engagement shoot, why bother?
Your wedding day is going to be a fantastic blur of excitement, joy and emotion. There is truly no other day like it, but believe me, even a full days wedding can flash by in a heartbeat. Time for your wedding portraits will most likely be allocated, between your ceremony and meal.
This one hour window will seem, more the adequate now, but on the day will be filled with hugs, kisses, group photos and love. In reality, even 30 minutes dedicated to your portraits is unlikely.
We typically set aside two to three hours for an engagement shoot. Yes, this is far more time than most other photographers, but we do this so that you never feel under any pressure or rushed. It gives us time to talk, find out what works, and how we can ensure that you look your absolute best, yet natural, relaxed and happy.
We will walk you though, no more than five simple poses, that can be used to create hundreds, if not thousands of looks. We will work to make sure that you feel relaxed, natural and maybe even comfortable in front of the lense (and yes that's both of you)
It gives you a chance to see how we work, and understand the process, so that come your wedding day, 30 minutes is more time than merely enough.
Of course, you will also receive some fantastic photo memories, but more importantly, you will have the confidence to absolutely rock your day!
