So, you’ve booked your venue and the big day is nearly organised. Your photographer mentions a pre-wedding shoot. Should you arrange one?
A resounding ‘yes’ would be my answer and here’s why…....
For some people, the prospect of having their photograph taken worries them. I know this because I am one of those people. I get it. Knowing that you will be photographed for the most important day of your life can be a daunting prospect.
Booking a pre-wedding shoot allows couples to relax in front of the camera, to get used to their chosen photographer and, most importantly, it helps them to enjoy their wedding day (which is what it’s all about when you think about it).
Importantly, if you’re relaxed on the day, then this will show in the photographs. For me, one of the most important aspects of my work is to capture natural magical moments. This can only happen when the subjects are relaxed, at ease and not worrying about the photographs.
Many of my couples have used their favourite photograph from the pre-wedding shoot to create a signing frame for all the guests to sign on their wedding day. This gives them a wonderful memory from their day to cherish forever.
Michelle Hardy Photography is currently offering a complimentary pre-wedding shoot worth £250 to all couples who book their wedding photography with her.
