Win a Pre-Wedding Shoot with Dominic Whiten Photography!
One of the first things that I was really excited about after getting engaged was the possibility of doing an engagement shoot. I knew that they were popular in the States, but I was really pleased to find that they were also often part of wedding photographer packages here in the UK as well. Its the perfect opportunity to a bit of practicing before the big day.
Dominic Whiten offers all his clients this service as part of his standard wedding coverage. “I find meeting and photographing my clients prior to their wedding day a real benefit.” He says “Let’s face it, unless you’re a model, how often do any of us seriously pose for a photograph? A session like this helps a couple feel more relaxed in front of the camera and, importantly, helps me identify what look and shots will work best. This means that come their wedding day, a couple know what to expect from me and feel comfortable with being given direction. This invariably results in fab shots which not only relect a couples personality, but make them look darned good!”
Location can also play a significant part in a pre-wedding shoot, adding an extra dimension to your shots. “When choosing a location, I always ask my couples to think of a place which either has a special significance or they feel they identify with” This approach has lead to shoot at locations as diverse as Dungeness beach in Kent and Tate Modern Gallery in London.
As part of OMG’s 12 Days of Christmas, Dominic is offering one lucky couple their own FREE pre-wedding shoot. The shoot will take place in London at a location and venue to be decided.
