I love shooting engagement photographs. Everything is so new and exciting and romance just seems to ooze from the couples.
It's great fun to create memorable photographs without the pressure or restraints of the big day. These shoots tend to be on location so let your imagination run riot. A favourite place, walk, where you met. Wellies and coats, evening wear...anything goes, anywhere! Romantic shots tend to call for romantic natural lighting so I am very flexible in terms of times to do these shoots - I have been known to get out of bed for the odd sunrise or stay out late for that special sunset.
The photographs can simply be used a memento or can be used for the wedding itself as invites, a guestbook or table details.
I would encourage my wedding couples to have an engagement shoot because obviously not only is it great fun but it's a great chance to get accustomed to being in front of the camera. We can be silly and create some amazing images but it also helps us to get to know each other a little bit and establish what you like and don't like. And that all helps on your wedding day.
Engagement shoots are included in some of my packages but can be booked separately for £125 per session lasting approximately 1 hour and you will receive a disk of high resolution images.
