The perfect way to prepare for your wedding photography is to have a pre-wedding or engagement photo shoot. It is now far more popular and normal for couples to do engagement photographs
I can offer this intimate and brief introduction to being photographed prior to your wedding.
Why not book an Engagement Photo Shoot ?
How does an engagement photo shoot work?
This consists of an informal session of a few hours where you will both get used to being photographed and be fully relaxed in front of the camera. This ensures that on the wedding day the ‘ice’ has already been ‘broken’ and we are free to continue where we left off and really push the photography together. All of your engagement photo poses will be purely relaxed and natural.
Why should couples take engagement photos?
The process is ideal in order to shed any apprehension and resolve any feelings of doubt that either of you may feel towards being photographed and you will be both fully prepared with the experience that you will now have, to embrace every precious opportunity of your wedding day.

How early should you do your engagement photos?
Your pictures can be shot whenever you like. It may be an idea to not have them taken too far away from your wedding day, as you want to use this as a ‘rehearsal’ to your wedding pictures and do not want to forget the details of the experience in preparation for your big day.
What outfit should I wear for engagement photos ? Do I have to dress up for engagement photos?
A very common question is what kind of clothes do you wear for engagement photos?
Comfortable clothes should be a priority and always wear whatever makes you feel like you.
Some couples love the opportunity to dress up more formally, while others prefer a comfortable but still smart look.

Should I change outfits for engagement photos ?
A good idea is to have at least one change of outfit. This ensures that we get at least two different looks and can also mean that we can cover the very formal and the ‘casual date’ looks for your pictures. Long dresses that flow, by their very nature will not only add movement to your pictures, but can also look very flattering and look really natural.
For the very casual couple that dislikes the more formal attire, avoid anything that may make you look stiff and awkward and anything that you simply do not like. Remember we are after securing amazing pictures of you both together.
What is the best colour to wear for engagement photos ?
To avoid boring results, an idea is to focus on coordinating your colours together and steer clear of using the same colours and tones.
How do you not be awkward in engagement photos? How do you look natural in engagement photos?
I have many, many years experience at photographing people from all walks of life. I can show you how to pose comfortably and how to lean on each other and relax together. These lessons will be invaluable for your forthcoming wedding photography.
