Over the past couple of years we have really enjoyed photographing some beautiful weddings, and sharing the most amazing day with such lovely couples - many of which have gone on to become good friends as well. We work in a very friendly and discrete way, and it's amazing how quickly the bride and groom feel so comfortable with us photographing them, and relax in front of the camera.
In 2013 we had our first ever engagement shoot, or pre-wedding shoot, with Stephen and Jasmine. It was such a great way to get to know them better, and for them to pose together for us, all at the setting of a stunning National Trust garden. As a result they had some beautiful photos that they displayed at their wedding reception, and could use for invites and change of address cards.
When it came to their wedding day, they already felt like good friends and were so at ease and comfortable with us, that the photography was natural and relaxed right from the first moment we arrived for Jasmine's bridal preparations. In fact, when we arrived at the church we'd never seen such a relaxed and confident groom in front of the camera!
Since Summer 2013, we have had a few pre-wedding shoots at beautiful locations around West Wiltshire and in every case, the photos we've taken on their wedding day have been even more spectacular than usual. It's the small things like knowing how to stand, or pose whilst in each others arms, without it looking stiff and uncomfortable, and in a lot of cases learning how to smile - to make sure you both look as happy as each other!
Learning these things before the big day just means that you are absolute naturals in front of the camera, right from the start of your day - and you can just concentrate on enjoying your wedding day!
With the big difference that it makes for both the couples and their wedding photos, we decided to give away a free engagement shoot with every wedding booking that is made at the moment. Just get in touch for more information on 01373 472880 or email: email@example.com
And we're looking forward to take some beautiful photos of some truly wonderful couples in 2015.
