More Engagement Images
by William Lulow
As I have mentioned previously, engagement photos are a great excuse for a photographer to get to know the bride and groom before the wedding. It helps break the ice, so to speak, so that everyone feels comfortable with each other. I think that the most important thing that brides should look for in a photographer (besides technical competence, of course), is the ability to make people feel comfortable, not be intrusive and still be able to get the needed shots. I’ve always said that if you can get the couple to work with you on making the photographs, they will be that much better. If the bride and groom both are participating fully with the photographer, that’s the an important part of the formula for great wedding shots.
