Pre wedding shoots usually last between 1-2 hours, we will  go to a location of your choice and have a walk together stopping here and there for photos. If you are not sure where you would like to go I have many recommendations depending on what you are looking for and where you are located. As with my wedding photography I aim to capture natural portraits that truly reflect you as a couple, the most important thing is helping you feel comfortable in front of the camera. On the wedding day there are a lot of other things going on and  time constraints, so it is nice to have this time to relax with your partner and capture some beautiful moments together.

Pre-wedding shoots are included in one of the wedding packages I offer but can also be added on to whichever you package you book for an additional cost.


If you are simply looking for a photo shoot of you and your partner without booking a wedding with me get in touch and we can arrange an individual quote!

Engagement Shoots

An Engagement, or 'Pre Wedding', shoot is a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera, get to know me as your photographer and how I work, as well as capture some beautiful photos of you as a couple outside of the wedding environment.


We were keen to do something to mark the occasion of our engagement and never having done a photoshoot before we both felt it would be a good opportunity to get a feel for it before the wedding. Rachael was fantastic from the very moment we met up with her, putting us at ease with her friendly but professional manner. My fiancé was nervous about the photoshoot, but even he commented on how comfortable he felt. We had a fantastic few hours with Rachael, who listened to our request for natural and fun photos in a location that meant something to us. There was no awkward posing or impersonal direction - instead Rachael managed to capture us sharing moments together as just ourselves. We honestly could not be happier with the results, and of course have gone on to book her as our wedding photographer feeling completely confident in her ability to provide amazing memories for us to treasure forever.
