What is a love shoot? It can be a fun photoshoot for the two of you just because you want to have some fun and gorgeous images to remember it by. It can be a photoshoot for your Save the Dates. It could be an Engagement shoot to announce you’ve just gotten engaged or just celebrate it! Or it could be a pre-wedding photoshoot where we can get to know each other better. It’s simply a photoshoot to celebrate the love you feel for each other and you can use the images for many things!
Love photoshoots are a fantastic way to get to know me and get used to being in front of the camera. If you don’t like your photo taken then it’s a great way to relax in front of one, just because working with a professional is nothing like being in front of a camera normally. You’ll soon forget a camera is even pointed at you and if you don’t like yourself in photos, I guarantee you’ll come out of the photoshoot with a whole new view.
For me, the best part of this photoshoot is getting to know my couples and that they get to know me better so it’s not just a complete stranger showing up on their day. It’s because of the immense benefit and joy I take in getting to know my couples that I offer a complimentary photoshoot to all the couples who book me for their wedding photography.
What can you get from the photoshoot?
Well apart from benefiting from the experience, you’ll have some lovely photographs of yourselves.
You get to have fun.
Have you sent out your save the dates yet? If not, you can use these photos or even add props like sparklers, signs and many more options to make your Save the dates.
Have you thought about a photo timeline? You can make a timeline of your relationship and use the engagement photoshoot in it (even a slideshow) or incorporate them in your table display or even your table seating chart.
What can you do for the photoshoot?
Anything! You can have a relaxed stroll in an interesting place or somewhere special to you, we could jump on a plane and do a day trip somewhere in Europe, we could paint fight… Anything that makes the shoot YOU.
Stuck for ideas?
We can talk about it and is usually ends up being fun discussing all the possibilities! From what to wear, where to go or what the theme is. I have been so excited by ideas before, that I’ve even spent numerous hours making props let alone scouting locations for the perfect place!
There are many options for what you can do and I’m always happy to discuss ideas, what you can use the images for, props, locations, outfits and pretty much anything in between. All of these said, I still strongly believe that the time spent together taking these images is invaluable because of getting to know each other, breaking the ice and making you feel more comfortable and confident with me and the work I deliver.
