Why take engagement photos? First, it's a good way to get more comfortable in front of the camera with your wedding photographer. You'll get out all of the jitters, learn about how your photographer operates, and, on the other side, your photographer will get a better idea of your comfort level and your best angles—resulting in better pictures on your wedding day. But the most popular reason to take engagement photos: Save The Date Cards & Videos. Contact A. Boswell Photography to capture your special moments.
