“A picture is worth a thousand words
but your pictures left us speechless.”
Let’s run away, just
you and me
My Just Us Shoots are all about the two of you. They are a non-traditional version of an engagement shoot, with all the love and none of the cringe.
I offer pre and post-wedding Just Us shoots and I’ll explain why…
into the wild
pre wedding engagement
If you’re thinking of booking me, you’ll already be considering investing a reasonable amount in capturing a beautiful and unique wedding story. A pre-wed shoot comes highly recommended by myself and lots of my previous or existing clients (just take a look at my Testimonials page!).
I often watch as people’s faces turn a little sour at the mention of this type of shoot, people often say they can’t think of anything worse, that they worry it’ll be awkward and cringey. As someone who ironically hates having her photo taken, I totally get it.
However, just like at weddings, my approach to these shoots is natural, informal with a little creativity to capture the authentic story of you.
I genuinely believe that if you’re going to invest in your wedding photographs, you should go the extra mile to have a sort of practice run. Not only will you feel considerably more relaxed in front of the camera on your wedding day and get some gorgeous photos, you’ll also learn that I really do mean it when I say to just basically ignore me!
how does it
you may have noticed…
You may have noticed… I love the great outdoors and so it’s music to my ears when clients ask me if we can head off somewhere a little wild and wonderful for their Just Us shoot. I strongly recommend heading somewhere rural and secluded but will send out a full guide with loads more information about choosing your Just-Us location in and around the Bristol area.
We’ll probably go on a really cool walk; we’ll chat and get to know each other, and we’ll take some beautifully natural photographs. It’s all about having some fun and capturing the connection between you, so the more you can mess about and make each other laugh, pull silly faces and sneak a quick kiss, the better!
These moments are what makes your relationship, and this is what I’m capturing.
Inspired by the incredible Gabe McClintock this is an opportunity to get out into the wild to take some more beautiful portraits of you in your wedding attire. This can be done at any point after your wedding and is ideal for couples who have a tight timeline on their wedding day or who want some additional photographs for the wedding album.
Unlike the traditional “Trash the Dress’ shoot, my aim is not to trash anyone’s dress but to take a collection of additional, stunning imagery of the two of you in an alternative location, preferably somewhere wild and wonderful. And yes, your dress may get a little trashed, but with photos to last forever and a frock you’ll never wear again, who cares?
