As I was waiting this morning for our Adobe Lightroom photo editing software to update (needing to do updates seems to be a regular occurrence in the life of a photographer), I was scrolling through some recent engagement photo shoots we have done. And I was struck by how different they all were!
From an outdoor shoot in a country park, to a wild paint bomb fight in front of graffiti, or an urban shoot in central Birmingham – the situations couldn’t have been any different. And all that within the span of a month and a half!
The other thing that occurred to me though was that none of the photos seemed staged or arranged or out of character. They just seem to fit.
Interestingly, I don’t think that happens by accident. People often ask us – Is there anything you need us to wear? – a question we then answer with – Whatever you’re comfortable in! We believe people look best when their relaxed, happy, and themselves.
This all made me realise why I love engagement shoots so much – their personality! It brings out the personality of the couple, and their quirks and strengths so well.
We include engagement shoots in all of our wedding packages, at no additional charge. Feel free to contact us here if you’d be interested in having us photograph your wedding.
