Today we’ve got another great urban engagement session in Edmonton to share with you. Nicole & Glenn are getting married this summer at the Yellowhead Brewery and we had the chance to meet up with them shortly after they booked us for an urban-inspired engagement session along Whyte Avenue. Nicole & Glenn totally share our sense of humour and we enjoyed some good laughs while we explored Old Strathcona’s back alleys.
Engagement sessions are a great opportunity for us to build a connection with our clients prior to photographing them on their wedding day. Couples often comment prior to the shoot that they are nervous or shy around cameras so the engagement session is a great opportunity to break the ice and find out what poses and interactions work best for them. Usually, within about 15 minutes we have our couples completely relaxed and enjoying a good laugh together and they forget that the cameras are even there which is when the magic starts to happen. So if you are planning a wedding and thinking about cutting out the engagement session to save some money, we would highly recommend trying to find some room in your budget to make it work. You’ll find that if you do, not only will you have awesome casual photos for things like your save the date cards and wedding slideshows, you’ll also be that much more comfortable on your wedding day and it will show in your wedding photos.
Here are a few favourite photos from our time together. We can’t wait to share more laughs and fun from their summer wedding this August.
