Elopements and Engagements have one main thing in common. No matter where you are and during what season, the two of you will spend a whole day in a bubble of happiness, enjoying each other’s company and celebrating your love.

Choose your favourite place in the UK or anywhere else in the world, and spend a few hours chatting, laughing and having fun together, while I snap away to capture your memories in colourful and emotion-packed photos that you can share with your loved ones again and again. Have an intimate ceremony that is all about the two of you and your love. What can be more romantic than that?

Then have a crazy party with your friends when you get back and celebrate in style.

It’ll be magic, I hear you say. I’m right there with you.

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.

Your engagement shoot is the dry run for your couple session on your wedding day.

Call it the rehearsal dinner of your wedding photography.
