Also known as an engagement session Jon offers an optional, relaxed and complimentary pre-wedding meeting and photo session to every couple who book their Wedding photography with us. Some offer these sessions as part of a sales process we offer them as standard and what's more it's not just the session we offer complimentary - the images from this session are simply added to your USB of Wedding images so you have all of your images both from your relaxed session and your Wedding Day. We arrange your pre-wedding for about 4 - 6 weeks prior to your Wedding day to enable you to meet up with Jon, run through the timing of your day, let him take a number of relaxed photographs and enable him to answer any questions you may have. These sessions can either be at your favourite local location or at your wedding venue. If you choose your wedding venue Jon can also use the opportunity to discuss how and where you would like your Wedding photographs produced as you walk around (although this is not essential as Jon always visits your venue prior to your big day if he has not been there before to check for beautiful locations). Pre-Weddngs are completely optional but highly recommended. It is a great opportunity for you to get to know Jon better and for him to put your mind at rest - your photography is in safe hands. By the end of the session you will be very excited and already planning out your photography wish list for your big day.
Our couples often request that we arrange for a Signature Print using their favourite image from this session. This special mounted print is created for your guests to sign and leave personal messages of congratulations for you. After your Wedding you can then arrange for this to be framed creating an amazing keep sake from your wedding with wonderful messages from all of your family and friends.
These sessions are very relaxed and lots of fun.

Advantages of your Pre-Wedding Photo session:
1. Allow Jon to get to know you a little better and spend a little time in front of the camera so you feel far more relaxed on your big day.
2. As you know Jon better you feel more relaxed on your big day and this will show in your photographs. Result lovely photographs.
3. As you walk around Jon can show you different styles of photography and you can choose your favourites from your session. This gives us a very clear understanding of your photography likes which Jon can then focus on when photographing your Wedding.
4. You get to have fun and have some lovely relaxed photos to show for it which you and your family will love.
5. If you have children you are welcome to bring them along and we can turn it into a family fun session. They will be more inclined to be part of your photography on your big day if they know Jon in advance.
If you think this is a great way to help you relax, get to know us better and also receive beautiful photographs of you both before and on your Wedding day then contact us today.
