Engagement shoots are a great way to get to know your wedding photographer and it’s a fantastic opportunity to build a rapport so both parties get to know each other.
Whilst some couples are naturally at ease posing for photos there are many that are not and often feel self-conscious. Couples often say that having had an engagement shoot prior to their wedding helps them to feel more relaxed in front of the camera on the day, and makes them less camera shy. The result is better photographs on the day.
We often take the couple out to a scenic location for the shoot and living and working in the Lake District these are plentiful. You will end up with some stunning photographs taken amidst breathtaking scenery, which you can incorporate into your wedding day if you like: many couples use the photos in their guest books or on their invitations. We even had a couple who used the engagement photos to print on the “funny money” that they used in the evening casino!
If you have recently got engaged and would like to discuss your engagement shoot contact Simon Anderson Photography.
