Wedding photographer Bournemouth - creative and fun portrait photography

Creative and fun portrait photography – pre wedding photo shoot

I was delighted when Laura and Grant booked me as their wedding photographer. We arranged a pre wedding photo shoot the other day on the beach in Bournemouth in Dorset. It was a beautiful sunny day but rather windy.

They live in Enfield in North London, Laura requested a beach pre wedding photo shoot as it is something very different from what they are used to, it also provides a fantasitc backdrop for romantic couple portraits.

We met up at the lovely Reef Encounter and talked through all the wedding plans before we made our way to the beach. They brought their dog down for the trip, this was Mr Howard’s first visit to the beach so we were all curious as to how he would react. Very happy to say he had a wonderful time as you can see in the photos and I made another new friend.

Grant and I share a similar view on having our photo taken, its not our favourite activity. I gave him some reassurance that he should be himself and enjoy the walk on the beach with his lovely fiancé. After chatting and walking for a while, taking some candid reportage style portraits, Grant soon warmed up and I was able to get some really nice photos of them and Mr Howard, who kept insisting he was also part of the shoot.

I like to make people feel relaxed and have fun, to enjoy themselves – for me this gets the best results.

The wedding is being held in Chichester with the reception at the lovely Goodwood Hotel. Very much looking forward to documenting their wedding day in August.

Here are some of my favourite pre wedding photos:
