Is an engagement photo shoot right for you?
Considering an Engagement Session
I love pre wedding shoots! They are a great way for us to break the ice and also a good opportunity to get some relaxed portraits of you together documenting this exciting time in your lives. Let’s face it is not often you have an excuse to get have yourselves photographed as a couple in this way. People are often a little uncomfortable about the idea of it, but it’s a great way to see how you can get beautiful, relaxed images.
It really is a fun thing to do and nice to look back on when you hit your milestone anniversaries.
Seriously though a pre wedding session is a great way to get over the negative mindset of “I hate having my picture taken” it can help to get over the deer in headlights stage and give you the chance to relax in front of the camera.
My approach to a pre wedding shoot is to never really pose my couples. All I ask of them is that they have a little wander and a chat with one another, engage and enjoy being together. The best photographs for me are always the ones when the moments I capture are interaction between the couple and each other rather that the couple and me. It is about getting used to having me there without feeling like you are being photographed in an intrusive manner.
An engagement photo-shot can be a useful way to hear more about the couples story and I can begin to build a relationship with them so that on the wedding day it I do not feel like I am a stranger.
