So why book an engagement shoot?

More and more couples are choosing to have an engagement shoot, partly to get to know me their photographer and for me to get to know them, It can prepare you for all the attention of the big day, and of the camera which will be following you throughout the day and because it's just so much fun and a lovely memory to keep.

Your day is still a long way off but there is still so much to do and organise. Meeting up with me for an hour will tick one more thing off your list, the worry of "will my photographer turn up", "will I know how to pose", "will I feel awkward" will all disappear after this session. We will work together to get to know each other, you'll get to know me and how easy going I am. We'll know your likes and dislikes and I guarantee you'll be laughing and joking minutes in to the session, mainly when i'm climbing through trees, or lying in puddles.

We have all had photographs taken of ourselves, some of us love it and some of us hate it, we can take an amazing selfie (after the 100th time) but point a camera at our face and it's hide behind a hand, turn the head or pull the weirdest of smiles...lol and that's just what I do

This is where I come in and why it's the most important reason to have an engagement shoot. The chances are you haven't had many opportunities with your partner to pose romantically. We will learn what works for you and what doesn't. You will laugh when I tell you how many couples look at each other and say "how do we cuddle" when i ask them to give each other a hug, or the hysterical laughs when I ask to look at each other, this will be you I guarantee it...lol

It's all about you

Life is lived at such a busy pace and even the big day itself will fly by, you'll be dragged from Auntie to Uncle, to Cousin and nan, hardly getting a minute together, so this engagement shoot really is about taking time just for the two of you.

Many of my couples have children and dogs, if you would like to bring them along for part of the session then that's absolutely fine, they are a huge part of your life but as I have emphasised above, this session really is about the two of you and having that one hour of quality time. Why not even tag a pub lunch or a cream tea on the end of the session

 

Where shall we go?

Location is entirely up to you, is there a place that you go as a couple, somewhere that reminds you of a happy time, where you got engaged maybe. I tend to take my couples to national trust gardens, woods and obviously here in Cornwall to the coast. I love autumnal colours, wrapping up warm and feeling all snug whilst it's bitterly crisp in the air

 Or towards the end of Summer maybe, the gardens are still flourishing, and into the evening you get that lovely golden tone throughout the sky.

 

What to wear:

For some this is a time to get dressed up, spend some time on hair and makeup and really feel a bit special. For me this is a time to relax and have some fun and be comfortable, though turning up in your best pj's might not be the look we are going for, though saying that, a nice chilled morning in a hotel room or living room could work well in this attire and be quite a fun photo session.

My only recommendation would be to keep your clothing plain, no big logo's or sport shirts. Remember feel comfortable and enjoy, smart casual always works well
