Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens Pre-Wedding Photography ~ Dan Barlow

Shabina & Usman

Shabina & Usman had their autumnal pre-wedding photoshoot at Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens in Didsbury which we did in the late afternoon to get the gorgeous sunset light. They wanted a mixture of posed and unposed portraits but with a strong bias towards the unposed. By reviewing the posed portraits together, they could decide what what was working well for them – entirely what I’d consider to be the key point of a pre-wedding photoshoot.

The following portraits are from the undirected and unposed end of the spectrum; they required minimal direction as we had talked through posing earlier in the session and Shabina & Usman were now comfortable and confident enough to show me what they could do.

You can see Shabina & Usman’s wedding photography here.

Here’s a small selection of Shabina & Usman’s set:

Marie Louise Gardens Pre-Wedding Photoshoot ~ Dan Barlow Photography

Jamie & Huw & Cathy

Jamie and Huw’s reschedule of their pre-wedding photoshoot meant that we got all this gorgeous sunshine to play with on their recent evening photo session at Marie Louise Gardens in Didsbury, as well as the opportunity for me to meet the lovely baby Cathy. Mixing the pre-wedding photoshoot up with a family photoshoot was a great way to see how we will approach the formal portraits at their upcoming wedding, as well as giving Jamie and Huw a precious record of their first child.

After all this warm summer sunlight, I cannot wait for their autumnal Thanksgiving wedding!
