shannon + barry | engagement shoot

I caught up with Bethany from Bethany Smith Photography and she filled me in on the cuteness that was Barry & Shannon's engagement shoot! I can't wait to see the wedding photographs!

Location of the Engagement Shoot: 

This was shot near the couples' house in Annan, some around the old fishing docks and some near farmland around the railway.

The Wedding:

Shannon and Barry are getting married on Thursday 7th August 2014 at the Crichton Memorial Church in Dumfries.

What did you love most about shooting this couple?

They were a very easy couple to shoot as they're clearly very in love and happy to be around! At first they were perhaps nervous of being in front of a camera, but after a few laughs they were super natural and we just enjoyed ourselves!

Why you would recommend an engagement shoot for future couples?

Engagement shoots are a great opportunity not only for me and the couple to get to know each other a bit better, but also for the couple to get used to being in front of the camera together before the big day. The engagement is often followed by the excitement and business of planning the wedding, so I think its a really sweet way to remember a really important moment together.

You can catch Bethany on her websiteFacebook or Twitter.

 Remember, an engagement shoot will give you a taster of what posing for your photographs will be like on your wedding day, and will help you feel more relaxed when the day comes!
