Why? Well when you get at least an hour of uninterrupted time to photograph a lovely couple out in a cool location; Well there’s not much more I could ask for on the fun scale to be honest. It’s a really good opportunity to get to know my couple a little more before the big day, making them feel even more relaxed on the wedding day.
A Great Way to Get Comfortable
Pre-Wedding Shoots are a great opportunity to get really comfortable in front of the camera
I approach my couple portrait sessions much like I do my documentary wedding photography by being unobtrusive and capturing really fun, relaxed and unposed moments of you both. Although the pre-wedding shoot isn’t mandatory for couples, it can be really helpful with your wedding day portraits giving you both a chance to get acquainted with being photographed will make you feel a lot more comfortable.
Capturing Natural Moments
All you need to do is just cuddle and have fun.
I find it easy to read when people don’t feel comfortable in front of a camera, it’s one of my special powers! No really. Ok, well it’s not exactly a power but bit of a skill I’ve picked up and I can read this in a couple and this always shows in photographs. So I’ll do everything I can to make you feel relaxed when I’m taking pictures so you can really enjoy your time together and we can get some amazing photographs of you.
For me, portraits during your pre-wedding shoot are simply candid moments of your together and so I simply place you both in a spot that compliments you with good, creative light and I’ll just shoot away. It’s great fun for both of us and at some points you’ll forget I’m even there.
