Welcome to Narrative Imagery's Engagement Page! We are thrilled to share with you the importance of engagement photos and how they can enhance your wedding experience. If you're still contemplating whether or not to have engagement photos taken, allow us to shed some light on the subject.
Engagement photos aren't just about capturing stunning images; they provide a multitude of benefits that extend beyond the final photographs. Here's why we believe engagement sessions are a must:
Building a Connection: Your wedding photographer plays an integral role in documenting one of the most important days of your life. By scheduling an engagement session, you have a unique opportunity to establish a connection with your photographer before your big day. This helps build trust, familiarity, and comfort, allowing us to better understand your personalities, preferences, and style as a couple.
Embracing Creativity: Engagement sessions are a chance to step outside the traditional wedding setting and explore a world of creativity. Together, we can experiment with various poses, settings, and themes, creating unique and playful images that truly capture your love story. These innovative ideas can then be seamlessly incorporated into your wedding day photography, adding an extra touch of personalization and charm.
Showcasing Your Unique Love: Every couple is one-of-a-kind, with their own love story, quirks, and chemistry. Engagement photos provide a canvas for us to celebrate your distinct personalities, allowing your love and connection to shine through. We'll work closely with you to capture genuine moments, laughter, and intimate gestures, reflecting the true essence of your relationship.
To cater to your specific needs, we offer three thoughtfully curated engagement packages, each varying in duration and services. We understand that every couple is different, and we're committed to tailoring our offerings to meet your expectations while staying within your budget. If none of our pre-designed packages suit your requirements, we're more than happy to create a customized package exclusively for you.
Here's the exciting part: if you choose to book both your engagement and wedding photography with us, we offer a special discount of 20% off any engagement package you select. It's our way of expressing gratitude for entrusting us with capturing your love journey from beginning to end.

When is the ideal time to schedule our Engagement Photos?
The timing of your Engagement Photos depends on how you plan to use them. If you intend to include them on Save the Date cards, I recommend scheduling your session at least 7-8 months before your wedding date. Keep in mind that September-October is a popular time for Engagement photos due to the stunning colors of the season. Consequently, these months tend to book up quickly, so early planning is key!
Where should we choose as the location for our Engagement Photos?
The choice is entirely yours! Whether you envision vibrant downtown shots or prefer the romantic backdrop of a lake with breathtaking sunset views, my goal is to capture your unique personalities in every image. Let's plan a location that truly reflects who you are as a couple.
Can we bring our furry friends (dogs) to the photoshoot?
Absolutely! Your engagement photos should be a reflection of you and what makes you happy as a couple. If that includes your adorable four-legged companions, bring them along! I do recommend having a friend or family member present to assist with the dogs during shots where they won't be included.
How many outfit changes are recommended for our Engagement Photos?
Multiple outfit changes are a fantastic idea! They add variety and allow you to showcase different sides of your personalities. Typically, planning for 2 outfit changes per hour is a good starting point. Don't forget to accessorize! Fun additions like bracelets, scarves, or hats can bring an extra touch of flair to your photos. For outfit inspiration and accessory ideas, feel free to check out my dedicated Pinterest board.
Is it necessary to have prints made of our photos?
In my opinion, yes! Consider this example: After my grandparents passed away, I had countless photographs of my grandmother from her time in France before World War II. But imagine if all those images were stored on a floppy disk. I would have lost a vital part of my family's history. DVD's, flash drives, and even computers have limited lifespans. Professionally made prints, however, are designed to stand the test of time and preserve your family's story for generations to come.
These FAQs cover some of the most common questions I receive. If you have any additional inquiries (which I hope you do!), let's meet for coffee! I would love to have a personal meeting to ensure all your questions are answered and to get to know both of you better.
