I really, really love to photograph engagement shoots. I include them in all my packages. From my vast experience as a wedding photographer, most people are not super confident in front of the camera. Being professionally photographed is not an everyday occurrence. I want my clients to feel as relaxed as possible on their wedding day. Relaxed wedding photography, real unposed moments full of giggles and smiles are the most heart-melting warm fuzzy feeling photographs to me.
What happens on an engagement shoot?
We go for a walk, have a chat, take some pictures.
There are a handful of stunning backdrops I regularly use in Yorkshire, including Shipley Glen, Saltaire, Ilkley Moor and Otley Chevin.
Children and dogs are encouraged to join in if you have them.
It’s nice to get to know you both a bit better before the big day and see how you are as a couple naturally. Engagement shoots are also useful to have a catch up in person before your wedding.
What do you get from an engagement shoot?
A collection of pictures from the engagement shoot will be delivered on your USB with your wedding pictures.
