I love a well executed engagement shoot. It’s always more relaxed than a wedding day and you can really get a sense of what a couple are all about. Not only that, but for YOU it’s an amazing way to feel comfortable in front of the camera before the big day. The more relaxed you are, the better you’ll look, trust me. This pre-wedding shoot from Alline at Beatrici Photography (who you’ll find on our recommended supplier directory, The Love Lust List) truly captures what Megan and Ben are all about. Fun, creative and obviously mad about each other. I can’t wait to see their wedding day, which looks set to be incredible – a Star Wars Boho Woodland extravaganza (!) you can read all about it below…
Not all engagement shoots were created equally and when you have Kara and Josh’s genetic good fortune, plus the photography skills of Leeroy.T – the result is HOT. This truly is the engagement shoot to end all engagement shoots.
I’m not sure you’ll actually believe me when I say this, but Kara and Josh met on Tinder. I know, I know, I didn’t think people this good looking used Tinder either, but apparently in Australia they do… 😉 Those Aussies know how to up the style and gorgeousness ante on every level!!!
Kara’s words about love and about how she felt when she met Josh made me all weepy, so make sure you go back and read her words, once your eyes have recovered from the dazzling beauty and hotness. This is one wedding we’re REALLY excited to see. I need you all to help me convince Leeroy to do a wedding season in Europe too!!! We need his talents over here!
Having done this job for rather a long time now, I’ve developed an obsession with beautiful photography. Once you’re poured over wedding images for years and years and years, you really start to get an instinctive feel for talent. The way people capture light, their subjects, frame their images and draw emotion from every scene. Then there’s the edit, a way to truly set your style apart from the rest. I’m hopeless with a camera myself, but I’d like to think I can pick a good photographer a mile off. Julian Zacsfalvi is definitely one the best I’ve come across lately, there’s nothing fussy or overdone about his work – Anna Maria and Anders look completely at ease. The setting, a rugged beach dotted with the sweetest little candy striped huts near Malmö, Sweden, is simple and natural, the perfect backdrop for this portrait session.
How atmospheric are these gorgeous pre wedding images from Carrie Lavers? I love that she took Justine and James to places close to their hearts to capture some adorable couple shots, but with the most incredible backgrounds. Even on grey days, London is such a striking city.
You’ll find Carrie on our recommended supplier directory, The Love Lust List, and if you’re looking for an incredible photographer, with a fresh and stylish eye – then she’s your girl. She’s also 100% lovely, so will make you feel completely at ease on your wedding day (and all of her couples get a FREE pre wedding shoot too)!!!
Carrie is currently running a special promotion purely for RMW readers, 20% off your booking when mentioning you found her via Rock My Wedding. So that means an amazing photographer, for a great price AND a little extra money in the shoe/music/drinks pot 🙂 Carrie has a few dates available for this year and for next, so get in touch ASAP.
But now, lets enjoy Justine and James’ stroll around London town…bonus points to them for the matching scarves – what cuties.
I’ve come to the conclusion that Maddy is actually Margot Robbie. If you don’t know who Margot Robbie is, then firstly, where have you been?! And secondly Google her. See – Maddy is actually Margot Robbie.
This shoot from Chris Barber is infectiously joyful. He has captured Maddy and Patrick at their most relaxed and happy. Looking at these images is like peaking through the windows into their home. They are intimate, fun and totally genuine, which is just the most wonderful thing to have captured on film. Enjoy lovely ones and I hope this serves to help you think outside the box when it comes to the photography for your own big day…
Capturing couples in places they feel at home always brings out the best in them. Jess and Luke spent lots of time around Kings Cross when they first got together, so it conjures up lots of feelings of excitement, anticipation and happiness for them.
Tim Dunk is one of our favourite wedding photographers and this quirky pre-wedding shoot should show you exactly why we love his style so much…
I have never seen London looking so quiet and mysterious. The early alarm clock and 7am meet for this urban engagement shoot was definitely worth it. Jessica Williams Photography has captured some really intense and incredibly romantic portraits in the city the couple hold so dear. With The Tower of London and St Paul’s Cathedral making absolutely stunning backdrops. It’s as though the crowds have deliberately dispersed so as not to intrude on this momentous occasion.
This pre wedding shoot may be foggy, but it definitely warms the heart. The tender embraces, laughter and loving gazes will have you swooning and longing for the weekend with your beau. Come see…
Oh my gosh this pre wedding shoot in the Peak District is SO romantic. That opening portrait captured by Deborah Grace Photography of our gorgeous couple kissing in the rain is amazing, and super HOT to boot.
They look utterly at ease laying in the fields, drinking in the views and embracing one another. Their love and happiness literally radiates out of each image, and you won’t be able to resist smiling and swooning along with them.
If you want to see more of this gorgeous couple, you NEED to pop back to the blog this afternoon when we’ll be sharing their gorgeous at-home marquee wedding, full of even more smiles, prettiness and love.
A pre wedding shoot where you get to wear your bridal gown before the big day definitely sounds like a (Chinese) tradition I would love to adopt. I mean who doesn’t want to be able to wear their gorgeous gown more than once? Especially if it’s one as dreamy as Emma’s. Although I must confess I’m equally in love with her laser cut Peter Pan collared dress too.
After the couple flew in from Shanghai, Irene Yap took them to the London streets which hold so many memories of their time dating. Each location has provided the most amazing backdrops for their portraits. Paddington Station has never looked so good, and Hyde Park looks like a heavenly English country garden.
This is definitely an engagement shoot to swell the heart, and the perfect start to a Friday afternoon.
