Joe and I decided to have a pre-wedding Photo shoot with our wedding Photographer Simon Buck. We chose to have our photos taken in Southwold which is one of my favourite beaches, I have such special memories of days spent at the beach here and it is a beautiful setting for photography.
I wanted to look my best for the pictures and went on the hunt for a make up artist in Norfolk. Emily from love moi makeup was recommended to me and was luckily available to help me out, she was fabulous and I would really recommend her to anyone looking for makeup. She gave me a really natural day look which is just what I wanted.
I have seen lots of people have pre wedding or engagement shoots and I love any excuse to take some nice photos. Our house is filled with photo frames and for me pictures are always a really special way of capturing a memory. We thought it would be a good way to get to know our photographer and for him to learn more about us and what we want on the big day. I was really excited but also quite nervous about having our photos taken by someone I don’t know. I am a bit of a perfectionist.
Simon made Joe and I feel so comfortable, we were worried we would feel awkward and embarrassed and that it would show in the pictures. We actually had a really fun time taking the photos, we were laughing and joking and enjoying doing something together. It is not often we really get photos together as we are usually taking them of Blythe so it was really nice to have them taken as a couple. We had Blythe in a few photos but she was more interested in playing in the sand and jumping of the sand dunes. Simon incredibly managed to catch some great family shots of us which is always hard to do with a toddler who doesn’t keep still. I thought I would share with you some of the taster Photos simon amazingly sent to us a few hours after our shoot. I can’t wait to see all the images. It has made Joe and I really look forward to having our photos taken again by simon but this time on our wedding day! We know he will capture our wedding perfectly and we can’t wait. If you are looking for wedding photography we would highly recommend Simon he is amazing and we can’t thank him enough for a lovely morning and the beautiful pictures he has created for us.
