Engagements

Engagement sessions

Engagement sessions are held at a location of the clients choosing and gives us the opportunity to get to know each other a little better and for our clients to experience how we work before their big day.

Often these sessions help to ensure that clients become at ease with us, making for better photographs on their wedding day.  Lasting around an hour, we spend the time talking, having fun and capturing informal images as we go.  If you would prefer to spend some of the time having posed images created, that's absolutely fine.  As with all our sessions, it is up to you how we spend the time.  What is important is that we get to know each other a little better and that you become relaxed in our presence.  The more relaxed you are around us on the day, the more natural the images will appear.

Whilst we allow the couple to choose the location, it may not always be possible to accommodate their wishes.  For instance, some organisations do not allow professional photography without the payment of a fee.  We will, however, accommodate their choice whenever possible.  The reason we allow the couple to choose the location is two-fold.  Firstly it allows them to choose somewhere that is special to them; maybe where they met, or where the proposal took place.  Secondly, because the couple has chosen the location, they can view the images knowing that we haven't picked somewhere that we know well and have photographed hundreds of times.

As with the wedding day, after the session, we will pick the best images and digitally enhance them.  The images will then be available to download from a secure gallery on our website, as well as being presented on the USB with the images from the wedding.

There is also an option to purchase a signing frame which will utilise the couple's favourite image from the session.  The signing frame is displayed at the wedding reception for guests to add messages to, making a lovely memento of the day that can be displayed at the couple's home, providing a constant reminder of that special time in their lives.
