Pre-wedding shoots

Pre-Wedding Shoot | Jon & Beth

Some of you might recognise Beth. We’ve worked together on a few shoots, including this vintage inspired editorial shoot at Chicheley Hall and a Great Gatsby styled shoot at Boughton House, so I was thrilled when she got in touch to book her wedding photography. Beth and her beau, Jon, are a beautiful couple inside…

Engagement photos | Pat & Liz

Although it was bright and sunny, it was a bit on the chilly side when I met with Pat and Liz for their pre-wedding shoot. But the good thing about these shoots is that there’s lots of cuddling close so it’s easy to keep warm! Here are some of my favourites… Save

Engagement photos | Sam & Rich

One of the things I love about pre-wedding shoots is the chance to catch up with my clients. It was about a year since I met with Rich and Sam, for a consultation before they booked their wedding photography, so their wedding plans had really come together when we met up a few weeks ago.…

Engagement photos | Rich & Nadine

It was super cold and windy on the day of Rich and Nadine’s pre-wedding shoot so we took shelter in the barn for a lot of their photos. This was no hardship. I could shoot in there all day and still find things to do the next day. Here are some of my favourites.

Engagement photos | Tom & Maria

Life on the farm has been fun lately. April is the time that I do most of the year’s pre-wedding shoots and planning meetings so that we can give our clients’ weddings our full attention once the season starts fully. So not only has it been lovely to spend time getting to know this year’s…

Engagement photos | Fahad & Rachael

We lucked out with a gorgeous sunny morning for Fahad and Rachael’s pre-wedding shoot. Like most couples, Fahad and Rachael were a bit nervous about being photographed but they did really well and soon relaxed. We did the shoot around the farm at Lamport Manor where our office is. It’s not really about the location…

Engagement photos | Darren & Alex

Darren and Alex were our first clients to have their pre-wedding shoot on the farm at Lamport Manor where we’re based. We moved into an office space there last summer but by that time we’d done all our pre-wedding shoots for the year so it seemed like an eternity to wait with all those great backgrounds…

Pre-wedding shoot | Dan & Becky

One question people often have about a pre-wedding shoot is what’s the point? If the formal photos are such a small part of our wedding photography why do we need to spend an hour taking more before the wedding? The biggest reason is to save time on your wedding day. I think your wedding portraits…

Pre-wedding shoot | Dale & Natalia

As much as I love documentary wedding photography, I think it’s important to have some beautiful portraits of the two of you on your wedding day as well. The amount of time we spend on them is entirely up to you and will depend on what you want to get out of your photos and…

Pre-wedding shoot | Jim & Fliss

This spring has been fully booked with pre-wedding shoots so I’ve been spending lots of time out in the fresh air lately. It’s been good for the soul after what seemed like an endless winter at my desk. I’ve been in awe at how much and how quickly the landscape has changed around us as…

Pre-wedding shoot | Danny & Zoe

Like any couple, Danny and Zoe were nervous as we began their pre-wedding shoot but it’s one of those things where the not knowing what to expect is far more scary than the actual event. I love looking through the photos afterwards because you can see how nervous a couple is in their first few…

Pre-wedding shoot | Tom & Kirsty

Tom and Kirsty did the coordinated outfit thing perfectly for their pre-wedding shoot. Complementary or contrasting colours make such a difference to the end result. The other big consideration is to wear something that makes you feel confident. If you feel good you’re part way there to looking relaxed in your photos.

Pre-wedding shoot | Stewart & Laura at Boughton House

I can’t think of a much better working afternoon than one spent in the sunshine at Boughton House taking photos and getting excited about a wedding. Stewart and Laura are the loveliest and funniest couple going. I enjoyed every moment of their pre-wedding shoot. Laura had her wedding make-up trial for the shoot to see…

Pre-wedding shoot | Rob & Anna

It’s hard to imagine someone as sweet as Anna as a sourpuss but she said she was so nervous about having her photos taken that by the time the morning of her and Rob’s pre-wedding shoot came around she was in meltdown mode! Nerves are normal so having a pre-wedding shoot is a great thing…

Pre-wedding shoot | Stuart & Charlotte

Stuart & Charlotte got engaged in the Dubai desert, which was a complete surprise for Charlotte. Stuart arrived secretly on camel back; heart racing, wearing traditional robes, clutching a diamond ring and given away only by his trainers poking out from under the robes! Charlotte said yes, obvs. Six planning packed weeks later, almost a…

Pre-wedding shoot | Tom & Jo

All you need to bring to a pre-wedding shoot is the love and an open mind. Tom & Jo did pretty well at that. Like most couples they had never had professional photos taken and were a bit nervous before we started but they soon eased into it and just enjoyed the moment. As always…
