How to avoid the common traps and pitfalls of engagement photography!

This “7 Mistakes” booklet is designed to help couples avoid some of the typical traps and pitfalls many couples make when planning an engagement shoot. Some of them will be obvious and others will make you think a little. Some of them are plain silly. Others will be heart breaking. But all of them are avoidable!

Laced between each mistake are a set of tips (again some are very obvious and others quite crucial) …
These tips are designed for you to get more love, value and romance from your engagement shoot and photos – So make sure you read over the tips a couple of times!

Why engagement photography?
Engagement shoots are hugely popular in Asia, Australia and the US but if you haven’t been surrounded by engagement photography all your life (err … I’m Asian and grew up in Australia, so yea – enough said!) …
It can be quite a foreign concept and many couples associate engagement photography with cheesy photos taken by ammature photographers – and this doesn’t have to be the case! Especially with all the amazing local talent you can find here in the UK.

Engagement photography is becoming increasingly popular in the UK because the creative possibilities are endless. However for an engaged couple, endless possibilities can also cause a magnitude of problems:
“Where do I start? What do I need to do? What do I need to think about? Who do I ask?”

So this booklet is like … “Engagement Photography 101” for couples considering an engagement shoot. There are 7 Big things you need consider and 31 tips to help you along the way.

Remember your engagement shoot should be about you. It’s meant to be fun and exciting and relaxed. Download the booklet and read the tips. I want you to look back one day and really appreciate and relive the magic of being engaged.

And there is no better reason to capture photos than to be reminded of why you fell in love with the person you are about to marry!

Free Download vs. Hard Copy
When designing the booklet I was constantly asked if a hard copy would be available; it became obvious some people prefer a physical booklet so I have printed magazine-style booklets with a soft cover.

    I am very single but looking at the photos two things happened – one, I enjoyed them as a truly beautiful human experience – I was sharing and experiencing their joy, and I want my photo done by Thaoski because she gets such wonderful real and lovely expressions from her subjects. I wil hunt down an engaged couple and have their undying gratitude for showing them Thaoski’s work.

    As someone who isn’t usually short on words, I’m struggling to thump a comment into the keyboard that will concisely and accurately reflect my thoughtson your booklet.

The booklet is stunning. I hope you’re bursting with glee. Congratulations.

You have an uncanny ability to really ‘get people’, to truly understand what they are about and what they need. And this so shows in your work, as you manage to beautifully capture a couple’s story. If I was requiring your services, I would also ask you to help write the narrative to go with the photos. x

    Dear Richa Sharma,Yes, you are right 30% tax will be deducted from your employee PF amount on withdrawal as your EPF account is only 2 years old. This tax can only be saved if you keep the EPF amount for another 3 years in the EPF account before withdrawing. The tax cannot be saved by investing this amount into PPF account.

  41. Edith, Thank you so much, I appreciate it.Sherb, Thanks, I am always amazed at how differently we all see the same scene.

  48. These changes sound great! I have one question. Will receipts now be able to show the totals for BOTH the amount received AND the amount receipted? This is something that my organization really needs, not just on receipts but also on reports. I am hoping I can convince our finance department that we need to upgrade to GiftWorks 2011.
