There doesn’t need to be a special reason to do a couple shoot; like the Beatles said, “all you need is love”! Couple sessions are fun sessions that take place on a location of your choice, and it’s a celebration of two people in love!
Engagement sessions are a great way to practice in front of the camera before the big day. It’s a chance to have fun and you can have the photos done in a more casual setting.
As a wedding photographer, I encourage all my brides and grooms to book in for an engagement session before the wedding. I even offer it as a free inclusion with some of my wedding photography packages!
It really helps you to prepare for the wedding day when you will be smiling for cameras pretty much all day, especially if you are a bit nervous or camera shy!
Once you receive the photos, you will also get a chance to see which expressions and poses work and don’t work, and you might even get some great ideas for things to do on the big day.
The most important thing is that you learn that having photos taken can be fun and a great chance to create memories! It’s an excuse to get dressed up, go somewhere you normally wouldn’t go, and do something you normally wouldn’t do! It’s also a great chance to get to know the photographer and get a feel for what to expect from your wedding photos.
Most of the time, my couples have a great time; even if they start off being nervous, they walk away feeling more prepared for their wedding day. When they receive their photos, if they’re not normally keen on photos of themselves, they are always pleasantly surprised and they get more excited about having their photos taken on their wedding day.
All in all, doing an engagement session can only be a good thing, and it leaves the bride and groom more prepared and relaxed on the wedding day. And it’s a lot of fun!

“Thank you Malin for our beautiful engagement photos. Ben and I were a little nervous but you made us feel comfortable; we ended up really enjoying our shoot and couldn’t stop giggling! It was such a fun experience. We ended up using all the photos on our wedding website. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others.” Charmaine & Ben
“Malin, we just wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful photos you took to mark our engagement! For a couple who don’t particularly like being centre stage and are a bit camera shy, you made us both feel very comfortable and relaxed. We have already used one of the photos for our Save the Dates for the wedding. We will definitely be in touch in the future and have recommended you to our friends. Thanks again!” Kathy & Stewart
