Engagement Shoots

We like to offer an "Engagement Shoot" a chance to be the star of your own photoshoot, its fun and removes any nerves about photographed on the day, we will ensure that you look great and you can pick a location that has meaning to you both. 

In common with other leading wedding photographers we include an "Engagement Shoot" in most of our collections. These are the norm with high end photographers in the USA where they are very much appreciated as part of the wedding itself. Couples go on a "date" with a photographer! Going to a favourite place, perhaps where the proposal took place,  perhaps taking a boat ride or a ride on a steam train or.....whatever ! 

The pictures are a mixture of photo journalism and  quasi fashion shoot, couples are often a little nervous of being photographed but we put people at ease within minutes and ensure couples look fabulous and come the Wedding Day, couples love the photography and are not nervous about how they look or react to the camera. The end product may be fine art prints, photo books, sideshows to music, web galleries....much as the wedding itself.
A favourite is the Signature Print, a framed picture from the engagement shoot, with an extra wide mount to allow guests to sign and send the couples their good wishes which is left at the reception, unlike a traditional book that is tucked away in a drawer.
