Get comfortable in front of the camera with a pre-wedding photoshoot

Here at Wedding Ideas, we want you to have the best day of your life on your wedding day, and part of that is having wedding photography that you feel happy and proud to look at again and again. Engagement photoshoots are an excellent way to get comfortable in front of a camera before your wedding.

Our very own Details Editor Sophie Grabham talks about her engagement shoot experience and how it can prepare you for the excitement of the big day.


“We headed down to one of our favourite spots down in Lynmouth, Devon, and had a lovely walk in the sunshine while our wedding photographer Albert Palmer got down to business and snapped away,” says Sophie.

“For any of you considering a pre-wedding or engagement shoot, I would definitely recommend it! Not only do you get some lovely photos as a gorgeous keepsake but it’s also a great opportunity to get to know your wedding photographer better, meaning you’ll feel more comfortable on the big day.”


Sophie and Max headed to the seaside for their photoshoot but there are hundreds of places that you could consider. Choose a location that’s special to you, and brings back happy memories. Perhaps the location your first romantic walk together, or the place where you h2b proposed. Your photographer may also encourage you to bring props to the photoshoot  – a colourful umbrella, a change of outfit, perhaps even your pet – something that will make the shoot even more personal to you.
