She said yes! Now it’s time to let the world know…

Most couples will not have had their photographs taken together before their wedding day by a professional – please note drunken saturday night selfies in cocktail bars do not count!

An engagement shoot is an amazing opportunity for both of you to get more comfortable in front of the lens as after all you will be spending a full day in the spotlight in the near future.

As well as making you feel comfortable it enables us to build up a stronger relationship and feel more relaxed working together and ensure you the confidence you already have or are booking the right person for your wedding.

One of the most beautiful things about your engagement shoot is the memories for life you have invested in, due to the quality of the photos you are going to receive you have created future proof memories that will never fade away & the ability to post the pictures to social media to share the big news further and use them for wedding invites is always a huge bonus & of course not forgetting the ability to create exceptional quality print & canvases for the home.

Where will our engagement shoot take place? 

Your engagement shoot is special to you and can take place anywhere that is sentimental to you, Often engagement shoots are based in a local woodland, mountains & hills, beach, foreshore or even on the wedding venue grounds.

I am more than happy to go as out there or low key as you feel and we can discuss this when booking.

What should we wear?

One of the most common questions asked when booking an engagement shoot is what to wear, the answer in simplicity is whatever you feel most comfortable in, smart casual is always the winner and of course being weather aware too.

If we are heading up to a hill in 5 degrees winter weather then high heels & short skirts won’t be a good idea but if we are in the middle of a field in peak summer I think a maxi dress and sliders would be fine.

Feel free to check out some album shots to get an idea of what to wear or drop me a message if you’re still confused.

How much will it cost?

If you’ve booked a package with me already for your big day it may include an engagement shoot & pre meet up so please check this, however, most couples would prefer to book in an engagement shoot first before fully committing to the wedding booking to get to know me as a person and see the quality & style of my work which is absolutely fine.

An engagement shoot costs £200, It will include up to 2 hours spent together walking, talking, laughing, joking and minimal posing.

In this time we will capture as many natural pictures as possible in as many different scenarios as possible and have a lot of fun along the way!

From there I will deliver these photos to you in a private online album which will have access for you to download, share & even order prints online.

From experience an engagement shoot usually ends up with around 30-50 images for you to choose from, give or take.
