Couple portraits of Nicola and Mike ahead of their November wedding at the Joshua Bradley here in Stockport.
The pre wed shoot … or as we like to call it …. A Couples Portrait Shoot
All of our couples have the opportunity to enjoy a pre wed shoot usually about 5 months before your wedding.
Couple Portraits – Nicola and Mike….. How it worked …
Your couple portraits day starts with coffee at our studio, before heading out for a relaxed photoshoot. What an exciting time being engaged and a really quite special occasion in which to be photographed.
The casual shoot is usually in the old town or country park, both only 10 minutes from our studio. We will guide you on how to look great in your wedding pictures etc – that way, you will be relaxed, natural and feel comfortable in front of the camera. For us it is a great team building exercise. A chance for us to get to know you both a little more and listen to all the preparation plans.
When the couple portraits shoot finishes we’ll return to the studio. This means Chris is in a convenient place to edit your pictures, whilst you both enjoy lunch for a couple of hours. After lunch, you will see the mornings pictures as a slideshow set to music with Claire. This format is exactly how you will view your wedding pictures for the very first time. There will be an opportunity too, for you both to look through our studio wedding albums and view plenty more of our work, where everything is to hand. Your couple portraits day will finish off with a chat about your wedding plans. An opportunity to ask questions and tap into our experience. Claire will discuss logistics, timings and family dynamics with you both. The detailed notes she will take, formulates our shooting plan for your big day.
So that is how it works … and here are a few pictures from Nicola and Mike’s fun couple portraits shoot. We had a great time and a good laugh test shooting a new urban route.
