While you’re probably busy planning everything for the big day it can be easy to overlook this equally wonderful stage in your lives - being engaged! It’s a time of anticipation, love and joy so why not celebrate with an engagement photo shoot!
Unlike your wedding day, when you are surrounded by friends and family, an engagement shoot is all about you as a couple and as individuals. The shoot is slow paced and allows you to really soak in the atmosphere while the excitement from the proposal is still fresh and visions for the future are at the forefront of your mind. Whether you’re camera shy or a photogenic vixen an engagement shoot is also a great opportunity to boost your confidence and comfort in front of the camera. The idea of having a camera following you around can be daunting so it’s great to get any initial awkwardness or anxiety out of the way beforehand.
Also, it allows me to get to know you a little better; to see how you interact with each other and to learn about your personalities. It’s a great time for me to hear your love story and to chat about your wedding plans. Equally, you’ll be able to communicate what you like and don’t like as well as any preferences you have for angles, expressions, lighting and editing styles. This will allow me to tailor the photos and experience to suit you and your special day.
If you would like to know more about how an engagement shoot can be a truly fun filled experience, please contact me to arrange an informal chat.
