The last couple of weeks have seen me busy with "pre wedding" shoots for clients that are getting married between now and christmas.
As I tell anyone that might be interested in me photographing their wedding, I am more than happy to undertake a shoot prior to the wedding for those that might feel it would be of benefit. For me, the images from these shoots are not as important as the shoot itself. The shoots really help me to get to know the people I am working for (sometimes I haven't met the couple before hand, having just spoken via email). They also really help couples that might feel a little awkward in front of a camera to address any feelings of embarrassment they may have (many of the people I work for, like me, do not like being photographed), as well as to get used to me. Consequently, my fee includes for a shoot of this nature for anyone that thinks it may be of benefit.
Here are a few images from shoots with Amy and Nick, Ben and Liz, Siobhan and Andrew & Kerry and Matt… all of whom get married in the next few weeks.
