You and your fiancé will need some down time to be together during the planning process, so make sure you book an engagement session with your photographer.  You are probably thinking “well, I’ll have pictures from the wedding”.  Yes, you are correct.  However, they will be more formal and not as relaxed photos.  If you do engagement shots you and your future spouse can experiment and find what reflects both of you as a couple.  This is the time where you can have fun and enjoy being a “couple.”


Think outside the box- Try to write down different things that make you and your fiancé “unique” and special.  The photographer will want to capture you both as a couple.  What better way to do that than with places, objects, and things that reflect your personalities!

Book in advance- Many popular photographers are booked months in advance, so if you have a crush on a certain photographer then I would book him or her immediately after saying yes to your man!  Yes, even if it is months and months in advance.  Just book it, calendar it, and before you know it it will be time for you two to shine!
