What is an engagement session?

An extra 1 hour photo session for the Bride and Groom before their wedding day. At first, they came about to capture a photo for your announcement, but nowadays, well, it's a chance to have several photos! These sessions are usually quite casual and a lot of fun.


Why have an engagement session?

It's a great chance to work with your photographer, a chance to get to know you as a couple and for you to feel comfortable with the photographer and their style of shooting. The photos from the session can then be used on save-the-date cards, wedding invites or even included in wedding day decoration items.


When and where should we have the engagement session then?

Traditionally, it would take place shortly after your engagement, but in reality, you could have it any time before the wedding that you like. You can choose whatever location you like – an outdoor location that you feel comfortable in works best.


Any other recommendations?

You should wear something you feel comfortable in, and that you feel suits you. A quick change of clothes during the session can add variety too. Naturally, you also want to be prepared if the weather should take a turn for the worse.

Feel free to add your own creativity to the session. Ideas are welcome, and encouraged – a unique experience will always work well.


What's included?

A CD/DVD of all the photos from the session and an online photo gallery.
