Photoshoots, Engagement shoots, couple shoots, pre-wedding shoots – they’re all the same thing.  We call them In-Love Shoots and they’re available to everyone.  Whether you’ve just got engaged or are celebrating an anniversary or just fancy a photo shoot with your partner for no particular reason, a couple shoot is a great way to spend a bit of time together at an inspiring location and create some lovely pictures.

Natural engagement shoot photos


In the same way we photograph couples on their wedding day, couple shoots are all about the two of you enjoying the quiet time together. No stiff posing – just enough direction so you look good to the camera.

Relax into it and forget about the lenses.  Above all else, we just want you to be yourselves.

Couple shoots can be done in many locations.   We can suggest a few places close to our home in Bromsgrove, or we can go further afield. We’d like to hear your ideas if you have some place specific in mind  As long as the location is practical and any required permission is granted, we’re good to go.

Sessions start at about 1.5 hours, but you can book for more time if required.   Longer shoots are especially good if you’d like to use multiple locations or have a change of outfit.


These shoots are photographed by Rob. If you’d like to have the additional creative input and alternative angle that Sarah brings, she’s also available as an option.

All shoots come complete with the high-resolution image files, all edited to the same standard you see here on our site. You can print and share them as much as you like.  You have the choice of receiving your files either as a download or on a USB.

Couple shoots start at £250
£150 if you’ve booked us for your wedding.

Shoots further afield,  or for half-day or full day are also available.

Please enquire for full details.  We’d love to hear from you.

Can we have a photo shoot at a stately home or museum?
That would be amazing!  It all depends on the venue and whether or not they allow photo shoots on their premises.  If permission can be gained then we’re all good to go.  Please note that any entrance fees or additional charges are your responsibility.

What time of year and time of the day?
We can do couple shoots throughout the year.  During the main wedding season your shoot would likely need to be on a weekday.   The time of day depends on the location we’re using and the time of the year. Summer evenings are particularly nice!

Are shoots available at weekends?
It depends!  During the spring, summer and autumn most of our weekends are tied up with weddings and meetings for weddings.  We’re happy to do a shoot for you if we’re available, but we won’t be able to block a weekend date off months in advance.  Get in touch and we’ll see what’s possible.

Do we book for a particular date or is it flexible?
Due to the great British weather we would always advise having some flexibility with the scheduling of your shoot.

How long before we receive the pictures?
Our usual turnaround is within four weeks.

We’d like to bring our dog – is this OK?
While we’re big dog lovers, it’s worth remembering that bringing your dog may mean we are are more limited with what we can do on the shoot.  If you’re OK with this then it’s  absolutely fine as long as dogs are allowed at the location we’re using.
