Themed pre wedding shoot at Brighton beach

I’ve been holding back posting some of my themed pre wedding shoots for a looong time, and its been killing me! I love these sessions so much! The creative visual artist in me is unleashed and I really like to go to town with themes, locations and story boarding an idea. I have many more to feature and will be creating a dedicated blog post on my themed pre wedding shoots, which will explain the story of how I came about’s doing these shoots, and has now it has been identified as one of my signature ‘looks’

OK on to Sonia and Shivam’s themed session…well it was taken on one of the hottest days of the year! You would think that all the glorious sunshine is what we crave for as a photographer, but in all honesty, it is a nightmare to shoot in! Harsh shadows, over exposure, its really not the most flattering light..but one thing being a wedding photographer has taught me, is to be prepared for the unexpected! With Sonia and Shivam’s Hindu wedding weeks away and wedding season into full swing, I couldn’t re schedule the shoot. I am really glad I didn’t, I’ve learned that sometimes these added pressures are a blessing in disguse (as I am often faced with at weddings) They force you to think on your toes which is why Iam super happy with these set of images.

I got to thank Sonia and Shivam for being so patient with me (it was a long and hot day!) and trusting me with me vision. I always like to have a slight editorial look with my pre wedding sessions and I really loved the outfits and props the couple brought along. Here are a selection of my favorites from the day
