Engagement sessions are basically a portrait session with you and your partner. Whether you have booked me for your wedding or you just want some cool photos of the both of you together, Being engaged is such an exciting time in your lives and its a great way to commemorate it by having professional photos together, A lot of couple use the sessions as photos for their save the date cards.
I think that it is a great way to get comfortable with me and my camera before your wedding day, I like to keep engagement sessions fun and relaxed by walking around a location talking about your wedding plans and getting to know you as a couple.

What to expect during the session?
We will meet at your chosen location, from there I will take you on a walk and stop and shoot along the way. Rather than ‘Posey’ poses I want you to be as natural as possible, I do this by getting you to interact as a couple so that you are focused on enjoying the session together rather than worrying about how to sit or stand. I may get you just simply holding hands walking and talking or standing close and holding each other.
How do we pick a location?
Choosing a location is a hard one, I have a list of locations around Derbyshire where I know we will get great shots! But it's also a good idea to consider where is important to you as a couple, choosing a meaningful location will make it that bit more special.
What should we wear?
The simple answer is whatever you want! If your glamorous, wear your sparkliest outfit, if you're always in your wellies, wear them! You want to be yourself, but do make sure it is suitable for your chosen location, I want you to feel as confident as possible. You don’t need to do the whole matching white t-shirt/blue jeans combo with your partner, simply try some subtle co-ordination, try colours which compliment each other. I can only give tips on what to wear to get the most out of your session but ultimately you are in control.
Can we bring the kids?
Sure! If you have kids or dogs feel free to include them in your session, but I advise to possibly bring someone else with you who can help out especially if the dogs ( and kids ) are not well trained. This is the time for your two as a couple and it will be hard to relax with kids running around trying to keep your eye on them.
What if it rains?
I always keep my eye on the weather leading up to location shoots, in case of lots of rain or snow I will reschedule with you to choose a more suitable day to shoot. Personally I will go ahead and shoot in any weather providing its safe to do so but I will always keep you updated on the situation and you ultimately make the decision to reschedule or go ahead and brave the rain!
