FAQ: Should we do an engagement session?



Curious about doing an engagement session? We're sharing three reasons you should consider adding an engagement session to your wedding collection.


  1. It gives you a chance to work with your photographer before your wedding day.

Connection with our clients is so important to us. It's what helps us capture your day in a genuine and authentic way. When you feel comfortable with your photographer, you are going to look & feel like the best version of yourself. An engagement session allows the ability to get comfortable with not only who they are and their personality, but also their posing and shooting style. It helps both you and your partner walk into your day less stressed because you know what to expect.



2. You deserve to celebrate!


You're going to be married forever - soak up this time of being engaged! I like to refer to engagement sessions as a date night out. You get to dress up, snuggle, and why not make dinner plans after?


A lot of our couples get engaged but they may be planning 1+ year in advance so this is the perfect way to kick start your engagement and celebrate. We even encourage bringing some bubbly to pop!



3. They make for perfect save the dates.


A lot of our clients love to use their engagement photos to include with their save the dates. But you don't have to stop there. Consider making an album with Artifact Uprising or order prints directly through your gallery for your home.


If you need help creating your save the dates we love to use Artifact Uprising, Basic Invite (use code:AmandaFogarty for 20% off), and your Pixieset even has some easy templates.




So what's an engagement session like with The Libbys?


After booking, we will work closely with you to design a vision. We will help choose your location if you do not already have one in mind and provide inspiration for outfit and style choices.

Two weeks after our session you will receive an online proofing gallery of 100-200 images where you will be able to select the 50 (or more) images you would like to be edited.

After you select your images, we will edit your favorites in both color & black and white and deliver them to you via high resolution digital download. You will receive rights to print these images & can order prints directly through your online gallery.

You can expect a 4 week turn around time, from the date of your session, to receive your final images & 6 weeks for your final film.
