Congratulations on your recent engagement!
With so much excitement and so many unknowns it can be overwhelming on where to start your wedding journey. Some couples choose to have a traditional engagement session, while others get a little creative with adventure engagements sessions. If you’re considering one this guide has some helpful information for your planning and research!
What Is An Adventure Engagement Session?
An adventure engagement session is a photoshoot that celebrates and highlights the recents news of your soon to be wedding. The adventure side of it is the chance to bring that celebration with you to the great outdoors!
Do I Use The Same Photographer For My Wedding Day?
Technically you don’t have to, but a lot of the value associated with getting engagement photos is to work with same photographer because trust has been established. They have a better idea of your relationship, personality, visions and expectations!
Reasons to consider an adventure engagement session
1. Get To Know Your Photographer
Photographer’s wear more than one hat when you look at the entire experience of an adventure engagement session from initial contact to final delivery. Before the big day, engagement photographs are a great way to get to know your photographer and establish a relationship. An adventure engagement session could help with your comfort in front of the camera and helps the photographer know your preferences and style.
2. Get Some Practice In
Engagement photographs allow you to practice posing and being at ease in front of the camera. An engagement shoot could help you feel more comfortable on your wedding day while capturing some beautiful photos.
3. Adventure Engagement Photo Uses
From wedding details to gifts – your engagement photos can be used in a variety of ways: Save-the-dates, wedding invites, gifts for family members, displays at home, or even a guest book.
4. It Reflects A Moment Of Your Lives
Engagement photographs capture a significant chapter of life and are a reminder of your love and dedication to one another. It’s the chance for you and your loved one to spend time together and celebrate your love in a way that makes your actual wedding day so much more real.
How Long Is An Adventure Engagement Session?
1-2 hours is normally a good amount of time to capture an adventure engagement session. Depending on the location/activity, an adventure engagement session could be longer, but normally a big adventure is saved for an intimate wedding or an adventure elopement.
How Many Photos Do I Get From An Adventure Engagement Session?
This will vary depending on the photographer, normally I average a minimum of 25 images per hour for an adventure engagement session. Other factors to consider are the location(s) and activity, etc.
