Its only been two months since we last blogged but feels like forever ago! We’ve been enjoying our little Winter pause on weddings however first wedding back for the season is this Saturday and we’re pumped. Though the wedding side of things has been quiet, we have been busy shooting lots of beautiful families and couples. This particular shoot was a lovely Saturday afternoon spent with Alyssa and Matthew at Mt Ettalong who will be getting married in October. It was the perfect Saturday afternoon at Mt Ettalong. That Winter golden glow is just magic at Mt Ettalong. We made very good use of golden hour up at the lookout at Mt Ettalong. Alyssa and Matthew decided to have a little glass of sparkling, chocolate and strawberries overlooking the stunning Central Coast at Mt Ettalong. And then the rest of the afternoon was spent enjoying that glorious light.
If you’re deciding whether or not you should have an engagement shoot, our answer is always yes! There are so many reasons why an engagement shoot is a great idea. Firstly, it is a great way to get comfy in front of the camera. Most people aren’t used to being followed and directed all day with a large lens all day. Having an engagement shoot will calm those nerves and allow you to feel what it’s like to be in front of the camera. Secondly, it’s a great way to get to your know your photography team. Although all our shooters are super friendly and all our couples we meet on the day and have a blast, sometimes it is nice to familiarise yourselves with the team who will be spending the entire day with you. Thirdly, an engagement shoot is a great idea to not waste your makeup trial! When you get all dolled up it’s almost essential to take photos. Another reason you may want to have an engagement shoot is for the fur babies. Often our fur babies don’t attend weddings, but having them at the engagement shoot is a great way to include your fur baby so they aren’t missing out completely. Plus who doesn’t want professional images with their fur baby to cherish forever! Lastly, your engagement images can be used at your wedding or on the lead up to the big day. You may want to make save the date cards, use images for annoucements on social media, have your guests sign a special photobook or enlargement on the wedding night, etc.
If these reasons have sealed the deal for you on having an engagement shoot, we’d love to hear from you! From the end of this month onwards, we will be available for engagement shoots on weekdays and some Sundays. Get in touch now email@example.com
