Pre-Wedding & Engagement Photoshoot
I offer a variety of wedding photography services, including pre-wedding and engagement photoshoots. These can take place in my private studio or at a location of your choice.
My style and approach
Ialways strive to know my couples who I will be photographing as I want to know what is important to you, your individual style, and what you care the most about. When it comes to wedding photography I aim to look at the event through your eyes. I often shoot in a creative yet candid documentary style, blending in and unobtrusively recording the day as it unfolds, capturing beautiful people and their beautiful emotions. During your wedding ceremony and beyond, I see and record all the small but meaningful details as well as the big moments. When your guests are enjoying their drinks, we can escape to have some time on our own to capture a few romantic moments. For the rest of the time though, I am recording the beauty of your wedding day love story as it happens for you to cherish. After all, memories may fade but the photographs stay bright and vibrant forever more.
It all starts with a consultation?
No matter how big or small you want your wedding to be, or how significant you want your wedding photographer’s part to be played, it all starts with a pre-wedding consultation. These are usually held in my private dedicated photography studio in Poole where we can talk openly about the style you have in mind over a cuppa and some biscuits.
Pre-wedding photos in my studio
O n location or in the studio – it is totally up to you. My studio is ideal for a pre-wedding or engagement photoshoot as we don’t need to worry about any additional pressures of whatever an on location session may entail. Once I had a dog run past one of my engagement couples on the beach. Although the dog made us laugh at the time, she didn’t make the final cut of the photos!
Why a pre-wedding
1/ it’s your last professional session before you are a married couple
2/ it allows us to get to know each other better so that I am not a stranger on your wedding day
3/ it gives you the opportunity to practice being in the front of the camera
