By doing your research of photographs for your wedding, you will necessarily hear about “engagement sessions”, “Love Session” or even “Engagement Session”. Quite little known in France a few years ago, it is now very common, and couples love it!
What’s an engagement session?
It is simply a couple photoshoot that takes place before the wedding. The name comes from the English translation “Engagment session”. Literally, engagement session in French.
What is his goal ?
The main idea is to take beautiful pictures of yourself before you are married. Few couples have real photos other than selfies. It’s also a real moment of exchange between us. For my part, it allows me to understand a little about your state of mind and your feelings about the camera. And you, it allows you to see how a photo shoot takes place with me. So when the wedding day arrives, there will be no more apprehension on that side. And I assure you it makes a huge difference!
If you are not necessarily comfortable with the idea of having your photo taken, this is also the perfect session. You will see how you can get natural, spontaneous, romantic photos, while having fun, and without really having the impression of posing, or of forcing yourself to “pretend”.
You will see that it is also a good time when you will be able to meet the two of you, and take a break in the organization of the marriage which can sometimes be intense. A breath of fresh air in sometimes busy lives.
For me, it will also be a time when I can get to know your personalities better, and offer things that suit you. Even if I like to get couples out of their “comfort zones”. And many couples discover each other in a completely different way (not without some fun)! I no longer count the number of couples who are rather reserved at the start, and who after an hour no longer want to stop, and better, offer tons of ideas, the most original one than the other! 🙂
How is this session going?
Depending on your personality, your desires, your possibilities, we will discuss what would be ideal for you. I will give you all the info and tips you need to make a session that suits you and matches your state of mind while adding my photographic style.
I will give you some avenues of reflection, without imposing on you places or ideas already established. I do not want to take photos of couples “in the chain”, but to make sessions unique to each couple. This is why your story is important.
Where can we do this session?
Absolutely anywhere. The only limit is your (our) imagination, and our agendas. Indoors for a cocooning session, or outdoors, here again, I will give you several lines of thought on how to approach the possible places.
My advice for a good session
Throughout the session, I obviously guide you, but the most important for you is not to play the models. Keep in mind that this is just a photo shoot. That fun after all (even if I keep in mind the purpose of the session). You just unplug the cables and let yourself go.
The little extra is that you can possibly use these photos for your wedding invitation, your save the date, a guest book, or even if you have set up a website.
