Do you need a pre-wedding shoot? No. Should you have one? Absolutely!
Pre-wedding shoots give you the chance to have a gorgeous set of images - in a different location (and a different season!) to your wedding if you want.
Some people use the images from their pre-wedding shoot in save the dates or a guestbook or around their wedding so there can be added bonuses.
It also gives you the chance to get more comfortable in front of the camera and for us to have a chilled meet up ahead of the big day.
