After making the important choice of who to photograph your wedding, taking a little time to get to know them can sometimes make the difference between feeling slightly awkward in your wedding photos, and natural photos full of life, character and emotion. It’s not every day that you have someone with a camera following you around, so that can feel uncomfortable and unnatural.

I love the engagement shoots because they’re a great way to get to know the couple before the big day; to see how they are together, how to get the best photos of them, what feels most comfortable for them, and so they can see how I work, what to expect on the wedding day itself, and discover by the end that they are so much more comfortable in front of the camera than they thought they would be!

The session is relaxed, fun, gives you an opportunity to perhaps go somewhere significant that you wouldn’t get to go to on the wedding day, and have photos that represent you as a couple.
