Engagement photography commemorates a joyful time for both personal use and family remembrance. Some engaged couples like to send photographs with engagement announcements or wedding invitations. For other couples, an engagement photo taken for the newspaper is an important tradition.

In some cases, a couple will have an engagement photo taken together, and the bride-to-be will also have photos taken by herself, perhaps prominently featuring the engagement ring. In some cases, engagement announcements are run in a local paper or alumni magazines from high schools or colleges, and pictures can be run of each person separately or the couple together. If the pictures are to be published like this, professional engagement photography is a great way to make sure the pictures are as beautiful as you would hope.

If the pictures are for personal or family use, there is no limit to the stylistic options. Some couples want very traditional posed formal portraits, but others are happier with fun or candid shots that show their personalities or interests. Engagement photography should capture this relatively brief period in a relationship in whatever way the couple feels most comfortable with.

Having a photographer take engagement pictures can also be a great way to find out if you want them to take your wedding pictures. Obviously, selecting a wedding photographer is an incredibly important decision, and the best way to know if you are happy with a photographer is to work with them and see if they listen to you and provide you with the kind of images you want. If you are looking for photographers in your price range and in your area, the Internet is a great place to start.
