I am often asked if having a pre-wedding shoot or engagement shoot is a good way to help get over some of the nerves of being in front of the camera for your wedding day. There is no simple answer to this as everyone is different but the information I will give you should hales you make a more informed choice.
If you absolutely hate having your photo taken, I mean you leave an event because someone has brought a camera sort of hate then I would suggest that you are not likely to be turned in one pre-wedding shoot. My suggestion is that this may take several occasions and a very experienced professional. A professional will have ways to work with this and ways to capture your wedding with you in it without making you feel bad.
If you are like Kelly and Mike and are not a fan of having your photo taken but would like to feel more confidant on your wedding day and make sure that you are the most of your photography on your wedding day then this is absolutely the opportunity to have a pre-wedding shoot.
During my pre-wedding shoots we go through some of my posing top tips, some of the things i will ask of you on your wedding day. I will also get an opportunity to see how you are as a couple, for example are you hopeless romantics are you silly and fun or are you quiet and reserved?
What happens on the pre-wedding shoot is really simple, we will walk and talk around the area you have chosen for the session and take photos along the way. The pace is relaxed and easy and not rushed. Here are some of the images we took on Kelly & Mike’s shoot in the area around St.Paul’s Cathedral in London.
