Your Engagement Shoot
Your engagement shoot should say "we're in love and excited about our wedding" so with that in mind, when I show sneak previews for you to view on my Facebook page it's not only meant to tease & excite you, but also excite your guests in the run up to your wedding day. An engagement shoot can help you feel more relaxed on the big day as we can get to know each other in advance. You get used to being in-front of the camera so your less aware of it & more feel relaxed, also I will get to know what you are comfortable with.
If you have any ideas in mind that you would particularly like to try prior to the big day, we can do that plus we can iron out any little concerns you may have about the day itself. The main aim is it should be fun. So lets be creative.
The shoot is 1- 2 hours coverage at a location of your choice. Think carefully about your location, try to pick somewhere you love or that is special to you, or theme it around something you both enjoy. Maybe bring along something thats special to you both or a prop, something fun to use.
Try to think outside the box, we have so much time, unlike on your wedding day when it can sometimes be a little restricted. I want to make your engagement shoot unique to you and to have that “Wow” factor. Its also another little reminder for you to look back on in the years to come.
Your Engagemet shoot images will be uploaded to a private online gallery & you will recive a link to take you there where you will be able to view & share the images with your families & friends. You will also receive the images via digital download.
