WHY BOOK A PRE WEDDING ‘ENGAGEMENT’ PHOTO SHOOT?
A pre wedding photo shoot is a great way to celebrate this unique phase of life. There’s no better excuse to put aside the stressful parts of planning a wedding and just have some fun together. Although I don’t include engagement sessions as standard in my wedding collections, most couples do choose to add a pre wedding photo shoot to their package and use the images on items such as wedding stationary, invitations and websites.
A pre wedding photo shoot is an ideal time for us to work through some of the poses we may use on your wedding day, ensuring you know what to expect and helping you to relax on the day itself! It will also provide you an opportunity to highlight any concerns you may have and allow me to offer you some tips on making sure you look great!
WHERE WILL MY PRE WEDDING PHOTO SHOOT TAKE PLACE?
In order to capture you both in the most natural way possible I would usually schedule your engagement shoot to take place outdoors. There’s some great locations around Mansfield & Nottingham to suit whatever style of images you’d like, from a rustic ‘outdoorsy’ feel to an urban city look. Typically, couples choose a location special to them, for example, where they first met, have spent time together, or proposed. However, I’m happy to suggest some locations and discuss options if you would prefer.
WHEN WILL MY PRE WEDDING PHOTO SHOOT TAKE PLACE?
I generally aim to photograph pre wedding photo shoots around 6 months before your wedding date. This is usually a little while after the initial booking and it’s nice for me to be able to keep up to date with your plans, yet, is still far enough away from your wedding date that you can use the images on stationary, signing boards etc should you wish. However, I’m happy to schedule your pre wedding shoot to suit you, so if you would prefer it at the time of booking or just before your wedding that’s no problem either!
HOW MUCH DOES A PRE WEDDING PHOTO SHOOT COST?
Your pre-wedding photo shoot is included free of charge when you book any of my all day wedding collections. You can add a pre wedding photo shoot onto any of my part-day wedding collections for just £150 inclusive of all the finished, edited high resolution images via download and a 20″ framed print. If you haven’t booked me as your wedding photographer and you would like to book your engagement session ‘standalone’ then the fee is £250.
