At this time of year we tend to be photographing a lot of Engagement Shoots for couples getting prepared for their upcoming summer wedding. So I thought it would be a good idea to offer some Engagement Shoot tips for how you can make the most from this session.
Clients quite often ask what they should wear to their Engagement Shoot, and it’s true that a well-planned wardrobe can make things look a lot better. We’re not necessarily fans of completely colour-coordinated outfits, but making sure that your colours don’t clash, and that you don’t have any prominent logos on display, will make things easy on the eye. Dressing up smart is a good way to go, but just as long as you feel completely comfortable and able to “be yourselves”!
Another of my Engagement Shoot tips would be to give yourselves plenty of time to get ready! It sounds obvious but there’s nothing worse than arriving flustered and stressed for a photo shoot that is designed to show how much you and your future spouse are in love with each other!
Sometimes clients can be a little concerned with posing, and how they should stand/sit whist we’re taking they’re photos. The first thing I would say is be natural, as Bec & I prefer to take natural looking photos whenever possible. But sometimes you can need a little help to look natural when you know there’s two people with huge cameras staring down at you! Bec & I are experts at knowing how you should position yourselves so that you’ll look best. Don’t worry – you’re in good hands!
My final Engagement Shoot tip is an old classic – relax and have fun! The shoot really should be enjoyed and provide you with photos that you can look back on for years to come. It shouldn’t be part of the stress that comes with planning a wedding, it should be a welcome break from it. We love getting to know our couples through photographing their Engagement Shoot – and celebrating with a coffee & cake afterwards!
If you haven’t booked your Engagement Shoot yet just get in touch and we’ll get a date sorted – and hopefully these tips will come in handy!
