Engagement photo shoot with Richard and Laura
Last weekend we had a great engagement photo shoot with Richard and Laura. The young couple are getting married later this Summer at Sopley Mill. As part of our full day wedding package we include a free engagement shoot which gives us a chance to work with and get to know the couple before their wedding so that when it comes to their big day they are as comfortable as possible in front of the camera. We went to Coy Pond for the photo shoot and the weather was warm and sunny with a bright blue sky.
The engagement photo shoot is as much a learning experience for couples as it is about getting nice photos. We practised poses with the couple and talked about Laura’s wedding dress and how she could stand to best enhance the dress in the photos. We rehearsed putting the rings on so as to enable us to get a classic shot of that once in a lifetime moment. We also discussed walking down the aisle and other key moments. In reality, with all the emotion of the day, much of what we practised will go right out the window, however if the couple can remember a few moments, it will enable us to get them some lovely photos.
Here are some of the photos from the shoot:
