Elaine and Marisa’s Fun Festive Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot at the Pavilion Club in East Molesey
The great thing about a pre-wedding photography shoot is that not only do we all get to know one another a little better before your wedding day, but it can be whatever you want it to be. Some couples choose a romantic kind of shoot in a beautiful, others can go for something a little more fun and less formal.
So, being keen tennis players, Elaine and Marisa, a really fun and lovely same-sex couple, immediately knew they wanted to incorporate tennis into their pre-wedding photography. So when the date I suggested coincided with their tennis club’s – the Pavilion Club in East Molesey, just down the road from the glorious Hampton Court Palace in Surrey – festive Christmas tennis tournament, they both jumped at the chance to have their pre-wedding photography shot during.
What I love about Elaine and Marisa is the fact they know what they want in a non-fussy, straightforward way. So they were definitely keen for me to incorporate my natural, candid and unobtrusive wedding photojournalism approach in shooting them at the tournament. With everyone dressed up in festive fancy dress it really was a relaxed and informal shoot – and one that perfectly showed the fun side of them both, which I just love. It’s great when you can incorporate a couple’s life and passions into a pre-wedding photography shoot, as it really reflects a part of their life and them, both as individuals and as a couple.
Of course, we did fit in a few portraits too afterwards – but on the whole it was a very candid and photojournalistic approach at a delightful tennis club in the depths of Surrey.
Here are a few selected images from their pre-wedding photography shoot. I can’t wait to get shooting their festive Christmas wedding photography at the Woodlands Park Hotel in Stoke D’abernon, Cobham in Surrey next week.
