In our initial consultation I normally discuss with the bride and groom the option of adding to the photography package, a engagement shoot. The purpose of a engagement shoot is for the couple to feel comfortable in front of the camera. They can see how the photographer works, gives directions and the images his trying to capture. It's about building trust between the photographer and the couple.


In most cases the couple start out nervous as they don't know what to expect. By the end of the shoot there's plenty of laughter, poses and happy beautiful natural shots. And that's exactly what I aim for. The benefit of this exercise is for me is to get to know the couple. By the end of the shoot I would have learned the type of couple they are and what they feel comfortable doing.


Selecting a location is also very important to get the best out of the couple. Normally I like to do a shoot where the couple has spent time together previously and have very happy fond memories of a certain place. Could be a location where they first met, the place where he propose, and any locations which will bring plenty of emotions. I do recommend to any couple to think about engagement photos when choosing the package. If you’re doing a Sydney wedding or a gold coast wedding make sure you add the engagements shoot because their allot fun and a trust building exercise which you won't regret doing.
