Why you should book one of our free engagement shoots............

Read on for some terrific reasons to take advantage of an engagement session and don't give up reading after the first few paragraphs - The last reason is very valid for everyone..................

The sessions are so much fun!

It may seem a little daunting standing in front of a camera but we are so easy going that those nerves will be gone within a few minutes. As photographers, myself and Fiona know that if we are all having fun, our photos will turn out so much better.

We asked one of our recent gorgeous couple, Jodie & Jack to help us out with some feedback from our latest engagement shoot:

Jodie told us:

" We were both a little nervous as we had never taken part in a photo shoot before and we didn't know what to expect, but as soon as we met you guys, you were both fun and bubbly which made us feel really at ease. We had a great laugh and it was good to see how you both worked. It was great getting to know yourself and Fiona and it confirmed to us that you were the right photographers for us for our Wedding day"

(Aww thanks Jodie & Jack!)

Your engagement photos will look great on wedding stationary or on your Instagram

Imagine sending out your save the dates or arriving at your Wedding breakfast with personalised stationary that features professional photos of you both having fun.

Your close family and friends will love the personal touch and they will be more inclined to keep your invitation in plain sight as a reminder of your exciting big day that's coming up!

Also, more and more couples are documenting their run up to their wedding day on a specific wedding instagram account. What better content than having your own professional engagement photos to upload for your followers to see!

We go to every engagement session with the main goal of getting to know you a little better before your big day. We pride ourselves on our personal approach with enables us to catch the natural, beautiful moments of your wedding day.

Meeting myself and Fiona before your wedding will put yourselves at ease so that you both know what to expect from us on your day.

When was the last time you both had your photo taken that wasn't a selfie !?!

Let's face it, none of us are professional models but that shouldn't stop any of us finding the time to be treated as one for the day.

The only professional photos that any of us get during our lifetime are our wedding day photos and family photos. Spend a little bit of time for yourselves and document this special time in your lives. You'll look back at these photos one day and remember how happy you both look together. That feeling will be priceless.
