E-shoot week on English Wedding

engagement photography on english weddingHello there, and happy Sunday night / Monday morning. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed as much gorgeous sunshine as we had here in Cheshire today. Well it’s back to work with a bump on Monday morning – for me too – but I think I can lift your spirits by saying… “Welcome one and all to e-shoot week on the English Wedding blog!”

This week’s all about engagements. Christmas and New Year are peak times for proposals, and if you’re just setting out on your wedding planning adventure let me say a very happy Congratulations to you and your other half – and enjoy every second of the whole experience! It will be a journey you will never forget.

So what’s e-shoot week all about? I thought it would be a great opportunity to share some pre-wedding photography sessions with everyone. I featured the first ever e-shoot on English Wedding back in October and it inspired me to look into pre-wedding photography in a big way. Many photographers offer engagement photography as a way to get comfortable with being photographed before your big day – and I think it’s a fantastic thing to do.

Enjoy e-shoot week. Every morning there’ll be a new engagement shoot on the blog, with fabulous sunlit city scenes, urban pre-wedding photography, snowy forest scenes and most important of all, couples in love having a great time on their photo sessions!

There’ll be e-shoots from some of my favourite wedding photographers. Photo credits to the left of this post, from top to bottom, are:

  • Beautiful images and lucky photographers. Nobody around here ever wants engagement photos (I’ve had only one couple do an engagement session). It’s also very snowy around here right now.
    Thanks for posting these images. Karen

    Great idea Claire, I’m really looking forward to seeing these shoots! I have found that engagement shoots are becoming increasingly popular and couples are even asking for them as part of their initial enquiry to photographers now. They are great for helping couples relax in front of the camera, and are a lot of fun too!
