If you’re planning a wedding, you may be wondering whether or not to invest in engagement photos. While they may seem like an unnecessary expense, there are actually several reasons why engagement photos are a must-have for any couple. Here are just a few:
1. Get comfortable in front of the camera
For many people, being in front of a camera can be a little nerve-wracking. By taking engagement photos, you’ll have a chance to get comfortable with your photographer and practice posing and smiling. This can help you feel more relaxed and natural on your wedding day.
2. Showcase your personality
Engagement photos are a great way to showcase your personality as a couple. You can choose a location or theme that reflects your interests or style, and incorporate props or outfits that show off your unique personalities. These photos can be a fun and memorable way to capture your love story.
3. Create save-the-date cards and wedding decor
Engagement photos are perfect for creating save-the-date cards and other wedding decor. You can use your favorite photos to design custom cards or even display them at your wedding reception. These photos can add a personal touch to your wedding and make it feel even more special.
4. Get to know your photographer
Your wedding photographer will be spending a lot of time with you on your big day, so it’s important to choose someone you feel comfortable with. By taking engagement photos, you’ll have a chance to get to know your photographer and their shooting style. This can help you build a rapport and ensure that you get the best possible photos on your wedding day.
Overall, engagement photos are a must-have for any couple. They provide a chance to get comfortable in front of the camera, showcase your personality, create custom wedding decor, and get to know your photographer.

“If we could give Amanda a 10 stars, we would! She did our SF City Hall wedding photos. We first met her through FaceTime and we loved her energy instantly. She was such an amazing communicator though email, FaceTime, and in person. She is so patient in coordinating with us and our poses throughout our special day and we are so grateful because we are not the post natural at posing for photos haha! AND BOY DID OUR PHOTOS TURN OUT GORGEOUS! Soft, Airy, Romantic Perfection! We would definitely recommend Amanda and her team for anyone who is looking for a photographer to capture their beautiful day! We can’t wait to work with her again!”
