What is an engagement shoot?
An engagement shoot is, quite simply, a portrait session of you and your future husband/wife. Some clients opt for an engagement shoot to fulfill a specific purpose. Sometimes its for save the date cards or just for little keepsakes. Maybe to display them at your wedding reception for guests to see?. Or maybe even to showcase them on Facebook/Instagram for friends an family to see. It is a great opportunity to have some professional photos of just the two of you during this wonderful time in your lives.
How does it work?
The first thing that we do is choose a date for the shoot. Then, we pick a location, be it somewhere special, or maybe a trip to the north Norfolk coast (always popular). we then set a time for the shoot. On the day of the shoot itself, we will meet at the pre-determined location and get started! To start with, we will take a walk and stop at various locations. I am looking for beautiful light, great backgrounds and interesting compositional scenarios. I will give you gentle guides of interaction (poses) throughout the walk. I want to see how you are together and how you're comfortable. If you are less inclined to public displays of affection, Don't worry. I won't have you do anything you are not comfortable with or that feels natural to you. Some poses will include a simple walk hand in hand away from the camera or get you stand close together holding one another.
The idea of the shoot, is to help you guys with any nerves of being photographed before the big day. Essentially, we have a laugh for 90 minutes and you come away feeling much more relaxed.
After 3-4 days I will send you around 20-30 images for you to keep.
How much does it cost?
They are available FREE to anyone interested in my wedding package, but due to a full wedding calendar, engagement shoots are only available on selected dates. Please email for availability
