Why should I have an engagement/ pre wedding photo shoot? by TaraD

Firstly what is an engagement/ pre wedding photo shoot?

It is a photo shoot approximately 3-6 months before your wedding where you meet your photographer, often at a different location to your wedding and spend 30-40 minutes taking some photographs.

What is the point of this? Well the best way to think of it is what is the point of a hair or make up trial or a meal tasting? These appointments help you to finalise important details for your day. They help you to work through any plans and get on the exact same page with your vendors.

It also helps to:

  • Build a relationship with your photographer. We don’t turn up as strangers on your wedding day as we have already worked together.
  • Figure out any worries that you may have about being in front of the camera.
  • Help with some posing tips to make you feel more comfortable.
  • Have your photo taken in a much more relaxed setting than on the wedding day, so that on the wedding day itself you can relax into it. You will have seen the photographs from your pre wed session and feel completely reassured that you are in safe hands and know that your photographs will be AMAZING.

We offer all of our clients a complimentary pre wedding photo shoot. The reason we don’t charge is that it is important to us to get to know our couples before their big day.

Photography is personal and we want to portray YOUR story.

Proposal Day by TaraD

SENTIMENTAL LOCATION

If there is a place that you and your partner love, such as a beach or your usual Sunday walk….

Pack a picnic and write will ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME’ in the sand or if it’s raining bring an umbrella and have ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME’ written inside it, so it will be seen when you pop it open!!

Piñata

Have some fun!!! Surprise your partner some day after work by making dinner, have a piñata filled with your partner’s favourite sweets and have the engagement ring in the piñata too!!!

Music

If you’re musical , why not learn a song that your partner loves or that is sentimental to the two of ye and throw into the song at some stage ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME’ or else put together a slide show with pictures of the two of you and the song in the background, at the end have pictures coming up with the big question on them!!

Family

Get the family involved, have everyone hiding waiting to celebrate the minute your partner says ‘YES’ to your proposal!!

Pets

If you have a dog and can train them to carry the ring box over to your partner or have them wearing a bandana saying will you marry me?!

Hire a professional photographer

Capture the moment you ask the question and look of excitement and shock to the passionate kiss, these are beautiful moments to capture. Keeping hidden and out of sight a good photographer will capture amazing pictures of your magical moment!

Creative

You don’t have to propose with a ring, just the words ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME?’ is enough to sweep your partner off their feet. You can propose with anything from a favorite flower, a particularly coloured stone or shell anything that symbolizes you as a couple, yer hobbies or interests!!

Just remember to have fun and get creative!!!
