Engagement
Sessions

“I understand that having your photo taken can be a little weird. But I’m going to ask you to trust me, and you’re going to like it.”

Hands down, they are the best way to take the edge off your wedding day.

Engagement sessions are our chance to get to know each other, channel your personality into photographs, and get you comfortable in front of my camera. A session will make your wedding day a breeze. You’ll feel more comfortable when your not conscious of the camera and don’t have to worry about photography.

In addition, they’re an opportunity to create photos you simply can’t on a busy wedding day schedule. There’s no timelines to adhere to, no party to miss and no guests vying for your attention.

I’ll get the two of you relaxed, smiling and laughing.

Chances are one of you has mixed feelings about an engagement sessions or photography. You might worry that you’ll look awkward.

That’s natural. But having an engagement session before the wedding gives you a practice run. It’ll help you relieve those pre-wedding jitters. When the day comes, we’ll be friends and you’ll know what to expect, and you’ll be ready and keen for more portraits.

Or you might not worry about any of that and simply want some awesome photographs somewhere pretty. Either way, it’s a win-win situation. I’m super friendly, personable, and upbeat. I do my best to help you relax and have a good time. I’m not the greatest fan of being asked to smile on command so we’ll steer clear of that and any micro-adjustment posing. It’ll be fun I promise.

Beach Enagement Sessions

Wales is beautiful, making it the perfect place for pre wedding photographs. Think warm relaxing colour scheme and shades of beige and orange against the deep-blue hue of the ocean. Or maybe sunsets, wind in your hair, big picture - little people photographs, reflections, silhouettes, movement and energy, nature…you get the idea.

These are all the things that excite me about the beach and if those words resonate with you then let me know. Some outstanding pre-wedding shoot locations that are nearby include Nash Point, Rest bay in Porthcawl, Dunraven or Southerdown Beach, Ogmore-by-Sea, Aberthaw Beach or limpet Bay, Penarth Beach, Caswell Bay Beach, Cefn Sidan, and Oxwich Bay.

Forest Enagement Sessions

If you’re looking for a more forested, outdoorsy setting in which to shoot, then I got you covered. I’m a regular hiker so know loads of spots that will make a perfect backdrop. I’m always up for going the extra mile for stunning backdrops and if that sounds like you too, then drop me a message!

And if you’re totally bonkers and want the best backdrop in South Wales, the Brecon Beacons it is.
