Engagement Locations

Choosing a Location for your Engagement Shoot (Bonus)

Our last engagement post covered what couples usually do for their engagement shoot. But the most popular question I get asked is “Where should we have our engagement shoot?”

Engagement Advice

Having an Engagement Shoot? Work it!

We’ve always included an engagement shoot in our wedding package for a few reasons. Firstly we have large, intimidating cameras – sorry but we need them. Secondly, most people aren’t used to being followed around by a photographer. Chandler smiles are often an issue!
