When I have anyone reach out about engagement shoots I would send off the following email to them. This gives them an idea of what I have to offer and after a reply email I would either call or message to see if I can help the couple with their photography needs. Talking about places that they love helps me to give them ideas or maybe they have a spot in mind, then I can expand their idea to what is possible for them.
I’m certainly not about boring photos I want couples to be thrilled. I’ll go the extra mile whether it be finding a remote location to suit them or getting intimate photos for shy couples who have not had photos taken before.
The reason I also love engagement sessions or as I call them (styled pre wedding couples session) is that instantly the couple will know I am on their team! Being comfortable and confident that I am the photographer for them for their wedding day.
Are there other photographers charging less? I get this often. Yes there are but they don’t offer you the time and talent that I will devote to you and your day, nearly every couple I work with have me shoot their baby and family photos. Once you have found me you will have no reason to go anywhere else. I LOVE that about my couples!
So here is my reply to your initial question, after that we will talk about places we can shoot, the time of day we will shoot, clothing choices, a look that they had in mind, love a good pinterest or instagram mood board, and anything else they would like so we can create some magic for them!
Hi Fabulous person (I actually pop their name in that spot!)
Thanks for reaching out, I can do a engagement shoot on it’s own or as part of one of my wedding collections. It’s probably best to work out what you need for your wedding day, how many hours of coverage you would like and if you want a second photographer to get all the moments as your partner gets ready also great to capture extra candid moments during the ceremony and afterwards.
My engagement shoots are written into my second collection (styled pre wedding couples session).
If you are interested in adding one to either of my other collections or having a stand alone session the cost would be $495.00.
These shoots are in beautiful locations or locations meaningful to you, it’s a chance to get killer photos in unique or hard to get to spots, spots that you wouldn’t have time or the ability to get to on your wedding day.
We include drone images for these as well. You receive 100+ edited images in a online gallery to use how ever you would like.
I’m more than happy to chat about your photography needs and what you would really love from them.
Cheers Nicole xx
