Steph and James Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lytham St Annes


Here’s the follow up to the sneak preview earlier in the week – the absolutely lovely Steph and James who are getting married at Lytham Hall and then having their reception at The Grand (how cool is that? Two great venues in one day!)

Steph really liked the idea of getting onto the beach at Lytham if the weather allowed so that was our starting point. As you can see, we got really lucky with the weather (this was the end of January) although it was bitterly cold in the shade! There was actually ice washing up onto the beach it was that cold!

The most important thing for me with pre-wedding shoots is to get the bride and groom as relaxed as possible as quickly as possible. It’s important for the shoot to be fun, no pressure on anyone and very informal. I try not to get too heavy with posing couples and aim to keep things as natural as possible.

That hopefully means that on the wedding day, they’re not going to be nervous about the photography and actually are going to look forward to having their pictures taken as equally as they look forward to all the other parts of their big day.

Here’s a few of my favourites from the shoot…



After the beach we headed to Lowther Gardens to change the location slightly…


I love these two shots – they really tell a story…


Really can’t wait for Steph and James’s day now – they really know how they want their day to work and how they want the photography to fit into that which I absolutely love. It’s great when my clients have a real passion about their day and the photography and I think that actually shines through the images.

Their day is going to be spectacular, with the added bonus of getting to work with some of my absolute favourite weddings friends, Flower Design and Rowley’s Catering who I know will do an amazing job for Steph and James.

See you in a couple of weeks guys!
