Milli & Josh - Engagement shoot

Pre-note - this engagement shoot was pre COVID-19 so don't worry about some the details in this engagement shoot story! Here's Milli to explain more about the shoot.

I love a freebie so when I saw this free gift on UK Bride I just searched for photographers near us and then instagram stalked the ones that came up and Keith and Olivias (We the Kasas) looked right up our street. I dropped them an email saying we wanted a super informal shoot somewhere local and we really wanted to include our dog since he is our furry child. They were so on board with all our crazy suggestions and on the day they went above and beyond even dangling dog treats just above the camera to get Finn to look at the camera.

When we first spoke I asked what they included in the freebie and they said a 45minute ish shoot and then they would send a selection (5 or so) of the best images over to us after they'd edited them. I thought for a free shoot this was awesome as i'd assume there would be some kind of catch where you have to pay for the pictures but they were so chilled.

After the shoot we sat and had a pint in a nearby pub and they let us go through the pictures they'd taken on their camera and show them our favourites so they could focus on sending those ones across to us. A couple of weeks later an email landed in our inbox and they didn't just send 5 pictures, they sent over 20 and they were all amazing. We immediately booked them for our wedding, 2 photographers for 3 hours was just less than £500 with all the images sent to us digitally after the wedding (we didn't want a pro photo album as we're doing one ourselves with an album my fiance's parents bought us). 

They also ran a huge discount (20% I think) for all NHS workers during lockdown, I'm not sure when that ended but it might be worth mentioning. They travel all across the country shooting weddings and I believe Olivia also does some wedding stationary stuff but my cousin did all of ours so we never asked for details on that.

Wow! How beautiful are these photos?! I love how involved Finn was in the shoot and it's made for the cutest set of photos. I'm really happy to announce that Milli and Josh's December wedding is now featured on here too so definitely go and check out their beautiful Christmas micro wedding.
