tips for brides - 4: Book an Engagement Shoot
TIP 4 - : Book an Engagement Shoot
Think about booking an engagement shoot with your chosen photographer. I usually shoot these a month or two before the wedding at the venue itself.
I find that it helps everyone relax in front of the camera and builds a rapport amongst us, which is a great thing because on the wedding day it means you will be relaxed in my company and that way I will get very natural shots, which are always better than posed shots.
It can also be a long time between booking a photographer and seeing them on the wedding day, so this helps break that gap too.
Finally, not only do you get some lovely shots of you as a couple, but you can opt to have a photo with a large mount present at your reception for all your guests to sign. When I see these fill up with messages from family and friends over the night it hits home how personal and special a memento this is.
Some of my wedding packages include an engagement shoot in the overall price, with the mounted photo only £60 extra. See my website page here for current package prices:
Yikes, I’ve already thought of two more amazing tips! I’m tempted to put them all up right now, but all in good time!
