Adam and Fergus were a little bit hesitant about having a pre-wedding shoot, but after explaining why we do them, they agreed that it sounded like a good idea, and later Adam told me that they “thoroughly enjoyed the experience”. So, why do we do them?
We wholeheartedly believe it’s a really good idea to get yourselves in front of the camera with us before your wedding day. It may well be the first time you’ve had professional photos taken, so why not have a practice session with us before the big day? Many couples worry about having their photo taken, and this really helps to take all of those nerves away…in fact, you might even realise how much fun it can be! We keep things really relaxed, go for a coffee and a good chat first, and then have a wander for an hour or so with the two of you.
It’s also a really great bonding experience for the four of us; we all get to know eachother a little better, which let’s face it, has to help when we’ll be around for a lot of the time on your wedding day!
In Adam and Fergus’ case, they wanted to keep things fairly natural and relaxed, with nothing too posed, which of course fits in well with our style. So after a coffee and some lovely cake in Baltzersen’s, plus a good chat, we took a few photos as we headed down to one of their favourite places, Valley Gardens in Harrogate.
Here are just a few images from their shoot. We’re really looking forward to their wedding this weekend at East Riddlesden Hall…more coming soon!
