So another question that I get asked a lot is “why do an engagement session?” Well, there are a few good reasons why. Firstly, if you are even remotely nervous or aren’t crazy about having your photo taken, the engagement session is a good chance to be in front of the camera before the wedding and get comfortable. When someone usually admits to me that they are nervous, by the end of the session they are laughing, having a good time and completely oblivious to the fact that I’m even around photographing them! Secondly, it’s also a chance for me to get to know you a little better as a couple, hear about how you met, what you like to do together and just get a feel for how you interact. Not to mention that it’s always a good idea to have some photos of you and your sweetie without your wedding attire on! May seems to be a perfect month for engagement sessions because the days are so long (so lots of lovely light!) and no mosquitoes!! Mike & Hilary, one of my July 2010 couples, had so much fun at their engagement session last month that we did another one 2 weeks later! Here are some during their first session at Grand Prix amusements

and then 2 weeks later at Assiniboine Park
