Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot in Jesmond Dene

A pre-wedding photo shoot can be a great idea. Especially if you aren't keen on having your photo taken. I know that sounds like a contradiction, but a lot of people haven't had their portrait taken professionally so it can seem quite daunting.

This is why a photo shoot before the big day can help. You get to see how I work, and it's also another chance for us to meet up. Usually, the most number of times I see my couples before the wedding is twice but it is nice to see you more often. After all, I'm going to be present for most of your special day!

The couple in the following photos weren't keen on having their photo taken so I suggested a photo shoot, free of charge. We were also thinking of taking some photos on the wedding day at Jesmond Dene so this seemed to be the perfect choice of location. The couple had also requested a signing board so we needed a photo to put in the frame while guests were signing the mount. The photo they chose, we replicated on the wedding day to ultimately replace the pre-wedding shoot photo.

So, a sunny July day in Jesmond Dene.

A bit of posing, mixed in with "stand over here and chat amongst yourselves."

Now, I thought they'd choose this shot below for their frame, but no. They fancy having this one larger!

Wedding day slightly pulled back to get the wedding ring in and the detail on the dress.

So, now prepared for posing on the big day. Although it is different when you're dressing up looking fabulous in your finery!

The comment from the groom while we were arranging a day to do the pre-wedding shoot was "...if you can convince me to be in the pictures!"

The comment I got after the wedding day was "We've had some really nice comments from everyone about you, we're so pleased you were able to be with us on our wedding. And you made it painless for both of us."

If you wanted to have a photo shoot before you booked your wedding photography, you would pay a location fee. However, if you were to go on and book me as your photographer, I would deduct that fee from your package price.

Thank you for looking and if you liked this post, please consider sharing it.
