Engagement Shoots

Pre wedding shoot Sandridge, by St.Albans photographers

St.Albans photographer

St.Albans photographers, Ian and Emma of Ian Scott Photography have been running their photography business for 13 years and pride themselves on putting couples at ease infront of the camera. So many of our couples think they are un photogenic and say they feel uncomfortable infront of the lens.  A pre wedding shoot is a fantastic opportunity to dispel any fears you may have about being photographed.  Along with building a rapport so you feel comfortable enough to ignore us on the wedding day!  After all, if you feel at ease, your photographs will reflect this. Relax, breathe, have fun and let us capture the real you!

Pre wedding shoot at Tewin Bury Farm

Karen and Alpesh chose Tewin Bury Farm for their pre wedding shoot. Such a gorgeous sunny day and ideal to be at their wedding venue for their pre wedding shoot.  Karen & Alpesh’s Anglo-Indian wedding in June will be in the Meadow Barn and Millstream garden.  We had the pleasure in photographing them in the grounds to help put them at ease in front of the camera before the big day.  We aim to make all our couples feel comfortable enough with us that they can just ignore!  That way we can capture the day as it unfolds and the images will be relaxed and natural.

We had the pleasure in photographing Ellen and Barney at their stunning venue, Leez Priory, for their pre wedding shoot. It was the ideal opportunity for us to get to know the couple,see how they are together and capture some images that reflect their personalities.  as well as explore this beautiful venue, Leez Priory, ahead of the wedding. This relaxed shoot took place at the end of September, three months ahead of their winter wedding.  The weather couldn’t have been better which was perfect as who knows what the weather will be doing in December!  We often suggest pre wedding/engagement shoots at the couples chosen venue, particularly for winter weddings as having a mixture of photographs at different times of the year is so

Fabulous engagement shoot at Luton Hoo, Hertfordshire

The combination of a gorgeous couple, superb location and not a bad photographer resulted in this 😉

Angela and Lee’s pre wedding/engagement shoot at Fanhams Hall Herts

Angela and Lee are getting married this September and we met up with them for their pre wedding/engagement shoot at Fanhams Hall in May. Fanhams has so many photographic opportunities that doing a pre wedding shoot there doesn’t take away from the wedding day photographs. We find it so important to get to know our couples before the wedding day and vice versa, so an informal photo shoot is the ideal opportunity.  Being comfortable infront of the camera doesn’t always come naturally so having a practice before the big day is definitely worth it.  We usually combine the shoot with a planning session to find out more detail about the wedding day and hear all your plans. We think the best photographs are
