It used to be that announcing your engagement to those you hold near and dear would be shared with loved ones in person—or through a string of excited phone calls to those both near and far. However, in today’s electronically savvy world many couples announced their engagement through a social media post that is often overlooked by those who matter most. If you are an engaged couple who lives in the Pittsburgh area, and are looking for a more fitting way to announce your engagement—consider engagement photos taken by a Pittsburgh portrait photographer.
Celebrate Your Love
Whether you prefer formal engagement photographs, organic photographs or whimsical photographs that are uniquely you—professional engagement photos are an excellent way to celebrate your love. Keep in mind that your Pittsburgh engagement photographer will gladly shoot your photographs in their studio, or in the outdoor or indoor venue of your choice. This allows each couple to ensure that they have more than a portrait of the two of them together but photographs designed to celebrate their love.
A Touching Keepsake
When your friends and family receive your wedding announcement and engagement photo in the mail—you will be sending more than a standard announcement, but a touching keepsake. This keepsake is ideal for scrapbooks, photo albums, and for a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
Introduce Your Loved One To Out Of State Friends and Family
Many engaged couples have friends and family members who live out of state, and have yet to meet your fiancé in person. This makes your wedding announcement the perfect time to reach out to a Pittsburgh portrait photographer—so that your loved ones can place a face to the name they have been hearing so much about. Even if your out-of-state friends and family have met your betrothed a handful of times or have seen a handful of pictures of them—there is something extra-special about engagement photos.
Get Comfortable Behind the Camera
Another excellent reason to announce your engagement with professional wedding photography is so that you and your fiancé can get comfortable behind the camera. Even with the onslaught of selfies, the average person is not accustomed to posing for the camera. This will make your engagement photo shoot an excellent time to get comfortable with the photographer who will shoot your wedding—as well as get comfortable with having your picture taken.
Even with all of the methods of electronic communication, it is always a nice surprise to receive a formal wedding announcement in the mail.
