The beautiful Tappan Hill Mansion in Tarrytown Ny was home to this great couple for an evening to celebrate a great love. Family and friends all gathered to watch a great wedding ceremony happen. Tappan Hill Mansion provided a great backdrop and fantastic catering. Christopher's Photography Studio was the Westchester County photographer that captured the event.

Engagement Portrait Sessions are a great tool for successful wedding photographs at Christopher's Studio..

TheKnot.com website has recently posted tips on what to look for when shopping for a photographer, I will respond to those suggestions in future blogs. One was about engagement portraits. A recent blog that I posted on GetMarried.com was just about that.

The Value of Engagement Portraits

At Christopher's Studio we offer engagement portraits for many reasons. As a photographer it is a great way to learn about the couple.

  • Not all poses work for every couple, body language, height, hair styles, and even eye glasses make a difference in the poses we choose for each couple. This all comes with the experience we have gained through years of photographing couples.
  • The creative poses we offer will also dictate your style and allow us to work better with you on the wedding day. We will know exactly the best poses and the style of photography that fits your style on your big day. A piggy back ride may work for some couples but not all...
  • The bridal make-up can be applied, tested and photographed during the engagement session. This allows for a preview of the make-up application and your stylist can make adjustments for the wedding day beauty visit.
  • Save the date cards are a very popular item! These are done with some creative ideas that we have up our sleeve. We can make magnets or photo cards for you to send to your guests.
  • A photo guest book is also a great idea for your wedding guests to sign and send you well wishes on your wedding day.

I just gave you some really great ideas for your engagement shoot and I hope you call to schedule yours today. If you already booked your wedding photography package with Christopher's Studio they are included in the package so we can better serve our clients. If you would just like some great images of you as a couple you are welcome to call and schedule an appointment.

Nicole and Jack has a wonderful wedding. The pictures came out beautiful and a good time was had by all.

The photographs were taken both traditionally and artistically to allow for some great emotional images. Jack being from London had plenty of

English flair about him and we captured his style perfectly. The ceremony was held inside at the Nyack Seaport in Rockland County, New York.

The location provides the best view on the hudson and this can be seen at anytime by just looking out the Seaport window.
