Whether you are engaged or just in love, there is never a better time than now to photograph your love.

Set in a natural surrounding of your choice; together we can create a relaxed set of images that document your love.



Why take up the offer of a pre wedding session?

The pre wedding shoot is a great way for us to get to know each other better before your wedding day. We will be spending an enormous amount of your wedding day together, so being able to laugh and get along is vital. We spend about an hour on location, talk through your wedding plans and have fun together. I get to experience you as a couple, who’s cheeky, playful or reserved, and you can experience a professional photographer taking your photo and get a feel for how I work, giving you confidence and reassurance. On your wedding day I am not a stranger but rather someone smiling with you, blending into the background.

In addition to capturing creative lifestyle and reportage portraits I will encourage moments and offer some direction, whilst putting you at ease and building a rapport. I always allow people to be themselves so that I can capture your true personalities. 

Location. Location. Location. Where to photograph your pre wedding session
Your engagement photography session can be at a variety of  locations. As a wedding photographer in the Cotswolds,  I get to photograph couples all over the area. I find myself lying down in fields, standing on bridges, or hanging off gates - the sky is pretty much the limit (I am not too keen on sky diving but I would be up for it if you want to do a sky diving session!)
 I like to offer some flexibility so we can choose a nice day for the engagement shoot. The location itself can be as personal to you as the wedding. Somewhere picturesque like a walk nearby, a National Trust property, an urban landscape or a special place like where you got engaged. If you have a special friend, such as a dog, horse or another animal that is loved, please feel free to bring them along. 

All the best images get creative and distinctive post production. An online photo story will be published to a private online gallery where you can share your pictures with family and friends. The photos are available download, order to print, or to create products such as save the date cards or signing boards for your wedding guests.

Overall we will have fun together and be prepared for your wedding photography.

You can then relax and enjoy the celebration.
