We talked to Caroline White Photography about whether couples should have an engagement shoot...
Once my couples meet me they soon realise that my approach will be fun and chilled out – and I won't ask them to perform! Having a pre-wedding shoot is a great way to help you relax in front of the lens.
There's a lot of trust involved when choosing your photographer. It's important to find someone who'll give you the confidence to be yourself so you can get on with enjoying your big day.
Rachael and Andrew were both feeling anxious before their pre-wedding shoot, but we ended up capturing some wonderful images of them laying in the long grass with the father-of-the-groom's classic car. They used this image as a motif on the big day, with it featuring on their guest book, place settings and on a large easel in the venue. I loved capturing all the emotions of their special day and felt I could blend in perfectly as we already knew each other.
