PRE-WEDDING / ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS

Engagement Shoots - what a cheesy tacky pointless thing is that? Well, that's what I used to think before I did them! But please, let me tell you more.

Pre-wedding shoots do not have to be cheesy and tacky at all; you can capture some incredible shots that look like scenes from romantic films without feeling awkward. I have some beautiful zoom lenses that allow me to capture natural shots from a distance, so you don't feel like you're on a photo-shoot at all. It's the same unobtrusive way I shoot weddings.

I don't heavily direct the shoots. If you're a kissy cuddly couple, then go for it. If you're not and you fancy something more low-key we can create some of those hand-holding silhouette shots you'll see on Charlie and Dan's shoot below. All my couples are different, so the pre-wedding shoots are too. 

Most importantly, it's an incredible opportunity to get to work with me before your big day and get used to how I work with you to get the best shots. If I get some photos and angles you're not so keen on then you can say so and have even more confidence coming up to your big day. 

Oh, and you'll have a collection of wonderful photo memories you can look back on over the years and share with friends and family. 

 
"We cannot express how grateful we are to Heather for taking these truly wonderful pictures of us, giving us memories for life of a truly unique & outstanding experience. Her professionalism from the start has not wavered during these uncertain times, from booking to postponing to a 2m+ engagement shoot we have been incredibly pleased and delighted that we found Heather & booked her for our wedding."

"We just want to start with a massive thank you. We found Heather while looking for our wedding photographer and fell completely in love with her work. Arranging a meeting was really easy and she was super responsive. It’s fair to say that she far exceeded all our expectations in every way. She is highly professional, talented and a true natural in her work. Due to Covid-19 we had to delay our wedding in which she was really accommodating. We were also fortunate enough to get a once in a life time engagement photo shoot in the heart of empty Bath city centre. Something we are still talking about and admiring the beautiful photos she created. As two people who arnt the best in front of the camera she really made us feel at ease and comfortable just like we were hanging out with our friend, something I know we both won’t forget anytime soon. Thank you Heather, can’t wait for our wedding and the photos that will follow!."

"Having Heather photograph our engagement shoot was amazing. She put us at ease right from the beginning and had us laughing for two hours. We’ve just received the images back and they are incredible. The editing is perfect and we love them all."
