Do I Need Engagement Photos | Wichita Wedding Photographer

You’re getting ready for the best day of your life, with friends traveling from near and far to witness you exchange vows with your love. It’s a mix of nerves, excitement, and thrill. As you book your photographer, you’re thinking about how awkward you can be in front of a camera, how you want to save money yet still get a high-quality experience, and how you want to make the most of the season before tying the knot. You’re wondering, “Do I need engagement photos??” You stumble upon my website… Welcome to the Ashley Cole Experience.

All my wedding packages offer the option to incorporate an engagement session, with discounts included! *cue the confetti* More often than not, I’m on the phone with potential wedding clients and they share just how self-conscious and uncoordinated they are in front of a lens. But never fear, this is where I step in! I’ll lead you through all the posing, guide you with joy and care, and make sure all those fly away hairs are tamed!

Why You Need Engagement Photos

Engagement sessions are an AH-MAZING way to get to know me before the big day and ease those pre-wedding jitters! You’ll be able to feel what it’s like to be in front of my lens as I metaphorically hold your hand through every pose prompt. Plus, I’ll send you a sneak peek of your gallery within 48 hours, leaving you feeling all gushy about your engagement season!

“And these are just the sneak peeks” 😍

I adore capturing the uniqueness of your story and shooting at locations that are meaningful to you. You’ll often hear me ask, “Are there any special locations for you?” If not, no worries! I have plenty of locations for you to choose from. Easy-peasy!

Have trouble deciding on your outfits? I won’t let that be an excuse! Pop over to this blog, where I give tips and tricks for planning the best outfits for your engagement photos. Whatever your worry, I probably have a solution, so book the shoot and thank me later.

Not sure what you would do with engagement photos? What’s more is engagement photos add a meaningful, decorative display for the wedding day. I’ve seen couples place them on reception tables as a centerpiece and by their wedding guest book, to personalize their venue even more.

An added bonus to engagement photos is that I have connections with local professional hair and makeup artists who will glam you up for your session! One idea gals have taken advantage of is doing their bridal look trial on the same day as the engagement session, so they’re already prettied up! Videographers also offer the option to attend the engagement session, so you can have a keepsake video of your engagement session as well!
