Charlotte & Pete's pre-wedding shoot

Congratulations Charlotte & Pete!

Although Charlotte & Pete got married a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd show you a selection of images from the pre-wedding shoot before you get to see anything from the big day!

We headed into Castlefield in Manchester city centre to with a view to shooting some cool, urban imagery. I was REALLY pleased with the results as were Charlotte and Pete.

It's quite daunting for a couple to be stood in front of the lens for the first time, which is the main reason that all my weddings are preceded by this shoot. It gives the couple a chance to experience what being photographed feels like and it gives me the opportunity to see how they react to certain situations, how relaxed they are and if they're not relaxed, work on the best ways to try and put them at ease.

As it happens, Charlotte and Pete were complete naturals from the word go, enjoyed their experience and so looked forward to the photography part of their wedding day.

As far as possible, I try and shoot couples as naturally as possible, giving them as little direction as possible - usually it's as simple as me saying "right, just wander off over there!"

As you can see, Charlotte and Pete looked great on the shots from the pre-wed shoot - just wait until you see the wedding coverage! We got some great stuff and I'll be posting some of the highlights over the next few weeks!
