Why should you have an engagement shoot?
Ok, so it’s true. The habit of having a pre-wedding shoot in preparation for your wedding photography does originate in the US. BUT… There’s a reason why engagement shoots are getting increasingly popular with couples everywhere. Ok, maybe even a few. Having an engagement shoot does get you out of your comfort zone, but I promise, 10 minutes into your pre-wedding shoot you’ll get used to it and relax and even (dare I say it) enjoy it by the end of it. You’ll spend an hour or so walking, holding hands, chatting, cuddling and kissing. There’s really not much more to it than that. You’ll also be used to being in front of the camera, be comfortable with the way your photographer communicates with you, what they look for in terms of backgrounds, locations or light; how they position you and how long taking photos of you as a couple actually takes. At the end of it, you will have had a date with your favourite person, without distractions of phones, computers, work, wedding planning or just life in general and after a couple of weeks, you will also receive a nice little set of photographs.
