EEK! My first engagement shoot!

OK this weekend I have my first ever engagement shoot. We're off to good old rufford country park in Nottinghamshire. I have never attempted to do anything like this before so if the kind people of pixalo have any tips for me, they would be greatly appreciated!! Hopefully the sun will be out and we will start shooting at about 3.30 and wait for the sunset which should start just before 5pm. I am quite nervous but excited and just hope I don't waste the couples time!!!

Re: EEK! My first engagement shoot!

Try and get them to ignore you so that there are some nice natural poses, lots of fun and walks and its that time of year where the leaves have fallen, if you can get them to relax enough to act like 12 yr olds (well you know what I mean) you should get some lovely shots.
