Pre Wedding Shoot? What’s the point?

A Pre Wedding Shoot is an important step to ensuring that you have the most personal and flattering wedding pictures possible.

Your Pre Wedding Shoot can be held wherever you want it, and a lot of people suggest doing it at their actual wedding venue.  Although on the face of it, this seems like the natural and obvious place, but unless you really want this, we’d advise to do it elsewhere.

Why? Well, you’ll get loads of shots in various places, and if your venue has limited and obvious places to shoot, when you get your eventual wedding pictures back, you’ll end up with similar shots in similar places …. with the only difference being the close you’re wearing!  It potentially ruins the wow factor of your finished wedding album, and you really wouldn’t want that would you?

Living in Yorkshire, there are a wealth of places to do a Pre Wedding Shoot.  Temple Newsam is an obvious favourite of ours, but they can be done anywhere where’s there’s a little bit of space, and ideal something green!  That said, they can also be done in city centre or anywhere else where you’re happy being photographed. We’re also happy to travel within a 50 mile radius of Wakefield, so if you want it doing in the Dales, the Peak District, North York Moors or simply somewhere that is special to you as a couple, it’s really no problem, so just ask us.

During your Pre Wedding Shoot, we’ll teach you something very important ….. what NOT to do in your pictures!  We suggest things that might make you look or feel better, but we never get you pulling ridiculous poses, or peeping out from behind trees!  We tease out of you the things you’d normally do, and again, this is why your shots look so natural; you’re photographed being yourself.

Afterwards, I send across as many shots as I can edit, and they’re yours to keep!  You’ll receive both high resolution images (for printing) and Web friendly versions (for Facebook and emailing).  We include as many as possible, so you can see how you come across to the camera by doing one thing or another. That way YOU can decide how you want to come across on your wedding pictures, again, this is why our work is so natural.

If you book our Infinity package, you get all of this included, but if you’re not an ILTO client, you can still book a pre-wedding session with us, so check out our Packages page for more details.
