Jeanette and Michael Pre Wedding Shoot Thursaston

Jeanette and Michael Pre Wedding Shoot Thursaston

We love our pre wed shoots with our couples and last Saturday was no exception …

it was supposed to be a wet grey miserable day, but it wasn’t :-)…well not until we were done and having a coffee in the cafe.

This couple –  Jeanette and Michael –  deserve to have sunshine and good things happening to them, they have been through some tough scary times. with their family.

Like most couples they said they felt nervous and unsure  what to expect , not really camera people…
…but no worries  and within 2 minutes we were completely relaxed with each other and I hope you agree Pixsmiths got some lovely natural together shots for them.

Here we are at Thurstaston Country Park – a place which has lots of memories for them  – enjoy!

Looking forward to their wedding in Liverpool now in the summer even more.

Selina and Martin Pre Wed Ashton Park, West Kirby

Selina and Martin Pre Wed Ashton Park, West Kirby

A walk in our own local Aston Park in West Kirby was the setting for Selina and Martin  pre wedding session. Lovely spring blossoms in the park and we caught some sunshine before the rain came in the afternoon.  Selina loves colourful shoes,  yellow for this occasion, which added a lovely splash of colour to the images.  We know what colour shoes she will have on her wedding day – at Rowton Hall this autumn – but you’ll have to check back to find out!

Beccy and Rob Pre Wed Royden Park

Beccy and Rob Pre Wed Royden Park

Hope you are enjoying all these pre-wed shoots we’ve been blogging recently – soon it will be all the weddings!
Beccy and Rob  are having a summer church wedding followed by reception at Brook Meadow  we are looking forward to.
First we caught up with all their news whilst we took some photos of them in the delightful Royden Park. Our couples are really enjoying these pre-wed or engagement shoots, a chance to get to know you and reflect your personality through the images taken. Its not all about our ideas but yours too.  Beccy and Rob were great fun and real naturals.  Beccy has a beautiful engagement ring – and we love to take ring shots – it is inscribed with  a bible reference from Ecclesiastes – “two are better than one”  how beautiful is that! Here are some of our favs from the session.

If you’d like an outdoor portrait session with natural fun photos don’t hesitate to contact us! Its not obligatory to be engaged either!

Laura and Rob Engagement Shoot New Brighton

Laura and Rob Engagement Shoot New Brighton

The recent Easter break was the ideal chance to catch up with Rob and Laura in New Brighton for their pre-wed shoot.  Lovely to finally meet with Rob too who is stationed in Cyprus with the RAF.   These sessions are all about getting to know each other before the day, getting relaxed in front of  a camera and  of course some lovely images which are yours to keep!  We soon felt relaxed with each other and set off for a stroll around New Brighton, a bit cool so with all the new cafes around we had to pop into Starbucks for a hot chocholate and coffees.

Plans for their summer wedding at Thornton Hall – hopefully in the pagoda – are well on track and we look forward to capturing the  story of their day then.  For now hope you enjoy some favourite images from the shoot.


Sam and Dave Pre-Wed

Sam and Dave Pre-Wed

Sam and Dave are getting married in October so August was a good time to catch up with their wedding plans and take some images so we are relaxed with each other on the day itself. Their chosen location was close to their home, just by the Ellesmere Port Boat Museum. It proved to be a surprising location and we discovered a variety of shots to take.

The ring shot was an impromptu off the cuff shot – literally!. Sitting down with Sam and Dave for a drink at the end of the session what did I see but two red hearts on the white saucer. So quick wipe clean of tea splodges with my sleeve and got Sam to put her ring on the saucer. It may have seemed a daft idea but I hope you agree it worked a treat 🙂  Just goes to show you can’t always plan a shot and the off the cuff ones can be the most memorable! Sam love the boats so it was fitting that a huge boat went past on the canal just as the sun was shining brightly in the late afternoon. Sam and Dave were a joy to photograph, their happiness shone through and we had a blast! Looking forward to the wedding now. Below a few of the images we took.  Like a  pre-wed shoot too? – just contact us for details.
