We offer engagement photography shoots either as an optional extra with a wedding booking, or as a separate booking for couples who want to celebrate their engagement in a less formal and more carefree way. Our sessions are laid back, relaxed and lots of fun plus, it’s a great way for us to get to know you a little better and to make you feel a little more comfortable in front of the camera. By the end of the shoot we all feel like we know each other that bit more which makes it that much easier and more relaxed should you also choose to book us for your big day.


What’s involved?

The engagement session usually lasts around 2 hours and can take place at a location of your choice. Some couples like to have this at their wedding venue as it’s a perfect opportunity to scope out where we can take group shots and find the perfect place for wedding day portraits etc… it can even be tied in nicely with your tasting session if you decide to have one, or if you are super organised you could even have your pre wedding hair and makeup done on the same day for that extra photoshoot finish! Other couples like to have the shoot somewhere that is special to them or just somewhere they have always wanted to go, a park, a zoo… within reason obviously! as much as we would love to shoot you at the Eiffel tower the euro tickets might be a little out of budget!

More about engagement photo shoots

The pictures we take reflect what is important to us; relationships between people. Whether this is a couple just a few days before they are about to get married or who have just recently got engaged. It is so important to capture these precious moments forever and with feeling and emotion; this is what we aim to do.

We want you to be able to look back on your journey towards marriage together and have images you will want keep forever. Engagement shoot pictures can also make a great addition to a wedding album when displayed together. Once all the wedding planning and preparation is over, these moments can be easily forgotten and this type of informal shoot is a great way to keep a record of all the work you have put in special moments that happened leading up to the big day.

What to wear?

The really great thing about an engagement shoot is that it is so versatile.

You can literally do, wear and think of any theme for the shoot that suits you. It’s all about you as a couple and can incorporate styles or themes that relate to your personality. You can choose to keep it totally simple, focus on the location, go formal and get dressed up, it’s really up to you. Of course if you need some guidance or suggestions we are happy to help and discuss what will work for you.
