Free Engagement Photoshoot

This is a month often associated with thanksgiving and with giving back. So I’m #payingitforward by offering a free engagement shoot to one couple getting married in the UK.

I hope that you’ll have a location in mind that is special to you, where you feel at home and relaxed. I’ll guide you into some flattering poses which look editorial, fun and natural, which will make for unique images.

If you’re not sure where you’d like the photos to be taken, don’t worry – I’ll come up with a few suggestions for you.

We’ll pick a date/time that works for everyone and if the weather turns against us you can re-book the session (the full terms and conditions are below).

The photos will be available to you via a private online gallery where you’ll be able to easily download and share them with your family and friends. You might want to use them as wedding invitations, save the date cards or anything else that takes your fancy.

This is a chance for you to get comfortable in front of the camera ahead of your wedding day, which is useful because then you’ll know what to expect.

Some brides-to-be take this opportunity to have a trial run of their hair and make-up and see how it photographs, and I encourage you to invest in hair/make-up professionals because they have experience in creating the right look for you that will photograph beautifully.

the Ballet News Pinterest board for what to wear on an engagement session

I know that deciding what to wear for your engagement session can be a vexing question, and so I’ve put together a pinterest board which is updated most days with new ideas and inspiration.

There aren’t any rules : wear what you love and feel good in ! If you prefer a casual look, and that’s what you normally wear, then go with that.

On the other hand, if you’ve got a lovely dress or something sparkly in your wardrobe that is just waiting for an occasion like this – that’s fine too.

Generally speaking, a pop of colour is good for photography, even if it’s something in your hair, or a flower, or an incredible pair of shoes.

If you’d like to use props in your photos that’s all good – just please let me know what to expect beforehand!

There are just a few terms and conditions so that everything is clear – please read them to make sure you qualify.

There’s a short form at the end of this feature to get in touch and I look forward to hearing your exciting plans! Let’s put them into action……
