5 reasons why you NEED an engagement sesh (& why they're always complimentary at Silverfox)

Your engagement is arguably the most exciting time of your life. It marks the beginning of a brand new, joy-filled, chapter of your days. It's the start of a happily-ever-forever. And we just happen to think that calls for a mandatory photoshoot. At Silverfox, we believe SO STRONGLY that every couple deserves to mark their engagement with an engagement photography session, that's why we offer them for free (yas, fo free), to every single #Silverfoxy couple. And here's why:

1. To Celebrate
You're in love, you're in love, and you don't care who know it! Buddy the Elf would want you to mark the occasion with some beautiful photos. And share them all over Instagram because you know how real that wedding day anticipation is. (p.s. if you're not following us on Insta, get with the times!) 

2. To practice
No, not to practice kissing (we assume you've practiced that enough) or standing next to a tree, but to practice getting comfortable in front of the camera. Getting in front of the lens (iPhone lenses don't count, come on now) is a feeling to warm up to and get used to. After getting through your engagement session, you can be sure you'll feel confident and cool as a cucumber for wedding day photos.

3. To get to know your photographer
It's beyond important for you to get to know each other. Becoming comfortable with your photographer before the wedding day is the key to magical images. We ALWAYS place you with your wedding day photographer for your engagement session. You'll get to see exactly how they'll interact with you on the big day while watching their work in action.

4. To make sure it's the right fit
We always do our best to match your personality and desired style to one of our (incredibly talented, cool, and friendly) photographers, but if for some crazy out-of-this-world reason you don't click, there's plenty of time to find your perfect match. 

5. Because those pics are dang useful
Besides having insanely like-inducing photos to post on social media, your engagement photos make the perfect addition to save the dates (which we'll even make & print for you...more on that in a sec) and wedding day decor. If you go the extra step to wear clothes that match your wedding day color palette or bring along some props you plan to use for decoration on the big day, you are killin' it (like Victoria & Mike pictured below).

Besides the experience being practical wedding prep, just look how practical engagement photos can be! #Silverfoxy couple Casey & Dave chose this photo from their engagement sesh to have made into a save-the-date card or magnet. These images below were a few of the options we gave them to choose from! You can also have your photos printed in a guest book, displayed at your engagement party or shower, made into thank you cards, and even given as parent gifts (just to name a few).
