Complimentary Engagement Shoot

Malyssa, on April 18, 2022 at 18:03 Posted in Before the wedding 0 12

Hi all and happy Monday! Smiley star

Question for those of you who have a complimentary engagement shoot in your photography package (or those who have done this already)...

When did you book your shoot? I know this is something I can plan with my photographer, but curious what everyone else planned.

I know we wanted to wait for warmed weather and for my FH to be done school, and thankfully that time is finally upon us - so now its on my mind!

    We are booking our engagement shoot for June or July when the photographer can fit us in. I want to put them on our website and then publish it. Our wedding is September 24,2023 so lots of time to get it all done.

    We are doing ours on Monday because it's my birthday 馃槉 Two birds, one stone. I'll already be all dolled up to go to dinner. Plus by then the spring weather will have finally set in! We're starting in the Public Gardens and then walking out way through the city with our photographers and then finishing at home so we can have some "family shots" with our two cats LOL. It's going to be beautiful!

    We did ours in winter, about 2 weeks before Christmas (it turned out to be the 1st anniversary of our engagement!). We chose December because we both love Christmas and wanted the Christmas light shots in our engagement photos. The results were beautiful and we were very happy - just be sure to dress warmly if you choose winter engagement pictures!

    We had our shoot a year before our wedding because the wedding itself was postponed due to covid. We purposely found locations that were different from our wedding venue to provide a contrast and to highlight our personalities.

    So I got engaged Dec 2020. I won a free engagement shoot that we did Feb 2021. Then when we booked our wedding photographer it included engagement photos. I wanted summer engagement photos so we booked for August 2021 (Actually on our last anniversary before the wedding but had to reschedule cause of weather) then our wedding is May 2022.

    This is going to be long winded lol
    Our wedding is in September. My photographer lives in Alberta. So when we traveled from BC to Alberta for my wedding dress try on appointments, I thought it would be a perfect time to do our engagement shoot since we were already there for a week. I also wanted our save the dates to include our engagement photos!
    It definitely fit our fall vibe because everything was organgey in the background!

    We were having a winter wedding so wanted a different season for our engagement shoot; we chose fall. We also took the photos in the same location (the park across from our venue). We ended up getting legally married in the park due to covid so it became very special.
