What to expect from a pre-wedding shoot

"Lots of photographers will say that they are a fantastic way for you to get to know your supplier before the big day. Pre-wedding shoots canbe a great introduction to working together as the last thing you want is someone you've barely met popping a camera in your face on your wedding day. The majority of people find having their picture taken a less-than-natural experience, and one of my aims with a pre-shoot is for you to be at ease and to see me as a friend with a camera rather than paparazzi.

"That aside, what I feel pre-wedding shoots are really all about is the anticipation of the wedding day and celebrating that journey. Like couple shots on the actual day, these are often quiet, romantic moments in the midst of the beautiful craziness of it all. With so many aspects to plan and consider, a pre-shoot can be an excuse to spend some time together building new memories.

"Choose somewhere special for the location. It could be where you proposed, a view that you both love or a place you've been meaning to visit. Treat it like a date and enjoy your time together and most importantly, make it yours! Bring your dog, climb a mountain or toast with your favourite drinks.

"At de la Mare Creative, pre-shoots are included in all of our wedding options, and so there is no extra investment. If, however, you aren't quite ready to book your wedding photography – then you can always book a shoot and expect to have fun, spend time as a couple and take some beautiful photographs."
