Engagement Shoot, Pre- wedding shoot, pre-wedding session, couples shoot...
There are so many different titles being used between photographers around the world for the mini shoot we attach/include in our packages. One of the above, maybe others that I have not come across.
BREAK THE MOULD
As you know I am not one for the norm and something was not sitting right with me when I was talking about the pre-wedding shoot and when I was writing about it on my website. It was not encapsulating what I knew the value of the pre-shoot was for my couples. So I use a different term.
Whichever term is used all the professionals I know will agree it is an essential part of the wedding photography journey.
