An engagement shoot or a pre wedding shoot as it is sometimes known is a pre-wedding photography shoot that allows the happy couple freedom to express their love and capture it in timeless photos. For a couple due to get married in the not so distant future it is the perfect moment to get comfortable in front of the camera. It is also a great way to show exactly who you are in pictures. As a London Engagement Photographer I will provide you with a collection of stunning happy memories as a result of our time together. What is even better is it acts as a dress rehearsal between the 3 of us ready for your big day.


I like to arrange your engagement session early at least 3 months before your wedding. This will give you plenty of time to enjoy your photographs but also gives you an opportunity to prepare for the big day. We can tweak ideas together to capture the perfect moments of each special occasion during your big day.


As a Surrey wedding photographer, I often shoot engagement photography and pre wedding shoots in London or in Windsor Great Park. Most of my clients live and work in and around London and often want images that show the city they all love. Engagement Photography or pre wedding shoots are a great way to get some amazing photos and show what your relationship is all about. 



If you’re looking for that one reason to have an engagement shoot this is it! FUN TIMES Getting engaged completely changes your life. You will be swept along with the wedding preparations to make sure everything is perfect for your big day. Precious moments together should be top of your to do list. You are getting married because you are in love and a London engagement photography session is the perfect occasion to express the love you share . 


An engagement shoot should be fun as already mentioned so take the opportunity to express your creative side. As i often ask clients choose a location that has special meaning and significance to the both of you. This is your opportunity to take some stunning images. Therefore if you both share a love, interest or hobby think about integrate it into your pre wedding shoot theme. As an engagement photographer I will work with you to capture the spirit of the occasion creating fabulous images that symbolize you as a couple whatever the location and however unusual or dramatic the theme.


If your anything like me, I know not everyone is super confident in front of a camera. As an experienced Surrey wedding photographer I will however be able to put you at ease so that you are comfortable being your self, and that is the key thing, being yourself. You’ll be able to appreciate your elegance and grace showing your unique personality so that you identify exactly the person you want to show off on your special wedding day. The pre wedding shoot is the perfect dress rehearsal and also helps determine how you want to pose and look on your big day.

Getting comfortable in front of the camera before the wedding day is the best way to overcome camera nerves. An engagement shoot gives you the chance to practice for your special wedding day but in the privacy of the two of you.


Building rapport with your wedding photographer is highly recommended to ensure you are happy and satisfied with your pre wedding shoot and wedding photographs. Seeing photographs of yourselves before the wedding, means that you will understand how the camera captures the two of you. This in turn will build trust and confidence between us and establish a rapport so that you will not feel like a stranger is photographing you on your big day. We will explore Reportage, traditional and contemporary wedding photography styles.  


After shooting so many brides over the years, usually they have very clear ideas of how they want their wedding photographs to look. By having an engagement shoot it is you get a real indication of what is and isn’t possible. An engagement shoot or pre wedding shoot is a rehearsal  for the main event and gives you time to define your style. As your wedding photographer I will work with you to ensure your individual personalities take centre stage not only on your engagement shoot but also your wedding day.
