We LOVE engagement shoots! We’ve compiled all of our favourites here, on our blog. Our blog posts includes words from couples themselves about their upcoming weddings to help give you a bit of wedding inspiration.
Not sure what they even are? Here our some frequently asked questions.
What are engagement shoots for?
Engagement shoots have nothing much to do with the actual proposal. They’re just something fun you can do in the lead up to your wedding day and help ease any photo nerves you might have and (obviously) get some really awesome photos.
How long do engagement shoots last?
This completely depends on your photographer but for us they last around an hour.
When should we have our engagement shoot?
If you’re planning on using the photos for save the dates or any wedding stationary then book your shoot around 10 months in advance or more.
In terms of season, think about the weather in the UK and what type of weather you want in the photos, what’s significant to you as a couple and what you’re comfortable with. If you hate the heat, avoid Summer. If you hate the cold, avoid winter. It sounds obvious but you’d be surprised at the amount of people who tell themselves they’ll brave it for the photos.
Where should we have our engagement shoot?
You could pick a location that’s personal and significant or you could pick a location purely because it looks nice. We have our own locations we like to go to and can recommend but if you had your first date at a restaurant, there’s no reason why we can’t go there. Just make sure you consider how many people will be around and if you’re comfortable with potentially having an audience.
We hope you enjoy our engagement shoot blogs!
