I had a very enjoyable pre-wedding shoot with Anika and Owen in Bishop Auckland. Joining us were their sons Zachary and Luke. It is an excellent way to get to know each other and discuss the details of the upcoming wedding. We met at Owen’s parents house and we stayed in the direct vicinity of it and got some nice shots. One of the other advantages of a pre-wedding shoot is that the couple can see what I am capable of as a photographer and it can relax them regarding the photography on their wedding day. Granted, they will have seen my work online but with them as a subject it makes it more ‘real’.
