FREE ENGAGEMENT SHOOT

With all full-day wedding photography packages booked this February

You’re SO excited to get married, but  hate having your photo taken as you always feel so awkward, and the idea of having to pose fills you with dread!

Sound familiar?

Well good news – It really doesn’t have to be that way, and this is where having an engagement shoot can really help. With no pressure and no on-lookers, an engagement shoot is the perfect thing to help you overcome any camera-shy nerves before your big day. Plus you get some lovely photos to show for it!

WHAT YOU GET

For the month of February I will add a FREE engagement shoot worth £250 when you book a full-day wedding photography package. 

What’s included:

  • Coverage of your wedding from bridal preparation to your first dance
  • Your wedding day images edited, in a beautiful online gallery
  • A complimentary 1 hour engagement shoot and 10 images to download

WHAT CLIENT’S SAY

“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!”

Sofia & Lee

“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!”

Kim & Gemma

“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.”

Laura & Jay

GRAB THE OFFER BEFORE YOUR DATE’S BOOKED UP!

Hi there!

I’m Lorna, a Bake Off loving, pot plant collecting camper van owner, and more importantly a photographer specialising in relaxed wedding photography.

I’m based in Winchester, Hampshire and love working with couples across the South East creating wedding photos full of natural smiles, fun and authentic emotion with less of the formal and none of the cringe!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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!

What do you do on an engagement shoot?

Together we’ll spend a relaxed hour, walking, talking and getting to 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? 

Beautiful, relaxed and natural-looking photos!🙂

 

How far in advance of our wedding should we have our engagement shoot?

Your 1-hour shoot would ideally take place 3-4 months before of your wedding on a weekday evening or a Sunday at a place special to you both. 

Please contact me to discuss dates. 

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.

Why?

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 £1550.

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!

How do we book?

Dates are reserved on a first-come first-served basis by submitting a signed photography agreement and a non-refundable booking fee of £300.

Full payment is required 30 days before your wedding.

If you would rather pay in monthly instalments to help spread the costs then this is something I’d be more than happy to discuss. Just let me know.

Please get in touch to find out about my availability.
