We have a guest blogger this week with the content written by our premium supplier  Danielle Boxall Photography and it’s all about the Pre Shoot. Lets read about all the top tips and advice.

“So you’re looking for a wedding photographer and you’ve found one with a pre-shoot included?, I bet you asked to take the pre-shoot out to reduce the cost as you’re not really that bothered about it and you want to keep within budget. Well don’t!! the pre-shoot, engagement shoot whatever it’s referred as is a useful tool for us and you. So what, you had a long engagement, you class yourself as old or the groom (mostly) doesn’t like having his photo taken and the football is more than likely on when your trying to sort this out. You’re going to have the photographer with you for a minimum of 8 hours on your wedding day they are going to see you in your undies!!!. Why wouldn’t you take an hour or so somewhere you love to go, have a drink and have fun with your photographer. Is it really that bad?”

So we asked Danielle, why is it you love to do a pre shoot?

The Reply? because ” I love them “

Here are Danielle’s top tips :

Danielle says ;

  1. I get to see how you react to the camera, what you like, don’t like.
  2. You get to see how you look and you can remember this for your big day.
  3. You need to build a relationship with your photographer to get the best out of your photos as we pick up on the smallest details, looks and reaction.
  4. A lot of people associate having your picture taken is automatically a formal affair, take that thought and burn it. I hate formal.
  5. The right photographer can make you look amazing just by taking your photo from a different angle in awesome light.
  6. You also get to keep these photos, they can be gifts for family
  7. . Make the most of what you have chosen as you only have the once or twice to have this opportunity.

So what left to say then, make it happen peeps.

Much love,
