As a wedding photographer I am offering as well photo shootings in order to get to know each other. For this kind of shooting before the wedding there are many names: In the U.S. one calls it engagement shooting and some call it shootings for people in love. The purpose of this photo session is to get simply beautiful pictures which can be used for invitation cards or guestbooks. Some give them away as a present and rejoice others by doing so.
These shootings offer the further advantage of the bridal couple and the weddings photographer getting to know each other, although it does not necessarily require a wedding photographer to take nice pictures for couples.
How does such a shooting take place? Very simple, one arranges to meet and then drives to where it is nice. In this case the winterly harbor was a perfect photo location and we had a lot of fun.
