Preparing Your Groom

Education + Planning

Anxious about how your groom is going to react?

If you are feeling anxious about how your groom is going to react to this whole “picture” thing, you’re not alone. There are many brides who are worried that their groom won’t be into it, but I have great news for you. You both are more photogenic than you think! I am constantly surprising couples by discovering their hidden modeling skills. My most common response from grooms: “That wasn’t as bad as I thought! It was actually fun!” Boom! Mission accomplished! When the groom says taking pictures was FUN, I have done my job well!

How should you feel during your engagement session?

Your engagement session is supposed to be fun and relaxed, not forced or awkward. As you prepare for your shoot, there are a few things that you can do to help your groom know what to expect. First of all, I highly recommend sitting down together and showing him 2-3 engagement sessions that I have photographed. Spend some time together scrolling through a few blog posts. This will allow him to gauge what his expectations should be. I also recommend that you allow for plenty of time to get to your shoot! There is nothing worse then feeling stressed about showing up late. Sometimes life happens, but a good plan can help us avoid unnecessary stress.

Closing Thoughts

Last but not least, remember to have patience with him and don’t assume that he’s not going to have a good time. I think you’ll be surprised how much you will both enjoy your session!
