Why did you have an engagement shoot?

“We had met Hannah and Ben at a wedding fayre and loved HBA’s portfolio. We wanted to use the engagement shoot to discuss what’s important to us on our wedding day and what we want to take away from the photos.”

Why did you choose the shoot location?

“Hannah and Ben suggested we base our engagement shoot around an activity. Since we’re making our own wedding cake and were planning on decorating and stacking a practice cake, we thought this would be the perfect activity for the shoot. This also meant we could do this in the comfort of our own home.”

How do you feel having an engagement shoot helped with having your wedding pictures taken?

“The engagement shoot was perfect not only for getting to know Hannah and Ben, but for them to get to know us as well. They put us totally at ease during the shoot and we couldn’t be happier with the photos, which our friends and family agree really do capture our personalities. We’re so glad we could approach our wedding day with complete confidence in our photographers.”
