Engagement shoot – should we have one?
Now that you’re engaged you may be busy planning the details of your big day, from flowers and invites to venue and photographer. It really is an exciting time and there are so many suppliers to choose from.
Whether you are keen on having your photo taken or not, their are numerous benefits of taking part in an engagement shoot!
You will get some gorgeous photographs of the two of you together, just being yourselves and relaxed and you can wear whatever you want (there’s no feeling like you cant just lie on the ground if you want to without fear of getting a grass stain or two…) In the build up to the wedding you will find yourself getting busier and busier, so this is great for the two of you to spend an afternoon together… in one of your favourite locations just relaxing and feeling the excitement of your wedding day.
Everyone says the wedding day will fly by.. and it really does….you’ll be having a ball!
The E-shoot is more relaxed and we can take as long as you like, you’ll be surprised how quickly the shoot will pass when your having fun, with a few kisses and cuddles along the way!
I will see and capture your little details; the way you look at and hold each other. We will have fun with some poses to make you comfortable and relax so on your big day you’ll completely forget that you’re in front of a camera and simply enjoy each other. You may want to bring props just like Jenni & Ian, a fabulous musician with his guitar serenading his fiance.
The Engagement shoot is your opportunity to practice before the big day if you are nervous or a little shy…its a great way for you to get to know me and vise versa. You’ll get to know my shooting style and way of working. You can use your engagement pictures for your save the dates, wedding website or print for your walls!
You’ve now made a great decision to have an e-shoot! All you need to do now is to choose your favourite location and a date. I schedule my engagement shoots mid week as most often I am shooting weddings or families at the weekend, this will give us more time together to get to know each other.
