DARTMOOR PRE-WEDDING SHOOT - Why are pre-wedding shoots a great idea?
Updated: Jun 9
I thought I would write a quick blog on why I love doing pre-wedding and engagement shoots and why they are so beneficial for the couple. I will also post some photos from my latest pre-wedding shoot to give you an idea on what to expect. I offer a free pre-wedding shoot with my full day package.
So why are they a good idea?
The main reason I like to do them is because of how much they actually help on the big day.
We all know weddings are a big deal - months and months of planning, lots of excitement building up - so of course when the day arrives, there is going to be some expected nerves. Nerves made worse when some person you hardly know turns up with a big camera and starts taking photos of you. So, this is why I love pre-wedding shoots. After getting to know me and seeing the way I work for an hour, it helps to calm those nerves for you. You've also had your pre-wedding shoot album and are now (hopefully!) excited to see what photos I can capture on your day!
It helps me to get an idea of what kind of couple you are. I always make it my goal to capture what the couple are really like, rather than posing in a way you feel awkward and isn't natural for you. So pre-wedding shoots gives me a good head start before the wedding.
They are also great for us to have long chat about your wedding, discuss any things you particularly want or don't. By the end of it, we will all know each other a lot better.
I'm going to pop some photos in from my last pre-wedding shoot so you can see what to expect, also here is a lovely review Christina & Aaron left me about the shoot.
"We recently had our pre-wedding photoshoot with Toby and it was awesome. My partner and I were pretty nervous going into it, as we didn't know what to expect, but as soon as we met with Toby to start shooting we were made to feel very comfortable and the overall experience was incredible. Also, Toby was an absolute star with us on the day. He knew exactly what to capture and had a super quick eye for picking up cool photo spots. Toby also turned the photos around in quick time and they are perfect, more than anything we could ever imagine. We honestly can't wait for Toby to capture our wedding! So so happy we chose Toby to photograph our special day!"
