Capturing Your Love Story: The Significance of Calgary Engagement Photos

You're engaged - congratulations! As you start your planning journey towards your big day, have you considered having an engagement shoot? Your wedding day is one of the most significant chapters in your love story, and capturing the moments leading up to it is equally important. Calgary engagement photos are not just about pretty pictures; they play a large role in narrating your unique love story. 


At Fly Free Photography, we help you plan and document your wedding day as well as, give tons of value in the days leading up to it. If you are considering having your engagement photos done, we have various packages that you can check out! If you are still on the fence, hopefully, the following points below can help you decide if an engagement session is right for you.



8 Reasons Why Couples Should Get Calgary Engagement Photos Done.


1. Memories that Last Forever

Capture the love and excitement of this new chapter in your life with stunning photographs that will bring a smile to your face every time you look back on them. They capture the authentic connection and chemistry between you and your partner, telling a story that is uniquely yours.


2. Quality Time Together

Use the engagement shoot as an excuse to spend quality time together amidst the chaos of wedding planning. Enjoy each other's company and create beautiful memories along the way. From stolen glances to laughter-filled embraces, these photos encapsulate the raw, unscripted moments that make your love story truly special.




3. Connection with your photographer

Calgary engagement sessions provide an opportunity to build a rapport with your wedding photographer. It allows you to get comfortable in front of the camera, understand your photographer's style, and communicate your preferences. This connection ensures that your photographer can capture the most genuine and natural moments on your wedding day.


4. Spread the Joy

These beauties have a multitude of uses beyond being simple mementos. Share the love with your friends and family by using your engagement photos for save-the-date cards, wedding invitations, guest books, or even as decor during the wedding itself. Remember, an engagement shoot is not just about the photos; it's about celebrating your love and the exciting journey you're embarking on together.


5. Practice Makes Perfect

Most couples aren't used to being photographed professionally, and the wedding day can be overwhelming. Engagement photos serve as a practice round, allowing you to understand your best angles and become more comfortable in front of the lens. This practice ensures that you look and feel your best on your wedding day.



6. Get Creative with the Location

Choose a location for your shoot that's meaningful to you both. Whether it's where you first met, your favorite date spot, or simply a place you both love, make it personal and unique. These photos capture the essence of your relationship, creating a visual narrative that goes beyond the wedding day itself. It's a day that we can do something a little more outside the box that maybe we won't have time for on your wedding day.


7. Showcase Your Personality

Let your personalities shine through in a more relaxed setting. Whether you're goofy, romantic, or a little bit of both, your engagement shoot is a chance to showcase who you are as a couple. Don't worry, if you are sitting there thinking "We aren't very photogenic", I got you! I incorporate a lot of games and fun things into the session so everyone has a great time!


"TDLR; Krystal is amazing and we look forward to working with her again. I can’t say enough great things about Krystal! She shot a couples session for my husband and I under the cherry blossoms and we were blown away by the photos she delivered. Every part of the experience with her was amazing - she is so organized and an excellent communicator; she made me feel so confident in knowing what to expect during the session as well as afterwards. I’m generally not super comfortable with new people and certainly not in front of a camera, but Krystal’s warm and uplifting personality made it unbelievably easy for my husband and I to feel relaxed. Her prompts/direction really helped set the stage for all the fun experimental shots we did, and our gallery reflects that. Krystal is amazing at what she does and while I’m sad I didn’t know about her before our wedding, I’m so glad to have met her now and will definitely reach out to her again for future work! If you have the opportunity to shoot with her, don’t sleep on it. Her work is worth the investment. Thank you so much, Krystal!" - Ayla


8. Involve Your Furry Friends

I don't care what anyone says, they are part of the family too! So if you have furry babies, please include them in the shoot. Especially if they won't be included in your wedding day, getting some adorable shots with your four-legged goofballs to cherish forever, is something you won't regret.




Let’s plan that engagement photoshoot!


Looking to laugh way too hard, maybe cry some happy tears, and do things that scream YOU in your photos? That’s perfect because those are the kinds of photos that I want to capture for you! I do deep belly laughs, real smiles, happy tears, and you will walk away knowing you had the most amazing time doing something true to you!


Whether you're a romantic at heart or just looking for a fun and memorable experience, considering an engagement shoot could be the perfect way to kick off your wedding journey with style and laughter.
