Engagement Photography

I love a good engagement shoot and really recommend them for a couple of reasons:

    1. If you’re even the slightest bit camera-shy or concerned about how you’ll look in your photos on your big day an an engagement shoot is the best way to prepare. Getting engagement photos are a great primer, you’ll learn a few poses and get used to having some crazy-lady bossing you about with a camera in her hand!
    2. I’m yet to meet a couple that doesn’t get even more excited about their wedding day after their engagement shoot.

An engagement shoot is also a great way to get to know your wedding photographer but there’s no obligation to do your engagement shoot with the same person that’s shooting your big day.

Engagement photography in the UK and worldwide

I do engagement photos up and down the country but I’ve spent most of my time shooting around London and Bath & Bristol. I’ve even travelled across Europe to shoot engagements. Wherever you’re based or wherever you want to get some amazing photos (yeah, an engagement shoot is a great excuse to travel!) get in touch and I’d love to discuss your plans more.
