Melanie and Rock are due to be married in just a few weeks in one of the beautiful colleges in Cambridge. As a photographer being able to photograph in and around the colleges is always amazing; The combination of historic buildings, the river backdrop and the opportunity to wander along the famous ‘Backs’ never ceases to delight. Combine that with a very stylish couple for a perfect pre-wedding photography or engagement shoot
I was particularly delighted that Melanie and Rock chose me as their photographer. Both Melanie and Rock are professional creative people and whilst it is always fantastic when anyone chooses you to photograph their day it is a particular compliment when another creative person chooses your work above all others – after all we creative types are very discerning and have a keen eye for what is technically and artistically ‘good’! For me it ranks pretty high on the list of professional compliments!
As usual the essence of the shoot is for a couple to relax, enjoy and get some advice from me on the basics how to stand and generally how to be relaxed enough to interact with each other naturally – I find this part usually helps couples come the day, if they can remember any of it!!
I had no such qualms about Melanie and Rock being able to relax – naturally comfortable with one another they were able to interact and let me get on with getting some fantastic images (with a particularly glamorous edge as Melanie had just had a pre-wedding hair and make up trial)
These pre-wedding photography sessions are becoming more popular and in some cultures such as in the Middle and Far East it is as important as the Wedding Day itself. It is a day in which you can relax with one another and a great excuse to either dress up or dress down according to your tastes. Pared down glamour is always popular but I must admit I do love photographing couples who have decided to go for full on glamour.
This year I am celebrating all things pre-wedding photography by offering destination photo-shoots in Florence, Italy. This is a stunning opportunity to have a destination photography shoot around the stunning renaissance city of Florence, home to some of the most magnificent architecture and breathtakingly romantic views – the view from Piazzale Michelangelo at sunset looking down on the Ponte Vecchio must surely be one of the most romantic views you should experience at least once in a life time…..
There are two exclusive weeks this summer with the first one not far away in June. Contact me on 0870 626 5200 or e-mail me at [email protected] to find out more and reserve your place or visit Pre Wedding Photography section on the website for more information.
