What are they and how do they work?
A complete Guide.
An Engagement session is a Photoshoot and/or Save the date Video tailored around you, a little pre-treat for any couple planning a wedding and Fire and Ice absolutely love doing them!
Some of our Packages include a Complimentary Photography/Videography Engagement session – and we highly recommend you take us up on it – trust us, you will enjoy it we promise!
How do they work?
So you have your wedding Photographer/Videographer chosen – now what?
You book in for your Complimentary Engagement session of course!
First decide what season you would like.
Spring, Summer? Perfect! Those golden hour shots are phenomenal
Autumn? – The colours during Autumn are amazing , you won’t be disappointed!
Winter? – we can’t guarantee snow – but we can guarantee a beautiful winter feel to your photos/video.
If you decide you would like a Summer session, please bear in mind we keep these strictly Monday – Friday.
This is peak season for us and our weekends are fully booked with weddings.
Location is everything – we like to get creative during our Engagement sessions!
Our Engagement sessions have taken us to some truly beautiful places!
The Isle of Jura, Snowdonia, Glencoe and even Iceland!
So from local beaches, to the peaks of Snowdonia, what’s your preference?
We time our sessions perfectly, to ensure you get the best out of your session.
We aim to start roughly an hour before sunset or sunrise (if you don’t mind an early start!)
The light will be incredible!
So are you an early riser, or would you prefer an evening shoot?
What to wear.
We’ve got that covered too!
Solid colors are always best. Avoiding patterns ensures a more timeless look. If possible, incorporate layers into your clothing to give it more visual interest and allow for movement.
For him, a pair of trousers (more fitted/tighter tends to look better for photos) with a solid dress shirt, try to avoid t-shirts with jeans look.
For her, a dress is always a win, or clothing using layers (something with movement in it) works great too. Dresses or layers that wave/flow in the wind are fantastic for capturing movement and bringing more life to your photos. Aim for solid colors & earthier tones if possible. We will also usually spend an hour or two walking around, so bring some comfortable shoes to.
Let’s have fun!
Engagement sessions are also a way for us to get to know each other.
You want to feel comfortable with your Photography/Videography team, we will do everything we can to get you relaxed in front of that camera – we have a few tricks!
Some couples prefer natural, more candid photos – whilst others prefer all posed.
Maybe a mix of both? We can do that to.
