What is an engagement session?
An engagement session is typically an extra 1 hour photo session for the Bride and Groom to enjoy before their wedding day. At first and for many years, engagement sessions were created as a means to capture a photo for your announcement of the engagement. But nowadays, well, it's a chance to have several photos! These sessions are usually quite casual, and always a lot of fun!
Why should we have an engagement session?
An engagement session is a fantastic chance to work with your photographer. It's perfect for the photographer as a way to get to know you as a couple, and also for you to feel comfortable with the photographer and their style of shooting. Photos from the session can then be used on save-the-date cards, wedding invites, or even included in wedding day decoration items if you wish.

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.
You should wear something you feel comfortable in, and that you feel suits you. A quick change of clothes during the session may also work well, and will add variety. 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 always welcome and encouraged - a unique experience is practically guaranteed to look amazing and be fun.
What is included?
As with your wedding day, all photos will be put in to an online photo gallery and I will provide you with a link and password. You can then pass this on to your friends and family if you wish.
Can I get these photos printed?
Absolutely. There is the option to purchase photos on my website when you view the them, but at any point, you can also get in contact with me with an order and I will be able to help you. Contact me here.
