Northumberland Wedding Photographer offers a Free Pre Wedding Shoot

Northumberland Wedding Photographer offers a Free Pre Wedding Shoot

I met up with this lovely couple Laura and Dale last Sunday. They are due to get married next summer and as we walked and talked in between capturing some images for them, I again came to realize what a lot of organising a couple has to do to  plan their big day. But Laura and Dane were well on it! They had their venue booked, flowers booked, cake tasted and booked. Laura still had her dress to buy but virtually done and photographer booked.....yeah!  And still over a year to go to their wedding. 

Here at Captured Moments Wedding Photography I offer all my clients a pre wedding shoot as part of my wedding photography packages.


I offer you a pre wedding shoot as it's as a great way for us to get to know each other better before your wedding day and for you to relax in front of the camera so you are more comfortable with the procedure on your special day.

Laura and Dane were very well organised and had their venue booked, which is the main concern for any couple on things to do. They had picked a fabulous venue in Lumley Castle and I cant wait to capture their day at such a fabulous location. 

The photographer was one of the last things on Lauras list apart from the dress but she still has plenty of time. It was great to meet up with them for their free pre wedding shoot included in all my packages. It is very easy going, just a chance to meet, get them used to the camera and hopefully more relaxed on their big day. As a photographer a relaxed client = better images. 

We spent about an hour or two at Alnwick Gardens to capture some images for them and during that time they walked me through their wedding plans.

The shoots are very informal and relaxed. We had a bit of fun and the whole atmosphere was relaxed but they got to experience a professional photographer taking their photo and get a feel for how I will work on their big day, giving them confidence and reassurance and hopefully more relaxed on the day.

Pre-wedding portrait sessions are really useful in so many ways, but most importantly they give the couple the opportunity to relax in front of the camera and to realise its actually quite an enjoyable experience and fun. It has the immense benefit of enhancing the confidence in couples before a wedding day, making them more relaxed in front of the camera and less stressed about it!

I had a great day but any couple should ask their wedding photographer if they do pre wedding shoots as it gives the couple and the photographer a chance to get to know each other a little better. I personally can't ever imagine photographing a clients wedding without doing a pre wedding shoot. It make the big day go so much smoother.

My style is to 'capture the moments' of the day in a journalistic style from the Bridal preparation with a glass of bubbly in your hand to your first dance as husband and wife. I still want to get those must have shots that mums and dads will want. But foremost I want people to be themselves and capture those moments , laughter with a few tears thrown in.


The pre wedding shoot can be at a mutually agreeable location, but I like to ideally take them at your venue as again it helps you feel more relaxed on your wedding day as you will already kind of done a photo rehearsal. I am pretty flexible with location and bottom line is I want you to leave with some fabulous images. The location itself can be personal to you. Somewhere you got engaged, the venue, or somewhere that means something special to the both of you or just an amazing location! Dont worry I'll find it with Google Maps.
