You’re engaged. Congratulations! It’s a really exciting milestone in it’s own right and capturing that in a set of engagement photos is a really good idea for a number of reasons.
As an engagement photographer it’s a privilege for me to capture this really exciting moment! But more than that, it’s a valuable test-run. It’s a chance for you to get comfortable in front of the camera so when you turn up on your wedding day you are relaxed, natural (and, as a result, looking your very most beautiful) for the all important wedding photographs. It’s a chance to have a go at this posing malarky without the pressure of having all your friends and family and, y’know, the enormity of your wedding going on around you.
This shoot is all about you two! And it’s a chance for us to meet and get to know each other, understand your vision, and try out some unique ideas. It’s a chance to get creative and have a bit of fun! I like to make it as informal as possible, a chance for us to chat.
Engagement photos can be all kinds of useful during wedding planning too. I do a variety of photography products including guest books, canvas wraps, framed photographs with a large mount for your guests to add their good wishes and thank you cards (shot early enough and I can provide the images for your Save the Date cards and invitations). Engagement shoots can be added to your wedding package for a fee of £200, or £250 if you’re not booking a wedding photograph package. Prints and disks of images are charged based on your requirements.
