Tina & Richard - Get To Know You Shoot
See older blogs in my
A few weeks ago here in Warwickshire, I caught up with Tina & Richard for their 'Get To Know You Shoot'. We arranged to meet up one Sunday morning, at Newbold Comyn in Leamington Spa, to start the process of talking through their wedding day - and any thoughts they had on being photographed. It's not uncommon for me as a wedding photographer to meet people who are nervous about being stood in front of a camera. In fact I believe it's perfectly normal, so it's my job to help them become a bit more comfortable with it before their wedding day.
The good news is that there are many different ways of helping out, and as you can see here Tina & Richard soon relaxed into this informal process.
Don't they look great? Here are just a few more images from that short session.
That's quite a transformation from being nervous in front of camera, to looking much more relaxed. It's a great way of introducing photography to people before the wedding day itself. This means that couples are more used to being captured, plus it makes the process much quicker on the day. Tina & Richard's wedding has taken place already at Wethele Manor, and one of the final shots at the end of the evening was a real highlight. I'd been keeping an eye on the late evening sky, and quickly sprung into action to see if Tina & Richard could spare a few seconds just outside of the marquee. They were up for the idea, so I swiftly got my camera settings sorted and placed them in the frame. They did the rest in terms of standing together and beaming away.......
How cool is that? Yes, the sky makes the picture, but don't Tina & Richard look amazing on their wedding day? I'm coming to the end of the processing from their wedding, and can't wait to hand the images over to them shortly. Feel free to share away on social media. If you have any questions about 'Get To Know You Shoots' or photography on a wedding day then please contact me via this website. Have a great weekend everyone.Martin.
