If you’re like our couple Melissa and Justin, you’re questioning whether or not an engagement photographer is worth it. We totally get it! But an engagement photographer/shoot is something you definitely don’t want to miss out on. And we’re going to tell you why!
Melissa and Justin let us know right away that they were not fans of engagement shoots. But, we knew what they actually meant is that they hadn’t ever seen any engagement pictures on the whole Internet that they liked. This presented us with the awesome opportunity to show them just how versatile we are here at MANGO, and how cool and unique engagement sessions can be.
What’s different with MANGO engagement photographers is that we alter our shooting style to varying degrees for each of our couples. We stick to our tried and try basics of professional photography and style and tweak different elements to match the style of our couples. No couple is the same as any other, and your engagement photographer should be able to showcase that!
This couple wanted something different. Challenge accepted!
One of the first things we decided to do to set this gallery apart was to shoot it entirely on a 28mm lens. Call us crazy, but sometimes not mixing it up is the best way to mix it up. Choosing a lens or lenses to shoot on is one of the building blocks for creating the style of your gallery that will be completely unique to each couple. If you’re into bright and airy, romantic photos, we’ll shoot your engagement that way. Plus, we’ll make sure your wedding matches as well! If modern, cool and urban is more your jam, we’ll take the necessary steps to make sure your photos accurately represent that. We’re dedicated to making sure that these photos are all about you. With that includes capturing your true personality, tastes and little quirks. We want our photos to be authentic to who you are and how you want to be presented.
This is one of our favourite aspects of having an engagement photographer. Not only does an engagement session let you and your engagement photographer connect, get to know each other, and get comfortable before the wedding. It also acts as an opportunity for us to learn and showcase your personal style.
Melissa and Justin are a perfect representation of this. They’re a modern, hip couple who likes to live to the beat of their own drums. Though they originally didn’t want engagement photographs, they really warmed up to the idea when we assured them that their gallery would be as personal and unique as possible. When we found out that they live in a renovated Victorian gem, we knew we had to shoot there with them! There really is no place like home, especially when it comes to engagement photography. It was a privilege to be let into their comfort zone and capture them at home (which is gorgeous, by the way). These two are also absolutely obsessed with their french bulldog. And how could you not be? Adding your beloved pets into your pictures is a way to instantly customize your engagement shoot, and it makes everyone involved so cheerful!
Thanks, Melissa and Justin, for putting us up for the rewarding challenge of getting you into a shoot and letting us be your engagement photographer. We’re ecstatic that you put your trust in us, and we’re obsessed with the results. We had so much fun with you guys during your engagement pictures, and an equal amount of fun photographing your recent wedding at MOCA. We wish you three (can’t forget your puppy!) all the best in your future together. Much love!
