I get to see how you are in front of the camera
This is probably the most important part of an engagement shoot! A lot of people have never been photographed up close and personal by a professional photographer before their wedding day and have no idea what to expect. It’s completely normal to feel unnatural in front of a camera so PLEASE don’t worry if you’re feeling nervous. I’m here to help you feel as relaxed as possible and I promise you’ll feel so much better after your engagement shoot and wonder why you were even nervous to start with.
Then we come on to the style of photos, I’ll chat to you about your personalities, things you love doing together, the type of couple you are etc. This isn’t me just being nosey but it also helps me determine the type of photos I take of you. So many couples think that because they’re getting married, they MUST have lovey dovey, romantic photos of themselves, regardless of whether they’re actually a romantic couple. I can guarantee you’ll feel mega uncomfortable and you probably won’t like your photos either, because it just doesn’t look like you. Bit of advice, DO YOU! Ignore what you read on the internet, ignore what friends or family tell you, have photos that reflect you and your personalities, you’ll immediately feel more relaxed.
Every couple I’ve had, that comes along for an engagement shoot is always more relaxed around the camera on their big day.
