Pre - Wedding Portraits

The Importance of Pre - Wedding Portraits

With every wedding we photograph, we offer the additional service, for no extra charge, of a pre - wedding portrait session. This usually takes place aprox 4 - 6 months before a wedding, and is a relaxed and informal portrait session, at a local park or gardens. This should be a fun & happy photo session, and this will help the future bride and groom to be more relaxed in front of the camera on their wedding day. It will also help to introduce the couple to their wedding photographer. There can be nothing worse than having some one you have only spoken to over the phone when booking, turn up on the their special day to photograph their wedding, one of the most important days of your life.

It can also be a good time to look at your wedding venue, see the best locations for wedding day photographs, and to check on all your wedding day plans. Lots of pre - planning for your photography requirements help us to be prepared on your special day.

Here is a small selection of images we have taken over the last 5 or more years of pre - wedding portraits.
