Engagement sessions are great in so many ways. It gives you the chance to be in front of the camera together before the big day, feel comfortable with yourselves and your photographer, and have beautiful pictures to use for your website, save the dates, guest sign in books, etc.! With all of that being said, there can be a little bit of pressure and lots of questions to prepare. Pure Luxe Bride interviewed photographer Jill Osteen with Aaron and Jillian Photography , and got some insight on engagement sessions. Hopefully this can ease some your mind for your shoot!

PLB: How should a couple choose the location of their shoot?

Jillian: Location is really important for these photos so find a place that’s special for the two of you! One of our couples loved the movie The Notebook, so we shot their engagement session at one of the locations used for the movie! If you own a boat or are on the water a lot, consider scheduling 1/2 of your session on a boat or at the marina.
