Theater. See, be creative! Visit Kristin's Blog for more pics from this shoot.
