Did you know that engagement photos aren’t the only way to get ready for your wedding day? Engagement videos and films are a thing (and are so fun)! Erica and Noah decided to go this route and get their engagement video taken at Horsetooth Reservoir in Colorado! I was so excited to capture it for them! I am always going to be pro engagement video session because video has my heart. So, let’s talk about why these are a great alternative to the traditional engagement photo sessions and are an absolute must!
When you chose to forgo the photos and go with engagement videos your get more comfortable. Getting to know your videographer is just as important as getting to know your photographer! If anything, I think it’s more important. Your videographer needs to understand you and your partner much more deeply to really be able to tell your story accurately! Plus, feeling more comfortable on your actual wedding day is going to be so nice, right?
Going the engagement video route gives you a cool spin on save the dates. They are also a great way to hype up your wedding day in a super fun way! Can you imagine sending off a short clip to your friends and family announcing your engagement and save the date? So awesome and unique!!
Another benefit is that you can see your videographers style and how they capture your love prior to your wedding day. Plus, it also helps lower pressure and stress levels of knowing what to expect all on your big day. It’s like getting a sneak peek of your wedding day before your actual wedding day!
