The Importance Of An Engagement Shoot.

   Engagement sessions are one of my favourite things to photograph. It's a great opportunity to get to know my couples before their wedding and see how they interact with each other. A lot of people don't feel comfortable being photographed. This gives them an idea of how I work and puts them at ease before the most important day of their lives!

   Reasons I think engagement shoots are great and a must have....

 The more time you spend with your photographer the more comfortable you'll be in front of the lens. A relaxed and happy couple make for much nicer natural images of the two of you. Remember, your photographer will be with you for HOURS on your wedding day capturing all those intimate moments and preserving one of the most emotional days of your life. Not only does this give me the opportunity to get to know you but you also get to know me! 

 Ladies...this can be the perfect time to do a trial run for your hair/make-up! Wedding make-up tends to be heavier for photos so this is a great opportunity to see how it will look in the final photos!

 A lot of my couples have used the images from their engagement session in their wedding decor, whether it's a centrepieces for their tables, hanging photos around their venue or a great big framed image with room around for all your guests to sign! 

For an extra personal touch you could use one of the images from your shoot for your 'Save The Date'....

A lot of my couples also have kids or dogs, what better way than to show off your beautiful family than bringing them along and including them! 

On top of this it's just a perfect chance to have some quality time with each other before your big day, away from the stress of planning and to create some beautiful images for the two of you!
