You just got engaged and are ready to start booking everything— the venue, the cake, photographer, videographer, planner, etc! When you reach out to photographers, you start to notice a trend. Some offer engagements with their packages, some offer bridals, and others offer both. Now you’re confused, but don’t worry! We’re here to help!
At Three Twenty Studio, we offer engagements or bridals with all of our collections. And in our largest collection, we offer both. We do this for a number of reasons. In this blog, we hope to help you out in determining which option is best for you!
Your engagement period is one of the most important times of your life, and capturing those cherishable moments with a photographer is such a great idea! It’s a great opportunity to get pictures of the beautiful ring your partner spent so much time, love and probably money picking out for you. These are also great pictures to announce your engagement, include in your save the date, wedding invitations to send to your family and friends, and have on display at your reception. It’s also a great time to get comfortable in front of the camera with your partner before the big day. Sometimes taking romantic and PDA pictures can be awkward in front of other people, but engagement pictures can break the ice between the two of you and your photographer.
A major part of a wedding is the wedding dress. There is so much thought, love, money and time put into finding the perfect dress, and you should be able to wear it more than once. Taking Bridals is another way you’re able to put on that beautiful dress and take some portraits. They’re also a great time to have a test day for hair and makeup and make sure everything turns out how you’d like it. It’s an opportunity for your look to be perfected before the big day. Bridals are also such a great thing to print out on a canvas and display at your reception. These pictures can also be amazing gifts to your parents, your new spouse, or to display in your house!
Both of these sessions have such importance when planning everything for your wedding! That’s why it’s important to factor in these points about each session when considering which sessions you want to do! This is such a memorable time and everything should be perfect. An engagement session and a bridal session can help tie everything together, and you will not regret these sessions!
