The Engagement Photo Shoot

sandra johnson boutique photographyIn the countdown to your wedding day, you’ll have all sorts of practice runs – from the ceremony rehearsal to dress fittings, hair and makeup trials, and more. But what about your photos? You only get one chance to get them right… or do you?

In fact, a pre-wedding/ engagement photo shoot is the perfect way to ‘test drive’ your photographer – an excellent opportunity to experience working with them, BEFORE your wedding day. It’s easy to flick through the albums and decide you like the images they capture, but how do you find out about how they work to set up those images?

I’ve met photographers who take stunning photos, but are unpleasantly bossy, or even rude, on the day, so I know that it makes sense to have a test run before hand. Find out how you feel about being on the receiving end of their photographic style – how your chosen photographer sets up their shots, how they give direction to you, their models.

You’ll either have a fantastic time, and get some great photos as a bonus, or you’ll find out that your chosen photographer is not a good fit, with plenty of time to make a change – an excellent peace of mind exercise.

An engagement photo shoot not only gives you confidence in the skill and style of your photographer, you will also come away with some fantastic photos of the two of you in your ‘real life’: Happy, and so much in love, photos you’ll be proud to have on display, and are perfect for adding to your invitations, wedding website, and thankyou cards, etc.

This recommendation goes double if you’re using a family friend for your wedding photos – it’s easier to fine-tune the process beforehand than to live with regrets afterwards!

No matter who you have booked for your wedding photos, The Wedding Whisperer and Sandra Johnson Boutique Photography would like to offer you the chance to get some posing practice, and come away with a disc of photos ready to print, PLUS a gorgeous coffee table style photo book [which can be designed used as a custom guest book at your wedding]
