to think about, but only 5-7 years ago, engagement portraits were NOT what you see today! If you’re working in the wedding industry or are a bride just getting started with your planning, I think it’s important to realize just HOW MUCH this industry has evolved in the last several years. It’s really transforming into something TOTALLY different than what it used to be! I’ve heard several people that aren’t associated with the industry say things like “What are ENGAGEMENT portraits? I’ve never even heard of that!!!”. Well when I hear that, I think “WHAT?! Engagements?! It’s like a right of passage for the wedding day!
