FRIENDLY Surrey Engagement Photographer

Engagement photo shoots are a great way of capturing newly engaged couples in a natural and stress free environment.

Being based in Surrey I can easily travel to clients in the London, Hampshire and Surrey area. I have many photography hotspots which I use for engagement photo shoots based on the kind of photos a couple may want. Talk to me to discuss which area and locations we can take your engagement photos.

Myriame has been absolutely fantastic from our engagement shoot to the creation of our wedding album! She taught us how to pose and made sure we felt comfortable at all times. The photos are absolutely amazing. I absolutely recommend her. Thank you so much for all your help Myriame.

The Collections



Engagement shoots are a stress free and fun way to get used to having your photos taken, especially if you are a little camera shy. I will put you totally at ease so on the big day you will hardly notice me, get in touch for more information. For £250.00 you can add this to any collection. I love doing these as I like to see how you interact with each other and you can see how I work not to mention it’s a fun way for us to get to know each other. You get to keep the images too and see how the client gallery works.




We headed to Richmond Park for a complimentary engagement shoot where we were made to feel at such ease, as the thought of having your photos taken can be quite daunting! Myriame was amazing and gave us such good advice, our little terrier Prescott and Myriame’s rescue dog Bella got along great and it was such a lovely afternoon!

Why choose Myriame Lawley for your engagement shoot?

Engagement shoots are a great & fun way to get used to having your photos taken.

It can be quite daunting having your photos taken, however rest assured, I will put you totally at ease and before you know it you will be relaxed and enjoying yourselves.

I will share some posing tips with you for your bridal portraits, so on the day of your wedding you feel comfortable and get beautiful, natural images.
Engagement sessions are a stress-free session where you can let your hair down, get to know how I work and I get insight into how the two of you interact with each other, so I can capture little moments and deliver beautiful images you will simply love.



She gave us an engagment shoot prior too the wedding which was to make us more comfortable in front of the camera and to help us understand how to stand etc. Myriame was happy to include our children in the engagement shoot and our children just loved her and felt completely at ease with her. The photo’s from the engagement shoot were simply stunning and we instantly new our wedding photo’s were going to be equally as good.


What to wear in engagement photos?

After you have booked your engagement shoot, I will send you a helpful brochure telling you what to wear and what to expect from your engagement session. In short, the following applies to most engagement shoots:

Firstly, wear clothes you know you feel comfortable wearing. The best outfits are the ones that are expressions of your personality. Don’t over dress if that is not your usual style. Be you and wear an outfit that feels like you. Wear outfits that complement each other, that way your photos will blend well. Remember the season and where you are having your photo shoot. If you are in a park or in the woods wear suitable walking shoes or bring your heels in a bag for putting on when we stop for the shoot. You don’t need more than one outfit, but you can bring a different jacket, hat or scarf if you would like to have some variety.

Never wear something brand new, sometimes you never know how annoying outfits can be until you have worn them at least once. Anything that makes you tug and pull makes you look uncomfortable, and this shows through in your photos.

What happens in an engagement shoot?

Asides from having lots of fun, I will ease you into the shoot and give you easy, reassuring guidance. Look at each other, laugh, kiss and cuddle, its all about visual and physical images that capture emotion and the love you have for each other.

How soon after engagement should we do our shoot?

This really depends on what season you would like your photoshoot to take place. As you can see there are many different options and seasons for engagement photography. Book your session once you have decided where and when you would like your photos, however, don’t leave it to the last six weeks leading up to your wedding as you will have lots of other things on your mind in preparation for your big day.



How do we receive our engagement photos?

You receive your images, professionally edited on an online private password protected gallery within four to six weeks of your photo session.



Can we have an engagement photo album for keepsake?

Prints can be ordered from the gallery and a selection of albums, folio boxes or mini accordion albums are available to purchase, please ask for further information.
