Nottingham Wedding Photographer Engagement and Pre Wedding Photography

leave a comment

As a professional wedding photographer in Nottinghamshire and Mansfield, I have come across lots of people who are slightly uncomfortable at having the camera pointed at them. It can be even more daunting to have someone you don’t know very well pointing that camera at you. That’s why I think it can be a good idea to schedule in a little pre-wedding photography session so that you can get to know me, get comfy with me, and allow me to get a feel for what you hope to achieve from your wedding photography on your big day.

A pre wedding or engagement photo shoot is a fantastic way to get you and your partner ready for your official wedding photography. Some people are total naturals when it comes to having their photo taken, and really enjoy the process. But for others, it can mean feeling a little self conscious and uncomfortable!

Steph and Joel’s Pre-Wedding Engagement Photography Session

This is a great example of an engagement shoot that I was lucky enough to capture in some beautiful photographs of a bride and groom to be. We ventured into a wild flower project run by Donaster Council, and then moved on to Kings Wood outside Bawtry to capture the golden glow from the setting sun. I’m particularly fond of the shot of Steph and Joel bathed in sunlight surrounded by an array of beautiful, colourful flowers. I love the way that the evening sun illuminates their figures and intensifies the vibrancy of the flowers.

Getting Used to Being in Front of the Camera

Pre-wedding or engagement photography sessions are a great way to ease you in to your wedding photography. Establishing a rapport is really important in helping you to achieve natural, relaxed wedding photography that you can look back on with pride. My aim is to put you at ease in front of the camera so that you can fully relax and enjoy being photographed. It’s also the perfect opportunity to have some fun, play around with ideas you may have, and find out exactly what works best for you!

Wedding Photography Nottingham: Tips for Choosing a Wedding Gown

leave a comment

From gorgeous gowns to intricate embellishments, take a look at this lovely selection of inspirational images that may just help you along in your quest to find the perfect wedding dress!

As a professional wedding photographer covering the Nottingham and Mansfield area, James Davies has the pleasure of seeing a selection of absolutely beautiful wedding dresses. For many women, choosing the perfect wedding dress is one of the most important decisions that a bride can make for her big day. If you’ve set a date and still need to decide on a dress, he’s put together a few examples of some of the wedding dresses that he’s been lucky enough to photograph.

Lace-Up Corset Style Wedding Dress

A popular detail on wedding dresses from several eras, the corset style of a lace up back adds instant glamour and elegant detail to a dress. Back closures on women’s clothes were traditionally a sign of wealth in centuries gone by, implying that the wearer had a servant that would help her to dress. You may make do with a willing bridesmaid these days, but the effect is still stunning! Using a thin sash of material, the dress is tied up at the back in a criss-cross fashion in the same way that a corset is fastened. This example includes delicate silk ribbon which contrasts beautifully with the floral appliqué and intricate beading on the bodice and skirt.

Veiled Traditional White Wedding Gown

A traditional white wedding gown with a simple veil is the perfect choice for a classic and timeless look. This gorgeous gown has a full skirt achieved with a layering effect using net and voile, perfectly complimenting the sheer fabric detail on the bodice and the elegant flowing effect of the veil.

50’s Style Wedding Gown

This 50’s inspired dress with lace detail and eye catching fascinator is a winning look. The ankle length skirt with its visible lining adds a touch of vintage glamour, and gives the bride the opportunity to show off her beautiful shoes! I love the way that she has chosen a bright floral bouquet to compliment her on trend lip and nail colour, instantly adding a modern twist to this classic look.
