Here is a small selection of my favourite portrait photographs from some pre wedding photography in West London on a very sunny Saturday morning at Kew Gardens.
The weather was ideal for this style of pre wedding photo shoot; we were aiming for very simple, natural and relaxed portrait photography. The sun allowed us to photograph under the cover of various plants and branches where the light was perfect.
These pre wedding photography shoots, held prior to a wedding, are aimed at getting some practice in before the big day. This means that we can be very efficient with bride and groom photography during the wedding reception which is at Kew; this is essential for wedding photographers of a large and chaotic Chinese wedding!
Sharom and Mike were really up for a laugh which always helps too! These shoots are great for wedding couples who would like to get used to the camera, its also a great chance to meet your wedding photographer. Familiarity makes such a difference, it also gives couples a selection of beautiful portrait photographs to choose from which can then be displayed using a variety of products.
Sharom and Mike's Chinese wedding is next month; with the wedding ceremony in Surrey, then back to Kew Gardens for the first part of the wedding reception and then across to Chinatown for the evening reception.
It will be a busy day and no doubt provide some great narrative for my documentary wedding photography - keep an eye on the blog for an update...
