I strongly encourage my couples to do this because it is a fantastic way for you to become comfortable in front of the camera and for me to get to know you before your wedding day. I’m going to be with you for hours on the day of your wedding. (I did mention it’s the most important day of your life, right?) So what is a better way than to simply hang out, get to know each other, get comfortable in front of the camera, and take photos without any pressure or stress!
