PRE WEDDING SHOOTS & ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY
Fun & romantic couples portraits
So what is involved in a pre wedding shoot or engagement shoot?
Pre wedding shoot
When you book me as your wedding photographer I offer you a pre wedding shoot as part of my wedding photography packages.
Why do you offer a pre wedding shoot?
The pre wedding shoot is offered as a great way for us to get to know each other better before your wedding day. We spend about an hour on location, talk through your wedding plans and have fun together. I get to experience you as a couple, who’s cheeky, playful or reserved, and you can experience a professional photographer taking your photo and get a feel for how I work, giving you confidence and reassurance. Then on your wedding day I am more of a friend that’s spending the day with you, blending into the background.
In addition to capturing creative lifestyle and reportage portraits I will encourage moments and offer some direction, whilst putting you at ease and building a rapport. As a social photographer and wedding photojournalist I always allow people to be themselves so that I can capture your true personalties.
What location is used for the pre wedding photography?
The pre wedding photography can be at any location, this is usually around my home area within Dorset however I can travel further by arrangement. I like to offer some flexibility so we can choose a nice day for the shoot. The location itself can be as personal to you as the wedding, somewhere picturesque like the beach or forest, an urban landscape or a special place like where you got engaged.
All the best images get creative and distinctive post production. An online photo story will be published which you can share with family and friends. The photos are available to order as digital negatives or prints which are perfect for save the date cards and made into a signing board for your wedding guests.
Overall we will have fun together and be prepared for your wedding day. You can relax and enjoy the celebration.
