Let’s Book your engagement shoot!

Great decision, my friends!

An engagement shoot is designed entirely with your comfort in mind. With no pressure and no on-lookers, it’s the perfect thing to help you overcome any camera-shy nerves before your big day.

During your shoot we’ll spend a relaxed hour walking, talking and getting ot know each other better while I snap away with my camera. I’ll gently guide you into natural-looking poses, but also invite you to focus on each other. By doing that, you’ll soon forget I even exist, and happily just do your own thing – mess about, make each other laugh, pull silly faces, and sneak a quick kiss!

So by the time your big day comes around, you’ll be totally at ease. In fact, you won’t think about having your picture taken at all, but just about enjoying every moment of marrying your best friend. 

And the result?

Lots of beautiful, happy and relaxed photos!

“Lorna has been fantastic to work with. It was our first photoshoot and we were a bit nervous about it, but Lorna’s approach and personality helped us forget these nerves before we even started shooting. We’re excited for the wedding photographs now!”


“Lorna made the whole experience so easy and relaxed. She was so welcoming and professional. I don’t really like my photo being taken, yet it felt like we were just meeting a friend for a day out. I cannot recommend Lorna enough!”


“Lorna helped guide us with our various ‘poses’ but kept everything feeling very natural and relaxed. We both felt very at ease and even found that we were having fun! We really appreciate how we both really just look like ourselves rather than made up or over-posed.”

These are the questions I’m most often asked, but if you think of anything else, please drop me an email or give me a bell on 07871 275 179.

How far in advance of our wedding should we have our engagement shoot?
It’s totally up to you. You can have an engagement shoot as soon as you’re engaged or at any point in the run-up to your wedding. I would advise however that you have it no later than 3-4 months before your wedding, just so I definitely have time to edit your images and for you to see them ahead of your big day.  

I usually release dates 60 days ahead of time, but if you’d like to book further ahead than that, please email me to find out my availability.

How do we book our engagement shoot?

Easy! Simply look through my calendar below to find a date that works for you. Once I’ve received your booking request, I’ll pop you over an invoice for £300. Once you’ve paid, you’re all booked in!

I usually release dates 60 days ahead of time, but if you’d like to book further ahead than that, please email me to find out my availability.

Where should we have our engagement shoot?
You choose! Usually I ask my clients to choose the location for their engagement shoot, and suggest that ideally it should be somewhere outdoors that you know and love.


By choosing a location which brings back happy memories and/or where you usually feel relaxed will give you a great head start to feeling relaxed in front of the camera.

To give you some ideas, I’ve had photoshoots in city parks and gardens, cathedral cloisters, museums, Oxford college gardens, in the woods, at a Christmas market, and even at an ice rink!

Are you starting to get some ideas? I hope so! 🙂

Travel within a 60 mile radius of Winchester is included, but if you fancy a shoot futher afield, please let me know and I’m sure we can work something out.

Can we see a gallery of photos from engagement shoots?
Absolutely! Head over here to see some of my faviourte couple photos. 
How many images will we get from our engagement shoot?
From your engagement shoot you will get 10 high-res images to download, with the option to purchase more if you wish.
How long will it take to get our engagement shoot images?
Whilst I hate keeping people waiting (and I know how keen you will be to see your engagement photos!) I truly believe that quality is more important than speed, so it can take anything up to 4 weeks for delivery of images (particularly in busier, summer months).
What wedding photography packages do you offer?
As every wedding is different, I offer a range of packages to suit different needs, or it’s also possible to create a bespoke package to fit you perfectly. Full day wedding packages start at £1800.

I always find having a chat is a great starting point. Once I’ve met you and know more about your wedding plans, it’ll be easy to match or customise one of my packages to work perfectly for you.

Get in touch and let’s start talking about your wedding photography!
