Sarah & Lewis have been together for around a decade and are currently planing their 2017 wedding. I've known them both for a long, long time and it was a real honour to capture some memories for them. I won't be shooting their wedding, however, as I'll be on bridesmaid duties (how exciting!).
Although they will be getting married in Leeds, we chose Saltaire for the shoot. Saltaire is a World Heritage Site and is stunningly beautiful, with various locations and backdrops to create images (it also has lots of nice bars and cafes, if you are looking for a day out!). Sarah & Lewis love Saltaire and it also complements their vintage and alternative style, so was a perfect choice. Luckily, the weather played ball and it wasn't too wet/cold or too bright, for the most part.
Engagement shoots are a great way to 'practice' being in front of the camera prior to your wedding day, to try out or get to know your photographer, to create some beautiful images for your save the date cards/invitations, or simply to commemorate the occasion! If you have recently got engaged or are currently planing your wedding, I'd really recommend having an engagement shoot!
