I often get asked by couples whether they need to have an Engagement Portrait shoot? The answer of course is "No....." You don't need to do anything but here is a brief outline of why doing so is a good idea.....

Towards the back end of last year, I happened (purely by chance in the first instance) to pretty much land my dream job - photographing beautiful couture bridal gowns!!
