We think its fair to say that not everyone is comfortable with having a camera pointed at them. We know some people actually fear being photographed and so they struggle to relax - especially when they see a professional photographer pointing a camera at them!! Having an engagement shoot is a great way to ease the worries of being photographed. Martin & Ellen, with their relaxed and friendly approach, work with you to help overcome any fears. Many a past client has said how much it helped them on their big day.
We love to catch up with you for a coffee or a cold drink and just have fun and enjoy being with you. We will check a few things and have good chat about all sorts of things, not just wedding related but will just enjoy getting to know you a bit more.
This fun and relaxed engagement shoot is very effective at getting more natural looking photos on your day and gives you the chance to take a relax, stroll, enjoy each others company and and get some images to be excited about in the build up to your big day. We find it best to meet at your wedding venue, a country park or a favourite place about 4-8 weeks before your wedding day. Attendance at your chosen place is dependant on distance and travel time.
Shoots last up to an hour and we suggest you wear something you feel comfortable in. We like bright and contrasting colours so if you want to wear bright red then feel free to wear it. You can of course always bring a change of clothing if you wanted to vary it. We suggest casual and informal. Nothing to smart though.
Within a day or 2 you will get your photos via an online gallery where you will be able to view them and share them on social media sites.
