No matter if you like having your photo taken or not, an engagement shoot (or E-shoot as they are know in the biz) is something you will look back on and be thankful for having. Don’t believe us? Read on to find out why!

1. It’s the perfect time to get some sweet photographs of you and your fiancé during this exciting time. One mistake many couples make during their period of being engaged is forgetting to enjoy that special time. With wedding plans in full swing, money needing to be saved actually stepping back and being conscious of enjoying the time is easily forgotten.

2. You’ll have a chance to forget you’re planning the biggest day of your life! Having an e-shoot will encourage you to jump back into the moment and be present in what’s going on, having a lovely person (photographer) there to capture your pre-wedding glow is just the icing on the cake!

3. The result, a glorious set of images are pretty useful! From framing your favourite to display on your wedding day to using it on your Save The Dates, in place of reception table names and your guest book, there are so many ways to use your engagement shoot images at your wedding.

4. They are good practice for your wedding day. If you’d rather be behind the camera your engagement shoot is the ideal time to have a practice for the big day without the pressure, big dress and lots of guests watching!

5. You will get to know your photographer and they will get to know you. Possibly the main reason to have an engagement shoot is so that you get to connect and understand your photographer more. The same goes for your photographer too. You will get the best results from your photographer when they know you and you trust them.
