The Pre-Wedding or Engagement shoot
I can't imagine meeting a bride and groom for the first time on their wedding day! I believe in capturing natural photographs and that requires familiarity and trust between the photographer and the bride and groom. This is one of the main purposes of the pre-wedding shoot.
I start by asking how comfortable the couple are in front of the camera. The usual response is a score of 4 out of 10 or lower but that is exactly why this shoot will help! By the end you will feel comfortable and know that we have captured some great images for you to keep.
The shoot lasts between 60 and 90 minutes and starts with a brief guide on how to look your best on camera; something every bride and groom should know! We then look at different styles of photography so that I can understand your likes and dislikes. My aim is to always leave with totally natural looking images of the couple showing a true connection with each other. If we can achieve that on an engagement shoot (and we will) then the wedding with all its distractions becomes easy!
There are some simple terms and conditions for the engagement shoot, but nothing frightening! and the good news is I am currently offering engagement photography totally free and with no obligation to book me for the wedding; although everyone so far has!
