Why Book An Engagement Photographer?
If you’ve just become engaged, the chances are you’re now planning your wedding. One of the ‘big-ticket’ items after the venue, is of course, the wedding photographer. Now many people HATE having their photograph taken. For many, it’s weird, it’s awkward and very uncomfortable. This is not how you want to feel on your special day so a fantastic way to prepare is to book a session with an engagement photographer.
And you’ll want to to find an engagement photographer who can bring out the best in you. An engagement photographer who can make you laugh, make you relax and basically a photographer who feels like a friend.
So you need to ask yourself…does your engagement photographer feel like a friend? Because rapport is SO important. Not only will you enjoy having your photographer with you, but a fun photographer will help bring out those candid moments which also means, BETTER photos!
Locations and Your Engagement Photographer
It’s also a perfect time to scout for some gorgeous locations and decide exactly what type of photographs you’d like. Surprisingly, there are some gorgeous parks around Brisbane that look like you’re in the country. Your engagement photographer will no doubt know of some fantastic spots for your shoot.
Brisbane city also has some very funky locations if you like the urban style for your engagement shoot. Your engagement photographer will have plenty of tips on how to find some secret alleys and quiet streets where you can have some fun, uninterrupted by city traffic and crowds.
And of course one of the most popular locations for photography is the beach! Now your photographer will have some tips for you when it comes to shooting at the beach. For example, don’t worry about shoes, you probably won’t be able to walk in them anyway. And if you’re having your hair and make-up professionally done, ask the stylist to go crazy with the hairspray because it’s nearly always windy at the beach! There are plenty of local beaches just a short drive from Brisbane so pack a picnic and make a day of it. But most of all, have fun!
