What is a pre wedding shoot/where do we go and what do we wear?

April 4th, 2016 by

A pre wedding shoot is a great opportunity for us to get to know each better, for me to see how much help you need to try and feel natural in front of the camera and for you both to see how I work.  It can be added onto your package, the is cost £250 for someone who has booked me for their wedding and £300 for a shoot if you haven’t booked me. It includes an hour shoot to a location of your choice within a 30 miles radius of Aberdeen city centre.  The images are high res with no watermark and are supplied on a gallery that you can download.

I Have loads of suggestions for pre wedding shoot locations and am happy to help you choose.  If you have a favourite walk/castle/place that you go together it can be lovely to get some shots there.  If you have a dog take it along!  If you have children take them along too!  As for clothing, it does depend on the location.  I love a pop of colour in a forest, if you wear green you will disappear!  Busy patterns can be distracting and if it’s a windy day, don’t wear a floaty dress as you will spend the whole shoot holding it down!

  • We hired Donna through our wedding planner and since it was a destination wedding we did not meet prior to the day of our wedding - which made me nervous. However, I shouldn't have been - Donna was just INCREDIBLE! Professional, lovely and she even put up with my crazy family (which is like herding cats) and the photos which we received are STUNNING. I highly recommend her for your wedding

The detail in my dress, shoes, jewellery, flowers everything is perfect! You are very special at what you do should be so proud of yourself! x
