Why I’m doing this?
This Facebook promotion is meant to get the word out about my photography, so you’re already helping me by finding out who I am and hopefully telling your friends. Now, I can help you by giving you a little something extra in return.
How this can benefit you?
Offering you a free engagement session along with fun, fabulous wedding photos only hints at the personal, quality service that I will provide as your wedding photographer. I will admit that wedding photography can be expensive, but I will work with you to give you the best price for your custom wedding photography experience. Maybe some of the money you save with me can be put towards something else that you want, like a gorgeous venue for your wedding.
What about the goods?
Your free engagement session will include 2 hours on location. The location will likely be a park within the Seattle area. You can bring as many changes of clothes as you like, just remember changing time takes away from the time spent on your photos. After the session is done, I will post an online gallery for you to pick your favorite 5 photos to be printed. One of these can be an 8×10 if you’d like, but the rest will be 4×6 or 5×7. You will receive all of the images as digital files on a DVD. The online gallery will remain viewable until after your wedding. You can easily share this with your future guests or anybody else.
Take a look at my Wedding Galleries to see what kind of photos you can expect for your wedding. I also have Portrait gallery that includes couples and engagement photography.
Why engagement photos are SO important?
Not many couples realize this, but an engagement session really helps prepare people for having an entire day documented (this is especially true for the guys!). Imagine meeting your wedding photographer for the first time as you’re getting ready in the morning. That could be quite uncomfortable for everyone. If you’ve already met your photographer AND had photos taken by him/ her, you will have less to stress about on your wedding day.
Another reason why engagement photos are important is because you can practice being in front of the camera. Sure, you can feel free to practice your diva pose, but I really mean that you can practice ignoring the camera’s presence. Ideally you will forget that I’m there on your wedding day, and just carry on as you would if I weren’t. This is hard for most people because we are taught to “say cheese!” at an early age.
Want an obvious reason? Well, you have more photos of course! Perhaps you haven’t thought of what you can do with those photos though. Guestbooks, invitations, thank you cards, or even a little something for your guests so they know where to see your online gallery of wedding photos. Cool, huh? Don’t forget, you’ll also have a nice set of professional photos to choose from when you want to update your Facebook profile. 🙂
You’re walking away with a great deal and I get a great new client! It’s a win win!
