Pre-Wedding Shoot / Sophie and Frank

Later this year I have the amazing job of photographing Sophie and Frank's wedding day at the stunning Cranberries Hideaway, but before that, we took a walk through Haldon Forest for a pre-wedding shoot.

Already quite popular in other countries, this seems to be becoming more popular here in the UK, and I can see why. It's an opportunity for the photographer and couple to get to know each other a little bit better, but also the chance to provide images for invitations and wedding galleries before the big day.

We were VERY lucky with the weather, with most of the week just after Christmas providing nothing but heavy rain. But we had a small window one morning to get out in the crisp winter air and capture some images. The challenge for a photographer like me, who likes a documentary style, is to provide 'posed' images but appearing natural. Rarely looking at camera and waiting for those right moments to click the shutter help with that, and I hope you agree...
