Pre-Wedding Shoots



  • One to two hours
  • In a favourite or special location in Manchester or close by
  • Including 10 digital images with printing rights
  • Presented on an online password-protected gallery

These sessions are a great way to get used to the weird situation of having somebody point a camera in your face and so valuable to help you settle into being photographed. You’ll soon become oblivious to my shutter!



Your wedding day will go by so quickly. Even with 20 minutes to do some portraits together alone, your minds will (rightly) be full of the momentousness of the day, and the guests that you want to get back to. It’s not the easiest of circumstances to be relaxed and at ease if it is your first time being photographed professionally.

2. We’ll get to know each other better

Photography is a lot about connection and the more you feel you know me, and vice versa, the better and more real your pictures will be on the wedding day. My aim for the session is for you to feel like you, to have fun and enjoy yourselves. Couples say it turns out to be a far more valuable and enjoyable experience than they imagined it could be.

3. A chance to get everyday photos

Your wedding day outfits will, I’m sure, be very special, but there is something significant about having a record of the preparation time too – those ordinary, but life-changing days leading up to your wedding. You’ll come away from this session with some beautiful natural photos that you can use on invitations or your wedding website. I can even arrange for a large mounted print for your guests to sign.
