While Engagement Shootings, which are also called E-Sessions or Pre-Wedding Shoots, are quite popular in other countries, they are still rather uncommon in Germany. Actually, engagement shootings offer a lot of advantages. It’s not only a perfect occasion to gather some camera experience before the actual wedding date. Many couples actually use pictures created during an engagement shooting for their save-the-date cards or wedding invitations. Sometimes pictures from engagement sessions are also included in slideshows presented to the wedding party during dinner.
In contrast to the Asian market, where the bridal dress is also included in engagement sessions, in Europe and the US we prefer to shoot in everyday clothes. Of course, such a shooting also provides many nice memories for you and your family in the future. In times of mobile selfies with bad quality and limited compositions this is more important than ever before.
A lot of my customers spent a time period abroad for their job. This also provides a perfect occasion for an engagement shooting. For engagement shootings I’ve already travelled half-way around the world.
