Wedding Photography at The Vu : Laura & Dean

For those of you that follow my blog regularly (you know who you are :-)), then you’ll recall that in my last post I was going on about how much of a lottery March weddings can be in terms of the weather, with my last wedding before this being very wet and windy. Well, jump ahead a week or two, look below and you’ll see exactly what we got for Laura & Dean’s big day at The Vu…glorious sunshine and, from recollection, not too chilly either – what is it they say about March…”comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb”…spot on!

To say I’ve shot quite a few weddings at The Vu would kind of be an understatement – in fact, last year I was there eight times and the year before at least six, perhaps even seven. So, strange that it was then that this year Laura & Dean’s day was in fact my only visit there to date, although I am back again for my very last wedding of the year on the 30th December – funny how things go sometimes!

    Pre-Wedding Shoot at Beecraigs Country Park
    Laura & Dean

    So guys, a couple of weeks ago, I was out and about on my second pre-wedding shoot of the year with Laura & Dean at a location that I’ve used a few times now for these shoots, Beecraigs Country Park. The guys brought along their dog, Lola and, I know the old saying goes never work with children or animals, well, this time was the exception to the rule with Lola behaving exceptionally well and adding that little extra to the shots every now and then.

    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.
