Happy Easter Monday everyone! The rain has taken over today so I have retreated back into our lounge, in front of the fire. Netflix is on (of course!) and I thought I would share with you some photos from this pre-wedding shoot I did last weekend. Emma + James booked me last year for their upcoming wedding this month (April!) and Emma was really keen to have a shoot before the wedding so that they could have some practise being in front of the camera. I would totally recommend these shoots to all my couples! They are great fun, super relaxed and give us a chance to get to know each other better before the big day. They also help build trust between you and I, as you get a feel for how I work and what it’s like to be photographed by me. The relationship it allows us to build allows you to truly relax during your wedding and will allow for more connection when we spend time taking those romantic, personal portrait photos of just the two of you.
Emma + James have spent lots of time walking along the beach at Lee on the Solent and so it seemed fitting to them to have it as the setting for their pre-wedding shoot. I loved that the location meant something to them, and enjoyed hearing stories about their times visiting with James’ family. I think Emma was a little nervous about the shoot but they were both absolute naturals and so utterly lovely (and in love!) and so it felt completely natural photographing them. The weather almost rained the shoot off! But we are so glad we went ahead, because despite the drizzle we were gifted with some beautiful low fog over the sea! It was so nice to spend some time with them before the wedding, and now I feel even more exited for their celebrations at the end of this month.
