Verity & John, Engagement Shoot, near Banada, Co.Sligo
My first wedding of 2019 will be with these guys, Verity & John! It’ll be full steam ahead from March until November then! And as much as I do love the snow, and the last shoot was amazing, at this stage, I’d be all for the mid-teens temperature that we’re getting for the rest of February & into March (unlike last March!!).
For this shoot we kept it simple & went somewhere nearby where the couple live, and turns out had this amazing forest area with trees that look very similar to quaking aspens from the USA!
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!
