Pre-wedding photo shoot - Terri and Bruce Sept 08 - The Seafront Brighton

Terri and Bruce Pre-wedding photo shoot

I had a wonderful evening back in September on the sea front in Brighton with the lovely Terri and Bruce. I met up with Terri after I was recommended to her by her hairdresser Mark who's wedding I had photographed back in May.

They are a lovely couple and we had fun with iconic images of Brighton in the background - The West Pier, The Palace Pier, The sea etc!

Terri and Bruce were getting married at Due South along the seafront in Brighton. Due South is a lovely venue for food and the ambience in there is fantastic! It's well known as being one of Norman Cooks favourite resturants. They have a liscense for Civil Ceremonies and it's lovely to have the ceremony with the sea just outside the huge windows! It's a great venue for a intimate wedding or partnership!

Terri and Bruce were very pleased with the photos and felt confident that I would so a fab job on the day! Not only did they have the free benefit of having pre- wedding photography with me I also mount up a photo of their choice, which I took with me on their wedding day for their guests to sign. I will post the photos from the big day soon so watch this space! x

Gail and Evertons Engagement photo shoot 17/11/08

What a lovely winters day for a engagement photo shoot!

It was great to meet Everton & Gail and their lovely new baby Thea, mum & dad and nieces at Buxted Park in Uckfield their venue for the big day!

Pre- wedding chat and photos.....

It's great to meet up at the venue and take some photos as an engagement or pre-wedding photo shoot so that the couple can see the photo style prior to booking. It is important for each of us to have rapport as the photos reflect that relationship and they are able to relax in front of me.

I had a chat to them about the kind of photos that they would like posed or reportage and the options available in terms of presentation leather albums, suede albums, wedding story book.

I also introduced them to my new range of albums in the lace and retro croc range.

Also the length of time that they would like me for as I am flexible on how long I am with a couple - it's there day not mine! But I can advise on how long things take and often advise a couple to have a fake cake cut just after the couple photos if they are on a budget and therefore want to go for less photography time.

They wanted three hours of photography but could not decide which album to go for now withEverton liking the idea of having a big leather album a bit like his parents have. So I advised on a DVD option now with the option to upgrade to an album after the wedding thus cutting the costs before the wedding.

We were then ready to step outside to take photos...

It is lovely to get natural photos that show a couples love for each other.
