3 steps to get amazing engagement photographs
- Hire a great photographer with experience
- Don't wait to have your professional engagement photos take. Life will take over and you will get busy. If you could ask yourself 15 years in the future about documenting this your advice to yourself would be DON'T wait.
- Purchase prints, or custom albums. Digital is great but.....your kids will flip when they see actual beautiful prints of how you both looked when you were younger.
Make them great prints! When deciding on a photographer make sure to know the quality of prints and photo labs that they use. This can ruin a great photo. Go high end on photographic prints, they will look better today and in 20 years.
