Engagement Photos are a big part of each wedding contract with Essence Photography. I believe in offering a complimentary engagement session to all my bride and grooms. It’s a great way to get to know each other. Very often couples bring their pets with them to the shoot and that really personalizes it. Props such as wedding date signs are a great way to personalize the shoot too. Engagement sessions are taken at either area parks or locations that are special to the couple. My favorite two places are Lockridge Furnace Museum and Wehr’s Dam in Orefield. Downtown Bethlehem is great too! I always ask the couple, “What do you like to do together?” The answer often drives the direction the shoot takes.
What to do after the session
After the engagement session, Essence offers lots of options for the engagement photos. Brides really appreciate Essence’s ability to create custom Save the Date cards from their session. I design the cards right in front of the couple and with their input, each Save the Date is totally unique. Another option for engagement photos is creating a guest signing book for the couple. I am able to create a guest signing book that is color coordinated with your wedding colors to create a total package for the day.
