ENGAGEMENTS

Engagement photoshoots or pre-wedding photoshoots can happen at any point before your big day, it lasts for a couple of hours at a location of your choice. I highly recommend having an engagement shoot, you may be thinking its a waste of time or it’s not necessary, but there are so many reasons why you should consider having one. Firstly, you get to know me! We will have a giggle and you can practice being in front of the camera with your partner and it will allow you to reconnect with them in a relaxed setting. I’ll cover the arty-creative photos and the classic-emotional photos too, you’ll get to see how I shoot and work and I’ll get to see how you and your partner are on camera too, it all serves as a great warm-up to the big day. From an engagement photo shoot, I welcome feedback, perhaps there’s an angle you don’t care for, but such information helps eliminate any uncertainty on the day and this ultimately makes you feel comfortable that on your wedding day I am there understanding you. Once you see your engagement images and get excited about them, you’ll have more confidence in yourselves and in me. When the time comes to tie the knot, you’ll look forward to having your pictures taken, instead of dreading the thought of having a camera pointed at you all day!

pre-wedding photoshoot with Ed and Rupal in Greenwich , couple portraits, wedding season 2019

At the weekend, I went across to Greenwich to meet Ed and Rupal for their pre-wedding photoshoot. I’ve spoken to these guys quite a bit and so it was lovely to finally meet them finally face to face. We hung out for a few hours, took some photos, had a giggle and discussed all things wedding.

Pre-wedding / engagement photoshoot in London with June and LJ

I met with June and LJ at Greenwich for their pre-wedding / engagement photoshoot. June really wanted to capture some of Greenwich’s beautiful architecture in the background, so we did just that. These guys were so cute together, laughing all afternoon, an absolute dream for me to photograph. I am very excited to photograph these two again for their classy wedding in central London in a few months time.

engagement photoshoot in Dorset

I met Lauren and Tom in Dorset for their pre-wedding / engagement photo-shoot a few weeks back. I literally jumped for joy when they chose Hengisbury Head in Christchurch as the location for the shoot, it just so happens to be one of my favourite places (I grew up in Christchurch, Dorset and have many happy memories of Hengisbury Head). It was a rather chilly April evening and we lost the light pretty quickly but we managed to still get some half-decent shots out the time we had together.  I can’t wait to hang out with this cool pair again, in July, for their big Dorset wedding.
