When To Take Engagement Photos

The best time to take engagement photos is usually within the first 3 months of getting engaged. This way you can get to know your photographer better and become comfortable in front of the camera. Engagement Session’s are a great way to test run how it feels to be the subject of a photo shoot. For some clients, posing will come naturally, for others it takes some getting use to. Working with your photographer during the engagement session is a great practice run for your wedding day.
