Why have an engagement shoot

You'd be surprised how many couples tell me that they are super camera shy. If you are worried about posing for your wedding photos, you're certainly not the only ones! Most of us aren't used to professional photo shoots, so the prospect may be a little daunting, or you might not know what to expect.

Have an engagement shoot, and you'll quickly find out that it's all a piece of cake and you won't need to worry about it in the lead up to your wedding day. Once we've spent a bit of time together, had a chat and a giggle, the ice is quickly broken, and you'll soon find that I'm not a terribly scary photographer at all, I hope! :-)

Just like on your wedding day, I'll guide you through some different poses and give you ideas, rather than telling you what to do all the time, and the vast majority of people get right into it and we'll produce some gorgeous natural shots together. And if you are feeling really awkward, well, I'll just tell you how to stand and where to look exactly, and some people just find that easier. It's a great opportunity to figure all that out before your wedding and for us to get to know each other a bit better.

If you're putting together a wedding website, you can show off your beautiful photos to your friends and family too.
