Why book a Pre-wedding / Engagement Photo Shoot?
In my opinion it’s so worth-while to have a pre-wedding photoshoot before your big day. You will get an informal and fun photoshoot at a location of your choice, which, in my experience, will help to relax you in front of the camera on your wedding day and show you how I work as a photographer.
It will help you to gain confidence in front of the camera and help you, as well as me, find out what angles and poses work best for you and what you like most. Plus you will get some really fantastic photography of you both as a couple, as well as giving you even more confidence for your up-coming wedding! It’s especially important if you know you have a ‘preferred side’ or have never liked an image of yourself!!
What can you do with your pre-wedding photos?
You could choose your favourite image from your shoot and we can create either a bespoke wedding guest book or a slightly different signature frame, on which your guests can write lovely personal messages for you on your wedding day. This is really popular!
What’s the advantage of an engagement / pre-wedding photoshoot?
Other than what I have said above (it will give you more confidence in front of the camera on your wedding day, it’s a chance to get to know your photographer more, plus you’ll get some fantastic relaxed informal images of you as a couple other than on your wedding day), there are a few things that you don’t have to worry about that you can’t change on your wedding day…
1. The weather! If it’s bad weather, we can re-arrange your pre-wedding shoot.
2. Timing – you don’t have to do it at a specific time of day or keep to within a certain time frame or worry about guests waiting for you.
3. Outfits – you can wear whatever you like and do whatever you like, without having to worry about keeping your dress clean or not walking too far in high heels!
4. Freedom! It gives freedom to both you and the photographer (me) to express themselves fully. One can be adventurous, experimental, or just plain silly!
After your photoshoot your images will be available to view in your own private online gallery, from which you can choose which ones you like best and purchase either digital files, prints or other finished products, depending on what package you’ve already paid for.
