You have just become engaged and you immediately realize you need to plan a wedding and all the thousand details involved. In the excitement, you may think that certain traditions like engagement photos are not important, but actually, engagement photos are very important and provide a lasting memory. If you have professional engagement photos taken, you will have the chance to get to know your photographer and he will learn about you as a couple. This will make the wedding day photography go much smoother and provide the photographer with insight into your personalities.

Engagement photos should reflect your personality and can be much more informal than wedding photos. You may choose to have your pictures taken where you first met, where you had your first date, or doing a favorite activity. Many couples choose to include beloved pets in the engagement portrait. These pictures will be cherished by family and friends as reflections of the two of you when relaxed and being yourselves.

Engagement photos should be sent to the bride and grooms hometown newspapers with an engagement announcement. The parents will appreciate it as it gives them the opportunity to share your upcoming marriage with friends who see the announcement.

You may also want to use an engagement portrait on your wedding invitations. This trend has become popular in recent years. Couples may also use the photos on wedding favors and place cards at the reception. You can even order bottles of wine from local wineries and have custom labels printed that feature your engagement portrait. These are wonderful for the toasts at the reception.

Finally, you should wear makeup similar to what you plan to wear on your wedding day. When the proofs come back, you will be able to see how the makeup looks in pictures, which will help you adjust how you wear your makeup for your actual wedding day. You can determine if the photos will wash you out or make your face too bright.

When you are in your new home as man and wife, you will enjoy having both the formal wedding portrait and an informal engagement picture to display. The engagement photos are as much a part of the wedding as the actual day so enjoy this special part of the wedding and celebrate in your engagement just as you will your wedding.
