Most men aren’t overly excited to have their pictures taken for two hours, and that’s completely understandable! There’s a lot of excitement wrapped up in this time for you both, yet sometimes for him, pictures are not the thing that he most looked forward to. But let me tell you…it doesn’t have to be that way!
Take some time BEFORE your engagement session to let him know why it’s important to you! Trust me, once he knows how you feel about it, he’ll light up for you! Sometimes guys are hesitant about their engagement session because of a bad experience in the past, they don’t like taking photos, or just don’t think they’ll be good at it. Yet by the time we’re done, they can’t believe how fast it went and just how much fun they had!
It also makes a world of difference if you take some time to empower your guy by sharing some of your favorite engagement sessions you may have seen online. Take the mystery out of it so he can catch your vision too. Ask for his thoughts and ideas if he has them, and try to include him in your anticipation as much as possible!
Afterwards, when you’re done and still dressed up, why not go out and make a date of it? You may want to give him something to look forward to afterwards by taking him to a restaurant of his choice!
