2) Practice (trial run) before your wedding
Most engaged couples probably never had professional photos of themselves and this is the chance! This is a great opportunity for you to get comfortable in front of the camera to avoid any kind of camera shyness before your big day. With an engagement session, you will see how your photographer takes pictures and it will only make everything easier for you on your wedding day.
3) You get to know your photographer
Your photographer is more than someone who will snap photos on your wedding. Getting to know your photographer allows you to build trust and you won't feel as if a stranger is snapping photos on your day. Fact: you will see your photographer more than any other vendor on your wedding!
4) Your photographer gets to know you
Relating to number 3 above. Your photographer is more than just someone who will snap photos on your wedding. Establishing a relationship with your photographer prior to the wedding will allow you to have a much better experience. Your wedding photos will be much better as a result! Also, as a skilled professional, your photographer will want to get to know you and your fiancé to capture the timeless moments because the photos are all about you.
