A few weeks ago I met up with Archie and Susan in Pollok Park for their Glasgow Engagement Shoot. Archie and Susan are getting married at The Hotel Du Vin in St Andrews in July this year.
The May Day weather held out for us and we had a great time walking around the beautiful park and capturing some lovely couple shots of the two of them.
I’ve said it before, but having an engagement shoot prior to your wedding is a great way for us all to get to know each other a little better, it lets you see how I work and allows you to get used to being in front of the camera and relax a little. We also have a little time to chat about your wedding day and plan a few things out.
Another advantage is that I also get to see how you, the clients, are as a couple, how you interact with both me and the camera and your other half. This is great for me and gives me an idea of how I can direct you on the wedding day itself to get the best photos possible.
Most people are not used to being in front of the camera and feel quite awkward at first when they start posing for photos, especially in public places, but before long the nerves fade away and they relax and start to enjoy the shoot.
Below are a selection of my favourite images from Archie and Susan’s Glasgow Engagement Shoot:
