I met with Monika and Lee the other night to run through their forthcoming wedding arrangements and we decided it would be a good idea to head off and have a pre-wedding shoot there and then.

It was a lovely evening and the sun was beginning to give that magical soft light (all you photographers out there will know what I mean!smiley) so we headed off to Pegwell Bay, near Ramsgate to fire off a few shots.

So what’s the point of a pre-wedding shoot (apart from hopefully getting some nice images!)?

Well it’s a good opportunity for the happy couple to get used to me and me to them. It’s extremely important to me that we have a good rapport otherwise the photos on the big day won’t be the best possible, which is what we all want.

Secondly it gets the couple used to relaxing in front of the camera. Come on – how many of us really enjoy posing for the camera unless you’re a supermodel on the catwalk? I can hear all the photographers running for cover from here smiley. But, with a little guidance and half an hour later the difference can be amazing.

Third, it gives people the chance to see that they can and do look good in photos.

Last, but not least any potential customers can really see if they like my style and want to hire me for the big day!

Anyway, if you want to have a look at we came up with have a look here.
