WHY HAVE AN EN­GAGE­MENT SHOOT?

You and Your Wedding - - Stylish Shoots -

Given that you’ll end up with lots of lovely cou­ple shots from the day it­self, you may won­der why you need pre-w-day pho­tos. “For some cou­ples, this is an op­por­tu­nity to have pic­tures of them­selves in love without all the wed­ding day for­mal­i­ties,” says Obi. It is also an op­por­tu­nity for you to get com­fort­able in front of the cam­era and to get to know your pho­tographer – and vice versa. “I can study the cou­ple’s chem­istry and body lan­guage, and of course teach them a cou­ple of pos­ing tips, which saves time at the wed­ding,” he ex­plains. “Also, some­times there are lit­tle be­havioural traits your pho­tographer may notice dur­ing the en­gage­ment ses­sion. Maybe the groom blinks a lot, for ex­am­ple, so they’ll then know to take mul­ti­ple ex­po­sures of him dur­ing the wed­ding.” What’s more, there are all kinds of ways you can use the shots – to il­lus­trate your w-day web­site, say, or as your favours or guest book.
