This was a really fun photo shoot to do, and I was very lucky to have an exceptionally talented team of people to work with.
We were also lucky with the weather, as it had been snowing the weekend before. Still cold though, so apologies to our very professional models Ruth and Millie for that!
Our wardrobe was incredible and there’s loads of stuff we didn’t get to use. Great job by Tam and co to give us this very authentic look.
Julia Nicholls and Rhiannon Pritchard are true artists with hair and make-up respectively. If you’re planning a wedding in North Wales, chances are you’ve heard of them already.
This is apparently not Snowdonia Classic Carriage’s most popular car for weddings – brides tend to go for their stunning white classic cars – but I love the look of this one. Big thank you to Meinir for coming out during a busy period.
I had planned for an overcast day, with various warming gels, filters and lights. As it happened, we had sunshine and so for most of the photos we just used a reflector, which allowed us to shoot a lot of poses in a short time.
I always do pre-wedding photo shoots when I’m booked for weddings, and usually try and time them to make the most of natural light.
These also are a lot of fun, they allow me to get to know my couples before their wedding day, and this helps us create better photos.
The shoot would not have been possible without Y Gelfa studio accommodating us on Easter Sunday. This studio is a hot spot for musicians wishing to record in a pro environment at incredibly competitive prices. They also provide photography and video services… check them out with the link at the top of this page.
Bts video will be coming out later in the week, courtesy of my video man Lyndon Marshall.
Thanks for coming to take a look … Tomx
