Getting engaged is probably the most life changing thing you have done. It's a small window of time, perhaps only a few months or years with a huge impact on the rest of your life. In this tiny window of time, something amazing happened. You found someone. And they found you. You fell in love. They fell in love. They asked. You said yes! This moment of time changes the course of your lives forever - and those of your friends, family and your children.
This time should be preserved and marked down in history. It should be revisited and enjoyed time and again. Your engagement pictures should be shown to future generations, to tell your love story. There is something so beautiful about being connected to a photograph. One that you can touch and feel. One you will hang on your wall and display in all its glory.
Still need convincing? Read on for yet more reasons to hire a professional photographer for your engagement pictures!
You are nervous about your wedding photographs
Every Bride & Groom I have ever met say this. It doesn't matter how many times you've been photographed before (if ever!), you still want to look and feel amazing in your wedding photos. An Engagement Session (sometimes known as a Pre-Wedding Shoot) is the best way to alleviate any fears or nerves before your wedding day.
- You don't know how to 'pose'
Posing has become a bit of a bad word regarding photos - we can blame the selfie for that. To create beautiful imagery for you I've spent years perfecting the skill of posing people of all heights, shapes and sizes in to poses that shape your body and flatter you, so don't worry, I've got you covered! I'll help you with how to stand, where to put your hands, where to look, when to smile and when not to. You'll learn a couple of different poses that suit you as a couple and by the time your big day arrives, you'll be a pro!
- We'll get to know each other
As your wedding photographer, I'll be with you on the most important day of your lives and that is a huge honour and a privilege for me. I want you to feel comfortable around me so you can relax and enjoy your special day. Your Engagement Session gives us plenty of time to talk, laugh and get to know one another so we'll be good friends by the time your wedding arrives!
- Engagement Sessions are included in all our wedding collections
Complimentary. I believe in the power and confidence an Engagement Photo Session gives you so much that I want you to experience it for yourselves; I want you to look and feel incredible!
- Save the Dates
If you haven't sent them out yet, this is a perfect way to create beautiful unique save the dates for your wedding guests. You can also use the photographs in an Engagement Guest Book (included in our Gold Label Collection), slideshow or display at your wedding reception.
- If you're looking for art for your home, your Engagement Session can provide diversity in your images
You don't want all your pictures to be of you in your same dress and tuxedo or taken at the same time of year!
