Just as you close the door on one year, before you know it, another one is upon us and I’m off and running once again shooting a whole host of fabulous weddings and, let’s not forget, the odd pre-wedding shoot…and that is exactly what this year kicked off with, as I made the short trip up to Stirling for Jane & Nicky’s pre-shoot mid January.
I’d done a few shoots before around the castle grounds and it’s a great backdrop to shoot in…all cobbled streets and that and, did I mention, although you may have spotted it already…snow!!! Yep, the white stuff had been around for a day or two giving us that added dimension to the shots…as well as providing a few quirky moments towards the end of the shoot.
I do often get asked as to the benefits of pre-wedding shoots – will it make your wedding pictures better…not necessarily. Will it make you feel more comfortable getting your pictures taken come the big day…I think so. Will it get you used to being photographed…absolutely, and that’s a big plus. I see the pre-wedding shoot as a kind of dry run and a testing ground. We get to try out a few different types of shots and you can then tell me which ones you like and those that you’re not so keen on…and that’s a win-win come the big day :-). And, of course, you get to keep all the pictures from the shoot and also have the option of adding on a signing frame.
Jane & Nicky – a big thank you for choosing me to be your wedding photographer. Here’s just a few of my own favourites from the pre-shoot which I hope you all like.
