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