After you have booked me as your wedding photographer, I always offer a pre-wedding shoot. I think it is actually a very useful prep for your wedding day. Many couples getting married will have never had any experience in front of a professional photographer and can often feel a little uncomfortable and nervous. An engagement shoot allows you to get these feeling out of the way before your wedding day. You will feel much more relaxed as you have already had me following you around with my camera. And you will learn how to pose naturally together making your wedding day much easier and stress-free.
The time we spend together will also give us the chance to get to know one another better, which again makes for a much more natural set of wedding pictures. I pride myself on the relationship and trust I build up with my clients. I think the reason my wedding photography is emotive and natural is that I have taken the time to get to know my couples. I make sure you are relaxed and comfortable with me and that I can fade into the background waiting to take that perfect shot where your love shines through. An engagement shoot is an ideal place for all of these things to happen.
Trust in me and the process is another big factor in the perfect wedding pictures. After couples have had an engagement photography session and had their images back they are thrilled with the outcome. It really helps to cement their trust and confidence for their wedding day. They know they can look good, and they don’t have to worry about all the little things they usually do. They can head into their big day knowing that I will produce a photographic story of their day that is beautiful and that they can treasure forever.
For all of those reasons, I would absolutely recommend you add an engagement session to your wedding photography package. They can be shot in a place that is near and dear to you, or in your wedding venue. I’m happy to travel to make sure your pre-wedding photography is as special and treasured as possible. Below are a few of my favourite images from recent shoots. If you have booked me as your photographer and are still unsure if you want to add the pre-wedding shoot please contact me and we can chat it through.
