When I first ‘met’ Sarah and Ian in a Facetime conversation, I could tell that they were both excited about their wedding but that they were equally nervous about posing in front of a camera. It’s a natural reaction, and most of us aren’t used to having a lens stuck in our face, and it can make people feel very self-conscious. What I as a photographer want is for my couples to be happy and relaxed, as this will come across in the images so I suggested a pre-wedding or engagement shoot.
Ian and Sarah had first met as undergraduates at St. Andrews University, and therefore it was important to them that the engagement shoot would be in St. Andrews. After a few frames, it was is if both had completely forgotten that a camera was there, and I think the images show just how happy both of them are.
