I’m shooting Gerda & De Wet’s wedding early next year and I always tell my couples an engagement shoot is a great idea. It gives us a chance to get to know one another better, so I’m not a complete stranger when I arrive at the wedding. It gives the couple a change to see how a shoot works and lastly it makes them more confident and relaxed on the actual day. I must warn all other groom’s-to-be, De Wet set the standard VERY high. He did this whole shoot, the day after his bachelors… Needles to say I think he felt pretty bad but he never once complained.
