An engagement shoot gives you a lot more freedom than your wedding photos allow. We can go pretty much wherever you like, from the place you got engaged to your favourite restaurant, or even where you had your first date. If you like art we can shoot in a gallery, and if you like food we can head to the market. The choice is yours! Many couples want to use a photo for their Save the Date cards, their Guest Book or even Thank You cards, so I keep that in mind when suggesting props and poses.
Other things to think about are what time of day you’d like your photo shoot and what you’ll wear. You don’t need to go all Posh ‘n’ Becks co-ordinated, but your outfits should look good together and, more importantly, make you feel fantastic. This is the time to wear your favourite pair of jeans and a great excuse for the ladies to treat themselves to manicure.
Your engagement photo session is the perfect accompaniment to your wedding album. Along with any family portraits you have taken down the line, it shares your tale of love and commitment.
