Pre wedding Engagement couple shoot in Hylands Park, Chelmsford, Essex – by Stéphanie Fairweather, Family & Wedding photographer

It is with great pleasure that I met up this summer at Hylands park with Hannah, Joe and Theo for their engagement/family photoshoot ahead of their wedding at Houchins later this Autumn. 3 year old Theo already had in this mind to make us run, he was putting my ability to ‘flash shoot’ to the limit. Maybe Theo didn’t know I had worked with children before nor that I have twins at home, I knew exactly what I was getting myself into and I was going to give it all. There were times where I admit we did have to abandon the buggy whilst rushing/running (no other speed known to Theo) to the next spot, it was just slowing us down. Joke aside- We all had a lovely time and I simply cannot wait to photograph Hannah & Joe later this year. See below brief words on why I think engagement shoots are worth the time, and for your enjoyment the viewing of some of the gorgeous family pics at Hylands Park.

Engagement shoots are a great way to get used to one another (being couple/photographer) prior to the big day. It allows the couple get a flavour of how the photographer is going to direct them and interact with them. For me, I like to see how comfortable (or not!) people feel once I point the camera in their direction. The idea is familiarise ourselves with each other, understand what is going to work for you on the day. This ‘practise’ shoot should put you at ease & let you connect with your partner in the most natural way (to you).

Ultimately for the couple its all about enjoying the experience during the shoot, getting beautiful images & looking forward to the big day with even more anticipation!
