I always sit down with a couple before the wedding over a cup of coffee so we can plan a detailed itinerary of the day with lots of flexibility built in to allow for weather changes. This is a perfect time to arrange an engagement shoot at the same time so that we can get to know each other even more and work out what makes the couple click in front of the camera. It also means, with enough pre-planning, we can organise a beautiful Signature Board for the couple to display at their wedding so the guests can sign around it - a really different alternative to a guest book and one that works as a piece of wall art for years to come.
I like to think of children and grandchildren enjoying looking through engagement photographs of the time their parent/grandparents were getting ready to get married. What a lovely recording of your love affair together!
