I feel very lucky to be an engagement photographer in Manchester! I like to shoot your engagement in a natural and relaxed way where you and your partner can enjoy your time together in front of the camera without having to strike any cheesy poses or feel under any pressure to perform. You won’t feel like you’re taking part in a front page photoshoot. It’s just a pleasant stroll in the countryside with your loved one.
It’s all about capturing your unique personalities while working creatively with a beautiful outdoor location. I draw from my experience as a documentary wedding photographer and give you photos packed full of feeling and memories. They’ll be plenty of awesomely composed photos you’ll want to frame, sure, but looking back through your photos, you’ll be taken back to the moment, reliving your time together and most importantly, how you felt.
If you’ve also booked me to shoot your wedding, an engagement shoot (or ‘pre-wedding shoot’, if you like), is a perfect opportunity to warm up for your wedding. Don’t like having your photo taken? Don’t worry, no-one does. You’ll soon see that I’m a relaxed and undemanding photographer whose priority is that you enjoy yourselves. Each to their own: traditional and overly posed photos have their place, but I believe that the best photos are when people are letting their hair down and having a blast.
Are you planning to propose to your bride / husband to be, and would like the moment documented discreetly? Please get in touch to discuss your ideas and we can make a bespoke plan that suits your needs. As you might have guessed by the photos below, I love to travel. Don’t be scared to get in touch if you’re planning an excursion away from Manchester. With a sense of adventure and a flexible approach to pricing, please don’t assume an elopement to the countryside is going to cost the earth.
