Áine & Darren, Engagement Shoot, Sligo
February is turning out to be what typical February’s are supposed to be like, cold, wet with a hint of snow! Somehow last Sunday when I had two engagement shoots scheduled, we managed to get both done, with snow & ice on the ground for the first shoot and for Aine & Darren’s we almost escaped the hail showers bar the last few minutes, which as you can see from the picture above & few below helped make the last few pictures pretty awesome! Fingers crossed for March when these guys get married it’ll have warmed up just a little!
The engagement shoot I do with couples is complimentary with all wedding packages, and it really is the best way to get superb wedding images, as it gets you used to being in front of the camera!
An engagement shoot for couples usually lasts for around one hour. Choice of location is entirely up to you—anywhere within reason and sometimes it’s great to use two or three locations to get a variety of images!
What can I do with the images? Some previous clients have done the following:
- Use the images on wedding invitations if done early enough.
- Have a large image mounted for signing by guests at the wedding reception.
- Have a guestbook made up for signing at the wedding reception.
- Have images framed for hanging around your home.
But it’s really up to you what you use the images for! The most important thing is that it gets you used to the camera!
