I absolutely adore engagement sessions. Getting together with a couple, without any worries about the time constraints of a wedding day and just shooting fun, beautiful images that capture their personalities.
Are you considering an engagement shoot? Below I’ve tried to answer the three most commonly asked questions on engagement shoots to help you to plan yours:
Why Do We Need An Engagement Shoot?
An engagement shoot is a great way for us to get to know each other, have some fun before your wedding day and get some great pictures that celebrate this exciting time in your lives. It also means that you’ll feel much more relaxed for your portraits on the wedding day as you’ll already know what to expect. Pictures from the engagement shoot are great to use for your “Save the Date” invites, if you have a wedding website or printed in a lovely book that you can use as a guest book on your wedding day.
How Do We Choose A Location?
I love it when couples choose a location or activity that means something to them for an engagement shoot. This could be anything from the place you had your first date to your favourite weekend activity. Whatever you choose, it should tell your story. Most of the most beautiful sessions take place outdoors, using natural light. If you have a location in mind but are not sure if it will be suitable, just ask!
