Pre-wedding shoots

Pre-wedding shoots have many benefits. You will start to relax in front of the camera on your wedding day because you will be more familiar with the photographer, and his style. Through out the pre shoot, the photographer will also learn what makes you smile and laugh, how you are comfortable posing together, and separately. 

Most people will not have had these types of images taken before and they will become part of your memories, along with your wedding photos.

The pre wedding shoot would take place at Tredegar House Newport this can take place at another location but a traveling fee is charged. Photos are purchased separately.
