We’ve always offered our clients a pre-wedding shoot (also known as an engagement or e-shoot). It’s a great, fun way for us to get to know our couples and for couples to enjoy the experience of being photographed together. It’ll often be the first time they’ve done this, so naturally some start a little nervous and unsure of what to expect – but by the end of the short session, they’re loving it.
They’re delighted with the resulting pictures and often give prints as gifts to family or themselves! Many use an image from this shoot as part of their wedding stationery or as a ‘Signature Frame’ for all of their wedding guests to sign with messages of love.
The best result though is that on their wedding day they know that they can relax and enjoy themselves, safe in the knowledge that we’ll be capturing fun, natural and relaxed pictures.
Alex and Dan are being married later this month. We’d met them both previously when we photographed Alex’s sister’s wedding. Now it’s their turn! We had a fun afternoon with them, chatting over coffee and hearing all about Alex & Dan’s plans for their wedding day. We then all went for a walk around the grounds at our studio and onto a beach, which holds great significance and fond memories for both of them.
Alex’s flawless makeup is by Lucy Gourlay of LG Makeup. Here are a few of the resulting pictures….
