So I always get asked if pre-shoot/engagement shoots are a good idea? And the answer is simple…yes!!!! I think they are so important! I feel like they are an incredible way for us to get to know each other and for the two of you to become closer.
This moment in your life of being an engaged couple is so special, so why not document that love? As photographer I am all about freezing moments in time. For me its about remembering that love you had for each before the wedding and the reason why you are getting married.
I also feel like engagement shoots are lovely way for us to get to know each other. It’s so nice to rock up to a wedding and feel like we are already friends. It’s so important to me that we get along and they both of you and your entire family can feel relaxed around me. I don’t want to feel like another supplier at your wedding, I want to be your friend.
What couples have said…
I asked one of my couples what they thought about their Engagement Shoot and this is what they said…
For us we 100% feel like the pre-shoot made us more relaxed (especially Tom)! When it is just us two he loves a good photograph but the thought of someone else taking them made him “weird out” a bit. Honestly once you started shooting with us that went away and he really enjoyed the day. It helped us get to know you a lot more and your way of working.It was super relaxed, none intrusive and just a right good laugh for us both!
We actually feel it brought us closer together. Looking back at them all our friends have said how in love we look and for us we were just being ourselves so the photo’s mean so much to us now. (And especially everything that is going on now it’s so nice to look back at and smile about that lovely sunny day in a city we love)
It really made us feel SUPER excited for the wedding day! We knew we were getting an amazing photographer when we booked you but being with you that day and seeing the outcome just blew us away. We cannot wait to have the memories of one of our most special days captured forever. ❤️
