Pre-wedding Engagement Photos Gallery
Pre-wedding engagement photos, also sometimes referred to as an ‘e-shoot’ or engagement shoot, are some of my favourite photo shoots. Most couples haven’t ever had their photo taken during a professional photo shoot, and it can be a little bit daunting to the uninitiated.
Rather than wait for your wedding day photo shoot, a pre-wedding photo shoot means we meet for an hour or two for a relaxed, informal photo shoot as a warm-up for the main event. As I’m a photographer in Edinburgh, I usually meet my couples in or around the Edinburgh area. I’ve covered pre-wedding photo shoots at almost any location you can imagine. Leafy parks and gardens, castles, woodland trails, beaches. We’re very lucky in the Edinburgh area to have such a wide and varied range of locations and backdrops right on our doorstep!
On your wedding day, I would usually get about 30 – 60 minutes to shoot the newly-wed photos. During our pre-wedding shoot, we won’t have a wedding breakfast deadline to keep an eye on, so we can shoot the pre-wedding photos at a relaxed pace and find out what kind of poses work for you. Importantly, we’ll find out what doesn’t work for you! On your wedding day, this means that we’ll spend our limited time together shooting photos that we know will look fantastic.
The pre-wedding photo shoot is also a great opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better. I guarantee you’ll come away from the photo shoot feeling totally relaxed about the photo side of your wedding day. As a bonus, you’ll receive all of your pre-wedding photo shoot engagement photos from our shoot on the same disk as your wedding photos. An excellent way to look back on the days leading up to the best day of your life!
I hope you enjoy my gallery of pre-wedding engagement photos, showing you a selection of my favourite photos created in and around Edinburgh.
