Engagement Shoot: Behind the Scenes

23 Apr

I am going to be very honest with you…

I am not sure what the point of an engagement shoot is. Unless, of course, you are using the photographs for stationery. But most people don’t. But everyone these days does an engagement shoot. It is the done thing.

So, I actually don’t know why people do them. What I do know, however, is that they are great. I mean, who would say no to having fabulous pictures of themselves and their spouse-to-be? You hire a professional, get dressed more fabulously than you normally would for a park/city street/beach/vintage car, use cute props like hats and umbrellas that would normally look ridiculous, and you smile like you’re on loon tablets because being engaged is without doubt the happiest time of your life!

Sounds good to me.

So, this weekend, we did our engagement shoot. We shot it in Jo’burg with the very talented Xander van der Merwe.

Some of the pictures will be posted once they’ve been edited and all that fancy picture stuff. For now, here are some behind the scenes shots, and one times very excited bride-to-be posting to let you know that she cannot wait to see the photographs!
