Why have a Pre-Wedding Shoot? Booking a pre-wedding shoot gives clients the opportunity of seeing the photographer “in actio n” in a natural, relaxed and comfortable setting. It’s a great way of connecting with your photographer, and gives clients the opportunity of sharing any concerns that they may have. Let’s face it, not everyone is comfortable with having their photos taken, and many people admit that they really just don’t know how to relax and look “natural”. The photographer will give you some valuable advice and tips regarding posing and working with the camera and an ideal opportunity to get a feel for what to expect on the wedding day! I have noticed that couples automatically feel far more relaxed and confident and they are reassured that they are in “safe hands” and have hired a professional! The idea is that is supposed to be a very relaxed shoot. We can be creative and adventurous! Try something different, experiment a little and laugh a lot! Time is not limited, and there is no pressure. Remember, on the wedding day, the bridal couple are the centre of attention, and are being pulled in all directions. Time is also fairly limited on the wedding day, and most couples simply don’t want to leave their guests for too long when they go for the couple shoot with the photographer. Most couples are anxious to get back to the party, and enjoy every moment with their guests! Many couples use the photos that are taken at the Pre-Wedding Shoot to make their Save-the-date reminder. Other clients incorporate these images in the wedding stationery, for menus, table seating and even for the official invitation! Have a look at some of the photos that are on the GALLERY Page!
