Firstly, in answer to the article heading – yes and no.
The advice I give to my couples on whether or not to have an engagement shoot depend on a few things.
- Were both the bride and groom at the wedding photography booking appointment?
- Are either of you worried or nervous about having your photo taken?

To tackle these points, it’s important to understand that great wedding photos (or any portraits for that matter) will depend on
Following a proposal in Paris while on a dinner cruise along the Seine in full view of the Eiffel Tower, Elliot and Jess are destined for a life of romance and good times and the engagement shoot was proof of that.
Svetlana and Jason were just too cool for school in Jonathan’s recent E:Session. Jonathan loved Svetlana’s look and commented that she reminded him of a young Miranda Kerr. Now that’s a compliment to be shared!

Lots of E:sessions happening in the studio at the moment and with the wonderful days we are experiencing with Spring – why not!
This is a little late coming but I just put the phone down to Karla after discussing the details of her wedding day – this Saturday – when I remembered how much fun we had at their engagement shoot.
It was a bit of rush to get a few of these images up for Nicole and Beanie as they were all sorted to come into the studio today but unfortunately Nicole had to reschedule until next week. I know how anxious she has been to see these images so here is a sneak peek.
E Session, engagement shoot, pre wedding shoot, are all just different names for the same thing; a chance to get some great images before your wedding day but there can be more to the shoot than meets the eye.
I can’t remember the number of times that I have raised my camera to have couples and mainly the guys (who have been dragged to the shoot) say “I hate having my photo taken.” If this is you or your partner, read on, as the best thing before your wedding day could be an e-shoot.
Below are a few images from last weeks engagement shoot of very cool couple, Brooke and Josh. These guys just oozed style and…
