Alternative Engagement Shoot Derby
Olivia and Simon’s Alternative Engagement Shoot.
Olivia & Simon
“I don’t like being photographed.” I hear these words often. But I get it. I hate being photographed too. Most people are apprehensive about being photographed. They feel awkward. Suddenly they forget how to stand, how to relax. They pull silly faces, usually out nervousness. They worry they’ll have a frozen smile or will look like a startled rabbit caught in headlights. These fears are perfectly normal. Alternative engagement shoots are great for people who really really don’t like being photographed as I’ll be photographing you pretty much informally like I will on your wedding day. I won’t be asking you to stand this way or that I’ll just be photographing you being you.
So is an engagement shoot really necessary? I think so and I highly recommend one. It’s important for several reasons. It allows you, as a couple, to get comfortable in front of the camera with me taking your pictures, and helps the three of us figure out how you work best together before the main event. On your wedding day we will have very little time together, no time to learn, it’s your one and only time to get it right. Couples who have these shoots know what to expect on their wedding day from me and from themselves. They feel like a mate rather than a stranger is taking their pictures. The awkwardness has gone and their wedding portraits look and feel natural. Afterwards without fail they say it was worth it, and fun. To book just give me a ring on 07850 651 851 🙂
