Congratulations you’re now engaged and are planning an awesome wedding. Before anything, I would highly recommend that we have an engagement shoot for a number of reasons. The engagement shoot really is an important part of my job. I consider it a “Get to Know You” session because I get to spend time with you both and capture great images as well. We leave not only having made some beautiful images but also knowing that we have become friends. This creates a higher level of comfort during the wedding day, as I am now a familiar and friendly face along for the ride on your wedding day. This type of session can be as relaxed or as formal as you wish. I prefer to take both approaches by going to select natural locations e.g. gorgeous beaches, magical forests, dramatic mountain, parks, then essentially getting glamour shots of you guys. I recommend you wear clothing that is fun, reflects your personal style and suits the surroundings. Most of all I want to have fun!
“Hi Luke, We seriously cannot thank you enough for making yesterday absolutely amazing. Our only regret is we didn’t do an engagement photo shoot with you, but I’m sure we can do a newly weds shoot instead at some stage. John and I are people that are definitely camera shy, you made everything so easy and put us completely at ease. We are so excited to see the photos! Thanks again, Lucy and John”
