I offer a free engagement shoot with each and every one of my wedding bookings.
Because it not only gives the couple the opportunity to warm to having their photo taken (which helps ease their nerves for the big day) but it also allows me to have a good chat and get to know them and find out the best way to work with them.
Often couples have an idea for where they’d like their engagement photos, particularly if there is somewhere meaningful to their relationship, such as where they first met, the spot where the question was popped, or somewhere they regularly visit together.
However sometimes there is no specific place that springs to mind for them and in that instance I enjoy having the freedom to choose a location myself, which is what happened with Emily and Ross.
I often visit country estates and woodlands, so chose a complete contrast to the norm having spotted some very cool graphic scenes across central Bristol.
Here’s what to expect from an urban engagement shoot…
