Is the engagement session included in our wedding package?
The engagement shoot is an important element in preparing for your wedding, it enables us to get to know each other, find out your likes and dislikes and for you to see how I work. For some people (usually the Grooms), being photographed is something you don’t really enjoy but know you must do, so the engagement shoot is a great way to get a little extra confidence in front of the camera prior to the big day itself. My natural, down to earth manner will soon help you to relax and have some fun.
Many couples use a selection of their favourite images to create a unique guest signing book, or you might chose a singe image to mount as a guest signing board or as a piece of wall art for your home.
What should I wear to the engagement Session?
We will have specific recommendations depending on the location you choose. However, we want you to wear clothing that showcases your personality. It’s all about styling and planning. The more time you invest in choosing a wardrobe for your photo shoot, the happier you will be with the results. Leaving the details to the last minute creates stress and takes the fun out of the day. Don’t hesitate to consult with us on options for colors and accessories.
Dress: As a general rule, wear solid colours, as stripes and patterns draw attention away from your face. Avoid wearing turtlenecks and large loose clothing, as these often make the neck seem nonexistent and the body seem wider than it is. Shorts have a tendency to make legs appear shorter than they are.
Colors: Solid monochromatic colours are easiest to coordinate but primary or complementary colours also look great and bring energy to the photograph. Darker colours will cause the subject(s) to appear thinner while lighter colours will cause the subject(s) to appear larger. Dark pants or jeans with dark shoes give texture and visually anchor a portrait. When choosing colour schemes, consider not only what looks best on you, but also what colours will look best in wall portraits and complement your home’s decor.
