I only have one picture of my parents as a couple before they got married. I love to look at it. They look so young and in love. That one picture is like a window into their lives when they were dating - my mother in a mini skirt (it was the late 60’s), my father smiling with the big grin he wears when he feels like he's done something amazing - and it makes me see even more how they fell for one another.
That picture alone is a good enough reason for me to encourage our couples to take engagement pictures. So they, too, can have pictures that their kids can look at one day and see them, not just as "parents", but as a young couple in love. It’s that picture that makes me glad that @roberttrenske and I have our own engagement pictures to show to our son.
But I actually have a few more reasons why engagement sessions are a good idea. And it's not only because we love to do them (which we do!) Click through to see our 5 Reasons to Do An Engagement Session.
