Sophie & Jude, Engagement Shoot, Creevelea Abbey, Co.Leitrim
Finally the weather is warming up a little & the sun decided to shine on Sophie & Jude as they got their engagement shoot done in Creevelea Abbey. An old abbey was the choice of location for the couple, and while Sligo Abbey is beautiful, it requires permission to shoot inside, and to be honest, Creevelea is every bit as nice, and there’s usually nobody around either! And with Sophie & Jude getting married this coming weekend, fingers crossed we’ll have the sun shine on them again!
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!
