Engagement shoots are a brilliant idea!

Updated: Jun 26, 2020

I’ve been asked a few times recently whether or not engagement (or pre-wedding) shoots are popular. The truth is, we live in a world where we like to know that we’re getting what we’re paying for. We also like to know that it's what we really want; and so, the answer is: yes! 

Engagement shoots are popular because more and more couples want to know they can fully trust their wedding photographer - well in advance of the big day. If you treat an engagement session like a trial (the way you would your hair and make-up), you have an amazing opportunity to see your photographer in action and get to see what their interactions and working methods are like, as well as getting to see how they photograph you, from how they pose (or don’t pose) you, right down to the final editing and delivery of your images.

Don't forget that you can book an engagement session with a photographer, even if you’ve already booked your wedding photography. In fact, if you love a photographer who is out with your wedding budget or unavailable on your date, an engagement shoot gives you the opportunity to work with them too.
