So just before Andrew & Laura got married at the fabulous Hazel gap Barn at the beginning of November we all got the chance to meet up at Laura’s home village of Wiseton near Bawtry, Doncaster for a pre-wedding shoot. We spent a couple of hours walking around the village chatting about their plans for the big day. Here’s a little look into their relaxed pre-wedding session.

Pre-wedding shoots are a great way to address any preconceptions you might have of being photographed on your wedding day and a really cool fun way to get to know your photographer.

A pre-wedding shoot normally lasts between 2-3 hours depending on the time of year and location. It’s a great fun way to get to know your photographer after all your photographer is going to be spending virtually all day with you so it’s essential that you both feel comfortable with your chosen photographer.

I normally find that couples are a little bit more relaxed about being photographed on their wedding day after having a pre-wedding shoot.  At the end of every session, I often hear how much the couple enjoyed it and how much of a laugh it was and that’s exactly how it should be, it’s a fun time spent together making some really awesome portrait photos of you both before you get married.

Typically you will end up with anywhere between 60-140 photos from the session depending on the location and weather. You then pick your favourite photo from the session to be placed in the signing frame, which is then displayed at your venue for your guests to leave their best wishes.
