I have been out and about this week looking for some great locations to inspire your engagement photoshoot!

It goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway!) that both of these locations are dog friendly and have play areas for the kids. Most of my couples who have dogs love to bring them along to the engagement shoot, especially if they are perhaps too unruly to be part of their wedding day!

There is no hard and fast rule that it has to be just you two for your engagement photoshoot. Bring the dogs, bring the kids, its your shoot to have your way! it’s really just a fab way of getting comfortable in front of the camera to take away any nerves you might have about getting our photo taken on your wedding day. It’s also a good way for us to get to know each other more so I know how you like to be photographed ahead of your wedding.

And, lets be honest, it’s a nice change from just ‘going for a walk’ which has fast become the only thing to do since lockdown began!

Your Engagement Photoshoot is a fab time to hang out with each other and your photographer, but where to go?

Do you go for something similar in vibe to your wedding? Or do you go for something totally different?
