It's always such an honour when couples ask me to document their love stories (mainly because these are the pics they'll use to tell their grandkids of how hot grandma + grandpa used to be). I'm always down for an adventure in the woods, the mountains, or even in your home. 

As a storyteller, I believe that getting to know each other will create the most authentic photos. So if you'd like to chat/chill/share a cheeseboard, HIT ME UP! I'm so proud to say that my clients are my friends and THAT is what I love my job sooooo much.

Then even more of a reason to shoot an engagement session together!

Engagement sessions are perfect for you to practice being in front of the camera before your big day. It helps to relieve any nerves you'll have on your actual wedding day because you'll be used to the paparazzi (trust me, there'll be quite a few). We can also address any fears or insecurities you have of being photographed, and just have fun taking photos without the time pressure of hurrying off to cut the cake or make your speech. I'll get to know your preferences and what makes you guys giddy so that when your wedding day comes, we can bypass any awkwardness.

PLUSSS we can also grab coffee (or IKEA meatballs) afterwards to hang out and chat about all things wedding and non-wedding, so we'll be best buds come your big day.

As to the practical benefits of having an engagement session - you can use the photos for save the dates, engagement party thank you cards, wedding invitations, on your wedding website, for social media announcements, printed to begin decorating your new home together, to decorate your wedding venue, for gifts for your parents in law. 

Most importantly, you get to remember the JOY of this season which is only so short and goes by so quickly.

I LOVE shooting engagement sessions so if you're booking your wedding with me, YAYYYYY! You get £100 OFF Package I (a 2 hour session at 2 locations with 90+ images)!!!

STOP right there and banish those thoughts. You guys are BEAUTIFUL and I'm here to give you living proof of it.

 

A lot of the times, my couples tell me that they're nervous about their photoshoot (how to get a symmetrical smile, where to put their hands etc. etc.) but they all end up slaying it! My sessions are STRICTLY FUN and there's none of that stiff pose-y stuff.

 

I like to give prompts and then leave space for my couples to CONNECT, like actual humans should. Having your photos taken doesn't mean you should downplay your love for each other or 'fake' a moment for the gram. You won't be standing there awkwardly and YOU WILL have the freedom to shuffle around in a way that makes you feel comfortable, interact with each other like you normally do, and just be fully present.

Enjoy the ride, trust me on this.
