Pre Wedding and Engagement Photo Shoots with Nottingham Wedding Photographer

joel steph pre wedding photography nottinghamA pre wedding or engagement photo shoot is a fantastic way to get you and your partner ready for your official wedding photography. Some people are total naturals when it comes to having their photo taken, and really enjoy the process. But for others, it can mean feeling a little self conscious and uncomfortable! As a professional wedding photographer in Nottinghamshire and Mansfield, I have come across lots of people who are slightly uncomfortable at having the camera pointed at them. It can be even more daunting to have someone you don’t know very well pointing that camera at you. That’s why I think it can be a good idea to schedule in a little pre-wedding photography session so that you can get to know me, get comfy with me, and allow me to get a feel for what you hope to achieve from your wedding photography on your big day.

A Step Towards Natural Wedding Photography

Pre-wedding or engagement photography sessions are a great way to ease you in to your wedding photography. Establishing a rapport is really important in helping you to achieve natural, relaxed wedding photography that you can look back on with pride. My aim is to put you at ease in front of the camera so that you can fully relax and enjoy being photographed. It’s also the perfect opportunity to have some fun, play around with ideas you may have, and find out exactly what works best for you!

Pre-Wedding Engagement Photography Session for Steph and Joel

This is a great example of an engagement shoot that I was lucky enough to capture in some beautiful photographs of a bride and groom to be. We ventured into a wild flower project run by Donaster Council, and then moved on to Kings Wood outside Bawtry to capture the golden glow from the setting sun. I’m particularly fond of the shot of Steph and Joel bathed in sunlight surrounded by an array of beautiful, colourful flowers. I love the way that the evening sun illuminates their figures and intensifies the vibrancy of the flowers.
