Invest in yourself!
To me there is nothing better than meeting your wedding photographer and their camera for an engagement session before your wedding day. It’s a fabulous way to celebrate this time of your lives, most couples I shoot these sessions for have never had professional photos taken before.
Not only does it give you a chance to see how the photographer works with you but it has the benefit of allowing you to feel comfortable in front of the camera. During an engagement session I will learn a lot about how you interact with each other and the things that are important to you. I am invited into one of the best, most personal days of your lives so being able to spend a little time with you before the wedding is an excellent chance for me to get to know you both a little better. When the wedding day comes around we are all comfortable with each other
My engagement sessions are structured around you as a couple and your interests, we will opt for an area that has memories or a significance for you. These sessions are so much fun and you have the luxury of choosing a beautiful location that might not be an option for portraits on your wedding day due to remoteness or travel time. Anything you can imagine I will do my best to bring to reality, I have a professional underwater housing for my camera so if water is your thing lets arrange something!
The sessions are between 30 and 60 minutes long plus any travel time to get to the location. I find that the best sessions are either early in the morning after sunrise or late in the afternoon before sunset, the light at these times is ideal for beautiful images.I also believe that choosing well co ordinated clothing that suits the location makes for outstanding images. I love to come up with concepts or visual props if thats what you would like.
Once we have finished the session I will edit the images and present them to you in an online gallery that you can print or share from, I can also organise any professional art printing that you might want. All of my couples have used their engagement photos for their wedding day in slideshows or canvas/large prints for their guests to sign.
