A perfect opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera...
The engagement shoot is a ‘lifestyle portrait’ session at a location of your choosing, designed to help you get comfortable in front of the camera and become familiar with our shooting style. This will help you feel a lot more relaxed on your wedding day (especially if you're someone who gets a little awkward in front of the camera) as you will have had some practice and will know what to expect. It’s also a great opportunity for us to get to know you a little so that we’re not complete strangers on your wedding day!
We will generally try to schedule the engagement shoot no later than 2 months before the wedding, with the session taking place in the late afternoon for an approx. duration of 1.5 – 2 hours. Late afternoon, just before sunset is the perfect time for photos because of the beautiful low light at this time of day, which tends to be lovely and golden (if its a clear day!).
Choose a setting you're comfortable in, one that you visit often as a couple or a place that you feel reflects your personalities. Don't stress though if you can't think of the perfection location. We’re more than happy to make suggestions if you don’t have anything specific in mind!
