The engagement photoshoot is a great way for us to get to know each other before the wedding. It’s a chance for you to see how I work and the kind of photos we can get. Once we’ve had a practice you’ll be much more confident about photos. Then when the day comes having your photographs taken just won’t be something you’re worried about.
Don’t worry too much about the name ‘engagement photographs’. It’s nothing formal and of course it doesn’t matter if you’ve been engaged a while already. Mostly it’s a chance to get some gorgeous photos of the two of you before the big day which are great for invitations, table names, guest books, gifts, all sorts. I’m always meeting people at weddings who ask if I was “the photographer that took those lovely photos”, and I love it.
We’ll meet up at your wedding venue if possible, or a park or garden that you like. You can dress up or be casual, whatever makes you feel good. The important thing is that you’ll come away with the best photos you’ve ever had of the two of you, and be even more excited about the wedding to come. We’ll need to meet a little before the wedding anyway to talk about all the plans, so it might be convenient to do your engagement photographs at the same time. But if you want to get them done straight away to use them for things that’s absolutely fine, and we’ll talk details closer to the date.
For more info or to book your shoot, please get in touch.
Your engagement shoot is great for practice but also to create some beautiful photos of the two of you together in the run up to the big day. We can do it at your venue, or any park or garden you like. Ellie and Tom asked us to meet them at their favourite spot for some gorgeous photos in the golden hour. You can see our behind the scenes video from their shoot here.
“Claire and I wanted to thank you for the photos we received yesterday from our evening photo-shoot at Easton Neston church in Towcester. The results flattered us greatly, which must be the mark of a really good photographer. We are very much looking forward to working with you again on our wedding day in August.” - Matt & Claire, Dodmoor House
