Couples & Engagement Shoots | Leeds and Yorkshire
Couples Shoots: What Are They?
If I've booked a wedding with a couple, I always offer an engagement shoot as a warm up beforehand - this means the couple and photographer can get to know each other a little better before your special day. Alternatively, if you're a family or unengaged couple, you may just want some photos for the mantlepiece, for mum & dad, or a keep-sake to put under the sun visor in the car.
Before your shoot we will have a video call to have a chat about how the day works and my style of shooting; this includes you picking an outdoor location of choice, or choosing your favourite from some of my recommendations - and if you've got kids and want to get them involve, bring them along! We'll all meet up, head out for a scenic walk in the country side, down the beach, or in the forest (wherever you guys have chosen), and snap some relaxed and easy-going pictures. My style is pretty candid, so don't worry I won't tell you how to position your head, or where to put your hands, my style involved prompts that gets you interacting with each other rather than anything too posey.
COUPLES SHOOTS: WHAT do we wear?
I always get asked the question "what should we wear?" for our shoots. I always leave this entirely up to you guys, the only recommendation I make is to dress suitable for your location - don't bring your heels if we are heading up some steep moors or into a muddy woods! Other than that, I would say smart casual, in your own style.
COUPLES SHOOTS: How much do you charge?
Within my Wedding Photography Pricing I offer engagement shoots in some of my packages. However if you are interested in a stand-alone couples & family shoot, my rates are just £300 for up to 2 hours coverage for locations within Yorkshire, discounted rates available if booked with your wedding. Once I'm back home and have edited your images, you'll receive a link to your personal Password Protected Online Gallery to download your images.
