Engagement Sessions // Couple Sessions

January 20, 2011

Doing engagement sessions or pre-wedding sessions or casual sessions, or whatever-you-want-to-term-them-as sessions is pretty much a no-brainer in our world.

For the couples who book us for their wedding, we want us (as in Nordica) to be an afterthought of sorts on the day of their wedding, which means getting them as comfortable as possible beforehand. These sessions tend to achieve that.

Which is why we offer complimentary whatever-you-want-to-call-them sessions to every couple who books us for their wedding.

The benefits should be obvious, so regurgitating why couples should work with their wedding photographer to make sure you book one isn’t really the point of this post.

The point of this post is more for us to shamelessly plug a few of the sessions we did last year as a point of reflection, and to get us stoked for this upcoming year and our first wedding of the year this Saturday.
