Queretaro de Arteaga Engagement Session Adriana and Ricard
Querétaro de Arteaga Engagement Session Adriana and Ricard
I like to tell couples that there is ONE fail proof way to make their engagement session fabulous. SMILE, have tons of FUN, and LAUGH! When you’re able to relax and enjoy yourself during your engagement session, your energy will simply radiate through your images! As you’ll soon see, Adriana and Ricard did just that when we shot their Queretaro downtown engagement photos!
Adriana and Ricard chose to do their engagement photos in Queretaro downtown, because it held special significance to them. They love the overall urban feel of the area. This made it a perfect place for their engagement session! We had a blast getting to know one another better and got some great images in the process!
Queretaro is a great spot for engagement photos for so many reasons! There are lots of textures, some fun murals, and an urban feel that isn’t too modern. I especially loved the street lights, park benches, and the vibrant heart mural wall! Adrina and Ricard could not have chosen a better location – and they looked amazing, too!
Having a pre-wedding / engagement shoot is an amazing idea.
It’s not only an opportunity to meet your photographer (as engagement sessions are usually captured by a wedding photographer of your choice as well) but also discovering that being in front of the camera is not scary at all. It’s actually quite the opposite. I can’t even remember how many times I heard the following statements from my couples: we are awkward in front of the camera, we don’t like being photographed…
And then after a while, magically, they turn into this relaxed couple enjoying their time together when the photographer keeps pressing the shutter button. You know what? You are that couple, you just don’t know it yet!
Why should we have an engagement session?
Firsty, memories – it will become a great memory to look back on. Order prints and put them in an album. You can show them to your friends and family also by sharing them on Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest.
Secondly, the photographs can be used as a Save-The-Date, sent to the wedding guests side by side with your invite. Isn’t it an awesome way to announce your wedding date to your family and friends?
Also, an engagement session is just about the two of you. No one else. Your wedding day is also about you of course, but then you are surrounded by different distractions. Pre-wedding photoshoot is much more intimate and relaxed as you don’t have to worry about guests having a great time, drinks being served or posing with each member of the family.
Another very important reason is that an engagement photoshoot is an opportunity to build a connection with your photographer and get to know them. It gives you an idea about what to expect on your wedding day and it’s a chance to discuss your big day and ideas further.
