With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I dug up a few interesting facts. It is hard to believe but Glamour Magazine reports that only 10% of all engagement proposals take place on Valentine’s Day. That still makes it the number one Day to get engaged on. I just thought that number would be much higher. December ends up being the most popular month of the year to get engaged. They also report that the average engagement ring cost $5,229 and the average length of engagements is 14.7 months!
If you are one of the lucky couples that just recently got engaged over the past few months congratulations! 69% of you will take engagement photos. Engagement photos are a wonderful way for you to get to know and work with your photographer before your wedding. I absolutely love doing engagement sessions. However, not all photographers do engagement sessions. Make sure your photographer is up for it and check to see if it is in your wedding package or something you have to pay extra for. I include it in all of my wedding packages, so you don’t pay extra for it. It is a fun, casual session that generally takes place outside during warmer months However, winter sessions are growing in popularity.
I wrote a detail blog on engagement session last year. If you would like some more information on what they should be about and what they shouldn’t be about scroll down and read my Valentine’s Day blog from last year. It has a ton of good information in it.
If you have any questions on engagement sessions or photography/video in general please feel free to contact me. I have attached some of my favorite images from engagement session I did in 2014. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.
Happy Valentines Day!
