What Is An Engagement Photo Shoot?
An engagement photoshoot takes place between the time you and your fiancé get engaged and your wedding day. A professional photographer will capture a collection of photos of you together in a casual setting. It's a great way to commemorate this exciting time in your life.
Why Book An Engagement Photo Shoot?
1. It's a way to get to know your wedding photographer
By doing an engagement photo session with the photographer who will be capturing your wedding, it's a perfect opportunity to get to know each other. You will be able to get to know their style and become more comfortable with each other. Once you have seen your engagement photos, you will be able to communicate with your photographer if you'd like them to do something different on your wedding day.
2. You can get comfortable in front of the camera
If you've never done a professional photoshoot before, being in front of the camera can feel very awkward. An engagement photoshoot gives you time to become more comfortable with the camera. Your photographer will be able to guide you on posing naturally and help put you at ease.
3. No distractions
The great thing about an engagement photoshoot is that it's just you and your partner (and your photographer!) While on your wedding day, you will have plenty of other things on your mind, at your engagement shoot, you can focus completely on capturing beautiful photos.
Luckily, we have no shortage of incredible locations here on the Gold Coast for your engagement session. Your photographer will be able to recommend a location for you. But you're welcome to pick your own spot if you have somewhere in mind.
Some of our favourite locations in the Gold Coast are The Spit, Gold Coast Botanic Gardens, Mount Tamborine and Pizzey Park in Miami. But there are many other options, whether you'd like to do a sunset shoot at the beach, go to your favourite café, or get your photos amongst the trees in a forest.
What To Wear?
The clothing you wear for your pre-wedding photoshoot should be a reflection of your own style and personality. If you're really unsure what to wear, you can speak to your photographer before your photoshoot and they will be able to provide some suggestions. You can also use websites like Pinterest and Instagram to get inspiration from other engagement photoshoots.
