All our wedding packages include a free pre-wedding shoot. This may seem crazy to many couples as other photographers in The Lake District and Cumbria charge between £150 to £300 for this.
This is where we are different. We are playing a very important role in one of the most important days of your life, if not THE most important day of your life. Mike wants you to feel comfortable in front of the camera on your wedding day, he wants you to feel comfortable with him during your wedding day. Mike will get the best photographs if you feel at ease and relaxed whilst having your photographs taken. The best way to do this is to get to know each other in a relaxed way on a fun, informal photo shoot. We also feel it is important to know a bit more about you before your wedding day, it is great to know your interests and hobbies. It is also good to see your chemistry before your wedding, some couples are very affectionate and others not so. There is nothing worse than looking at photographs of yourselves in an uncomfortable pose which does not tell us about you as a couple, just the standard pose the photographer does as he/she does not know how you interact with each other. You also get someone you feel comfortable and familiar with on your wedding day. Do you really want someone you have never met, or only met briefly at a wedding fayre or initial meeting, in the room with you whilst you are getting ready for the most important event of your life? We like you to feel comfortable throughout your wedding and pride ourselves on the great relationship we have with all of our couples.
You also get some photographs of yourself as a couple in a pretty location of your choice from your pre-wedding shoot. These photographs will be something for you to look back on to remember the time before you got married, a relaxed time in the madness of planning a wedding. Pre-wedding shoots don’t necessarily have to be only you as a couple, if you have children or a dog they are welcome to come along for a family shoot, we like to meet the people who make you who you are.
Our pre-wedding shoots can be in a location of your choice (within a reasonable distance), previous locations include where a couple got engaged, a where a couple had their first few dates and places which play an important role to you as a couple. Mike has been up fells with couples, on the side of many lakes, on beaches, on farms and visited many waterfalls.
We love to keep in touch after your wedding too, hearing about how your lives progress, your babies, your new homes and new jobs.
