So you’re thinking about having an engagement photo session, here are three things to consider:


Where shall we have our session?

  • Somewhere that’s special to you both. Perhaps where you had your first date or where he proposed. Or maybe somewhere that you like to go together.
  • It might be that you want to be photographed doing something that you both love. Rowing is a big part of Rhys’ life so it was an obvious choice for their session.
  • It might be that you just fancy the woods, a field, the beach or a more urban setting.


What should we wear?

  • The most important thing is that you should be comfortable & look like yourselves! Wearing clothes that you like will make you feel more confident and this shows in a photo.
  • Layers are great because you can add & subtract items for a different look. Always bring a coat or jumper to keep warm in-between shots.
  • Textures are a winner: think fluffy jumper or velvet jacket.
  • Accessories can really help make a picture; whether it’s some jewellery or funky shoes.
  • Solid colours work well, as does some pattern. However it is best to avoid bold motifs, because this will distract from your faces. Co-ordinating colours work really well, although avoid wearing the same thing.
  • Finally dress like you’re both going to the same place – whether it be the beach or out for dinner…


What should we expect?

  • A fun relaxed time together. We should be about an hour.
  • Some direction from me.
  • Just be yourselves.
  • Some great photos. They will be available two weeks after the session on a password protected online gallery. You will also receive your very own mobile app for use on your smartphones and tablets.
