Free Engagement Photo Shoot
Thank You !!
Thanks for completing the short questionnaire and here's some more details about the Free Engagement Shoot
Why are you giving this away for Free ??
There must be a catch!
Nope - no catch!
I love working with couples who value photographs of their wedding and their engagement. Who understand that getting great photos takes some time and effort and who are willing to work with me to create images that they'll treasure forever.
These Engagement Photo Sessions are a great way for me to practice and develop new techniques and ideas that I can later use at weddings.
And this really is the best way for you to find your
potential wedding photographer.
Meet me, work with me and see the images I'll produce for you.
Decide would you want me around you all day on your wedding day.
Would I get on with your guests and would you fall in love with my pictures afterwards.
So here's a risk free, No obligation way that works for both of us.
The photo shoot can be anywhere that you'd like within 30 miles of Bury St Edmunds. Maybe where the proposal happened, maybe a local place you both love, possibly a nigh-time city shoot,maybe at your wedding venue.
It's up to you.
Saturdays are often booked with a wedding so Sundays or evenings are probably best - I can also offer midweek daytime sessions.
Please give some thought to the above and I look forward to capturing some beautiful images you'll treasure forever.
What to wear? Again it's up to you - what do you want to look like in these photos? Some couples want to look really smart, hair and make-up, new suit etc. Some want casual romantic shots - whatever you want is what you'll get!
WHAT YOU GET
Well obviously the photo shoot itself which is a great way to experience what you're in for on your wedding day! Many people (especially men!) feel apprehensive about having their photo taken - this will put to rest any fears and doubts you may have.
I'll upload around 30 images to an online gallery and send you a link to view. There you can view, share and download full resolution images to use as you please.
A Quick Explanation of My Style and
Your Photo Session
Weddings for me comprise two very different styles of photography.
Firstly there's everything that happens as part of your wedding - the ceremony, first kiss, walking up the aisle, confetti, speeches.... I photograph all these candidly in a documentary manner and you'll hardly know I'm there. These shots are aimed at capturing the moment, the emotions, that look you give your new husband, and so on. These photos tell the story of your wedding day.
Secondly, I'll ask you for a few minutes of your time on two or three occasions throughout the day for some "staged" photos. This is what the Engagement Shoot is like except that on your wedding day everything is set-up before I ask you for your time - on the engagement shoot I obviously can't do that so I keep the set-up (lights, reflectors etc) much more simple than on your wedding day.
These photos are the glamour photos, the ones that will always be you at your very best. But DON'T WORRY - there's NO POSING!
Instead I'll set the scene, maybe something like "stand here and look at each other, talk, look around, cuddle, anything that feels good"
I'll constantly take photos - the result is completely natural looking photos of you both that have perfect lighting, deliberately selected background, perfect crop and so on.
Just great photos.
Do bear in mind however that your wedding photos will look totally different
with you in your wedding dress and him in a great suit!
I'll process and edit around 30 images and create the online gallery.
Whilst I'm with you at the photo shoot I'll take the opportunity to give you a wedding photography brochure.
I am passionate about creating wonderful memories of your wedding for you - that begins with your engagement photos so see you soon....
All the best
