An engagement shoot creates a unique relationship and a sincere and mutual trust between us. The more I know about you the more I can relate to you and learn the reason you want to be together. It is here, at the onset, that I can capture intimate interactions and passion between you both. I get to have the pleasure of finding out your perfect style of photography and also what is expected of me as your photographer.
It is during this time that you get to practise in front of the camera.
The first question I am asked by a couple is "what should we wear?". You want to feel comfortable and your clothing reflects you. If your'e excited to dress up then wear a gown or get your fiancé to wear braces and a bow tie. This will make for amazing dramatic portraits. A more quirky, relaxed feel also works and can reflect a certain personality/style. Lace, leather, boots and lots of layering and textures can make for an awesome contrast. Some clients book a hair and make-up appointment prior to the engagement shoot and if they feel beautiful and more confident it reflects in their images.
