Sophie & Jon’s Engagement Wedding Photography

When Sophie first got in touch about their Birmingham wedding photography, I was over the moon. These two are amazing people and I really can’t wait till the wedding, to help tell their amazing story. Honestly I really believe engagement wedding photography is so important and I was thrilled to discover they wanted to book a session.

Sophie & Jon picked an absolutely amazing spot for the session, one I will be revisiting! I’d never done a shoot here before, but it blew me away. With that being said, they had me walking around 4 miles 🙂 For me Birmingham wedding photography is about making the most of the surrounds and available light. For this reason I always encourage my clients to do the shoot around sunset, to get that beautiful golden light!

So the day had finally arrived for Sophie & Jon’s engagement wedding photography. We were in for a real treat, the weather was so perfect! It was a clear day with a few scattered clouds, just what I look for.

Why I Think Engagement Wedding Photography Shoots Are So Important?

Nearly all of my couples I meet for engagement wedding photography shoots, have never had professional photo’s before. When booking your Birmingham wedding photographer, I always suggest an engagement shoot and here are the reasons why. Firstly, becoming comfortable with your wedding photographer is so important. This can be make or break when it comes to getting amazing images on your big day. Secondly learning some beautiful poses ahead of the wedding, will make the day so much more fun and less stressful for you both. Having the confidence on your special day will really show in your final photographs.

As a Birmingham wedding photographer most of my photo sessions start in a similar way. At the beginning I like to give you some space to be yourselves and really enjoy the whole experience. The key to great wedding photography is for you to be comfortable around me. I always love it when my clients see me as a friend of the family. If you’re relaxed with me and the camera it really shows. Capturing your cherished memories is what I love to do and this should be such a fun and exciting time!

Sophie & Jon didn’t really know what they wanted from their engagement wedding photography and it was my pleasure to help them get wonderful memories from the experience. These two really were naturals when it came to posing, which allowed me to really express myself creatively and look for unique compositions

Memorable Moments From Their Engagement Shoot

I think for me the most memorable moments from this session would be.. Walking over 4 miles haha, the insane amount of bugs that came out at sunset and the overall beauty of Kingsbury Waterparks. Finally not forgetting how amazing these two were in front of camera! It’s always so nice to watch my clients grow with confidence as the session goes on. By the end Sophie & Jon were pro’s! This is why I love Birmingham engagement wedding photography!
