Engagement / Pre – Wedding Shoots

Why are engagement shoots a great idea prior to your wedding day?

Are you considering having an Engagement shoot? They are super worth it! I absolutely adore shooting engagement shoots. Its a fantastic chance to create some amazing images of you both, in some beautiful locations, plus they are super fun!

Engagement shoots give you a chance to feel more confident in front of a camera – most couples have never had professional photos taken so this is a perfect chance! If you are feeling shy, apprehensive or nervous about how you look in photos, then a engagement shoot is a definite must! You will learn some light poses that I use on your wedding day however I focus on getting the most natural images of you both without it feeling too cheesy or forced. Throughout the shoot, we chat and have a laugh and I show you what I have been creating on my camera so you have an idea of what the photos are going to look like. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera so I give you some tips and tricks to ensure amazing for your big day to ensure you get those WOW photos!

Its also a great opportunity to get to know me as your photographer and how I work and hopefully get you more excited for your wedding day! More importantly, it gives you a chance to spend some quality time with each other.

In terms of location, as a South East UK photographer covering Sussex, Kent, Surrey, and Hampshire,  I love shooting everywhere, whether it be in an urban area in front of some of the amazing local landmarks, in the countryside in a pretty park or maybe at your wedding venue we will plan a location that will be perfect for you both! I have had the pleasure of capturing engagement shoots in then likes of London Royal parks such as Richmond Park, Greenwich Park and Regents Park along with other stunning locations such as Kew Gardens, Durdle Door and Astridge Wood.

Or maybe your planning a surprise proposal shoot and would love to have it captured by a professional photographer. Proposal shoots are wonderful to shoot and they are great to tie in with an engagement after!

So if you are newly engaged or even if you are just a couple wanting to get some lovely photos together, I would love to hear your ideas so please get in touch!

Below are some examples of some fun engagement shoots I have had the pleasure of capturing!
