Why did you have an engagement shoot?

“We had an engagement shoot mainly so we could get to know our photographer better, so that we would be more relaxed on our wedding day and to get to know her style. We also wanted to have a nice set of photos separate to the wedding day.”

How do you feel having an engagement shoot helped with having your wedding pictures taken?

“We think that the shoot helped us build a relationship with Julia and therefore we felt more comfortable being ourselves around her and the camera on our wedding day. It also gave us the opportunity to suggest different poses that we wanted to try for the wedding day.”
