Why have an engagement photoshoot?

There are plenty of brides and grooms-to-be who cannot wait to get in front of the camera on their special day, but equally, there are many couples who are nervous at the thought of being photographed. If you love being in front of the lens, then an engagement photoshoot is an ideal opportunity to have some fun before your wedding. On the other hand, if you’re feeling anxious, it can be a good way to help you become more relaxed and get to know the process of wedding photography.

“…thanks so much for yesterday, I think we’re both a lot more relaxed in front of a camera now!! The pictures look amazing…”


What happens during a photoshoot?

A typical photoshoot lasts around 45-60 minutes. On the day, wear something that you feel comfortable in, and something that reflects your personality. It’s supposed to be a fun and casual photoshoot, so there is no dress-code. During the session, hints and tips will be given on how to pose, so couples are fully prepared and know what to expect on the wedding day. Have a bit of fun and boost your confidence at the same time!

“…would like to say we love our engagement photos very much and we are look forward to the wedding photos later this year – thank you!!”


What happens after the photoshoot?

On average, the typical photoshoot will result in around 50-100 images in a unique national award-winning style. The set of images is for you to keep and you may use and share them as you wish. They will be made available online in a password-protected gallery should you wish to showcase them to your friends and family. Prints may also be ordered directly from within the gallery.


Where does the photoshoot take place?

The photoshoot is also an ideal opportunity to check out your wedding venue, and engagement photoshoots are often done at the venue itself if possible. This also allows for the scouting of the where the best photographic locations are. Otherwise, with so many stunning locations and venues throughout the country, a beautiful backdrop is rarely hard to find.


How much does the photoshoot cost?

The usual cost for an engagement photoshoot is £195, which includes all travel to an agreed venue, the photoshoot itself, all professional post-processing, and of course, all of your images from the session.

If you book an engagement photoshoot as part of your wedding photography package, then the price is reduced to just £145, which makes it an invaluable low-cost addition to complete your perfect wedding photography experience.
