Douglas & Rebecca Pre-Wed

I met up with Douglas and Rebecca at Plessey Woods Country Park in Northumberland, UK for their pre-wed shoot. Their wedding is in October at Matfen Hall, which is an amazing venue in stunning countryside. Stacey and I are really looking forward to photographing their big day. Pre-Wed shoots are a good chance to get to know each other better and to discuss likes and dislikes ahead of the wedding, but most importantly of all it helps to put everyone at ease and results in fantastic photos on the day.

Most photographers have the same aim as ourselves, which is to delight their clients and it should go without saying that they would want to produce images that are personal, stylish and emotive. We love seeing people’s reactions when they view their photographs for the first time, but it is just as important to ensure that it will become a joyous feeling for years to come. Every wedding is special and every one we shoot is an honour to be a part of. There will be opportunities to be creatively bold and daring, and there will be times when simplicity should be the main driver. We will bring with me a bag of ideas, with space for new ones supplied by you the client. We love to create a set of pictures that tell the story of a wonderful wedding, evoke the magic of the day and capture the happiness it brings.

We have a sense of humour and an unobtrusive informal approach that will make you feel at ease being the centre of attention. Although we are influenced by current styles and fashions in wedding photography what we do on a wedding day is a reaction to you and what happens on your big day.

We set myself high standards and we are passionate about taking great images however in my opinion the best photos come from people who are not aware they are being photographed. We therefore like to work in a reportage style and enjoy mixing in with your guests wherever possible; we find this really helps to capture the intimate moments and genuine happiness of your family and friends as they are at their most relaxed. We will recommend shots that we trust you will like, however if you have any specific ideas then we will make sure that we accommodate your wishes.
