In just a couple weeks this pair will be ‘getting hitched’ in Oxford, ahead of their upcoming wedding celebrations we caught up in London for a coffee and to shoot a few frames in a nearby park. The main aim of catching up and shooting a few frames somewhere in preparation for the wedding day is for us to learn a little about each other. They can both get used to how I shoot and document moments, whilst I learn about their personalities and how they are together – and for sure this pair are a bundle of laughs. Simply cannot wait to start photographing their day very soon. :)
Of course as well as the social parts of getting to know each other, we also have the bonus of creating a few pictures for them to keep and look over as they approach their wedding day. It always such a well worth exercise whether you call it an engagement shoot, a pre wedding shoot or simply some time getting to know each other.
