The Engagement Session is an opportunity for the two of you to get some candid casual pictures of yourselves, to spend some time together, to connect with the photographer, and to talk a bit more about the upcoming event. Very often the couples use the pictures to create “save the date cards”, or a book for good wishes for the wedding, or as a part of their love story slideshow for the wedding. Or it is just some more pictures for a family album!
Usually engagement pictures are taken before the wedding, a month or two prior to the wedding date, or as soon as the couple books the photographer, if there are plans to use the pictures for save the date cards. The session usually lasts from one hour to 1.5 hours.
Where is a good place to take your engagement session pictures? The answer is - it depends – there are couples who know exactly where they want to take engagement pictures based on their romantic history, choosing a place of their first date, or some other significant location. Others just choose a scenic place in Vancouver, such as Stanley Park, Lion`s Gate bridge, Coal Harbour, Queen Elisabeth’s Park, Van Dusen Park, Whytecliff Park, Vancouver Library Building, Granville street, Capilano/Lynn Valley suspension bridges and others. You may look at the list above for ideas or suggest your own. There could also be some activities integrated into the shoot, for example, biking, rollerblading, golf, a game of tennis…
