We had the absolute BEST time with these two on Monday evening! Katie and Keith are getting married this Saturday in McCall, Idaho. We instantly fell in love with Katie’s infectious smile and Keith’s easy-going personality. These two have such incredible chemistry and made our job way too easy! They only threw us one curveball but you have to get to the end of this post to find out what that was! 😉
Even though their wedding was only 6 days away they opted-in for an engagement session. We can’t stress enough how important doing an engagement session with your photographer before your wedding. Whether it is a year out or a few days out it will make the photography aspect of your wedding day go so much smoother. Here are the top 3 reasons why you should do an engagement session with your photographer before your wedding day!
1. Get Comfortable In Front Of Our Cameras
Our goal is to keep the engagement session fun and stress free! We do this by budgeting two hours for the shoot which gives us ample time to practice different poses and just have fun!
2. It Allows Us To Get To Know Each Other!
As your wedding photographers we get to spend the most time with you during your wedding day. Sometimes even more than you get to spend with each other! We love it when we build a friendship with our Cimbalik Couples that in turn provides everyone with a great experience on the wedding day! We don’t want to feel like strangers. We want you to be as comfortable around us as possible because that really comes through in pictures!
3. You Can Learn All Our Posing Tricks
Over the past 7 years we have taken a lot of classes on how to pose our couples! We have a lot of posing tips and tricks and a system to provide you a lot of variety while taking all the pressure off of you! We walk you through EVERYTHING! Our couples love having the engagement session as a practice run so that come wedding day they could basically win America’s Next Top Model!
We hope you enjoy looking at these images at least half as much as we enjoyed taking them!!
If you made it all the way to the end we have a secret to share. Sometimes things don’t always go as planned but it’s how you handle life’s curveballs that makes the journey fun!
After we reached the top of the mountain we realized that Keith had forgotten his dress pants. We loved how these two made the best of the situation and we didn’t let it stop us from having an amazing time! It was also really fun to step out of the box and get creative with posing! Bet you had no idea! 😉
