Do you find the thought of an engagement session (or pre-wedding photography), having a camera pointing at you, intimidating or possibly terrifying!!? You’d be surprised how often I hear “I hate being in front of the camera”. Many featured below said the same before their pre wedding shoots. You might be anxious, feel silly or you won’t know how to stand , I get that, but after a short while with me, I promise you’ll forget that and be just YOU, like these lovely couples all did.
1 meet with your photographer
A pre-wedding shoot gives us that chance to meet and connect with each other. We find out more about each other and how we’d like to work together, and have fun! You’ll tell me afterwards you actually enjoyed it.
2 RELAX into it
I have ways to help relax you and get honest, non-posed emotions. You’ll forget I’m there! We’ll find a cafe and we will have a good old chat about your wedding over a cuppa!
3 Lets ROCK that location
Whether we meet somewhere colourful, architectural, or countrysidey, you can rely on me to get some stunning images that you’ll be happy to have! We’ll get creative and you’ll see how I work, on your wedding day, you’ll GET it!
4 You’ll feel wedding ready!
Couples who have a pre-wedding shoot tell me they can’t wait to do it all again but in their wedding clothes! This means you will enjoy your special day all the more, you’ll know exactly what to expect. The images we create are a lovely record of the pair of you together, how you were feeling at that time. Being engaged is fun! I want you to feel and celebrate that! My couples that have an engagement shoot tell that it actually helps them focus on what’s left to do and to feel like ‘we are nearly there now’.
5 Other important people
Hey wait a minute … you love your dog? And you want to bring him too? No problem!
So don’t worry – go for it, and enjoy! Couples tell me that this part of their wedding planning was the most fun and enjoyable!!
