Engagement shoots & why it’s great to have one before your wedding

July 2, 2018

Birmingham Based Wedding Photographer

I include a complementary engagement shoot with all my packages, why?

I treat my engagement shoots as ‘get to know you sessions’ not a photoshoot as such.

Most couples haven’t had their picture taken professionally before so its great for them to see how I work and for them to be more relaxed for their wedding day. They are also great for me too.

It is a great icebreaker as I am going to be around most of the wedding day so I want my couples to be comfortable with me being around.

My engagement shoots are really informal and normally involve sitting down and having a cup of tea first and then having a walk around somewhere like a park and taking a few pictures while I talk your head off.

You also get to see that you have invited a complete crazy lady to your wedding and that you are not going to get a serious and boring traditional wedding photographer.

I love it when couples include their children and their doggies or when couples choose a place that means something special to them like where they got engaged or had their first date.

Here are a few pictures from a few engagement shoots over the last few weeks.
