Post-wedding outdoor photography session in Wales
Pre-Covid: Right in the thick of wedding planning? You know you want more than just candid portraits. But trying to nail your timeline for the day without worrying about spending too much time away from your friends & family when there’s so much partying to be done is not that easy, right?! 2021 UPDATE: now imagine you’re right in the middle of a pandemic?! Maybe you didn’t quite get to spend your day in the way you had hoped for and partying was definitely not on the agenda (imagine that, eh!?). Maybe COVID messed things up a little for you and although your day was EPIC – you just want something beautiful and just for the two of you to remember these crazy times by. That’s exactly why Adam & Rhiannon booked a post-wedding session around Bala and also why you should consider a post-wedding photography shoot!
Post-wedding outdoor photoshoot
For Lauren & Ellie’s post-wedding photography session by a glacier lake, we headed to a secluded spot in Snowdonia. Having nervously watched COVID restrictions affect their initial wedding plans, the couple ended up postponing their big family celebrations. And went ahead with a really low-key wedding on their 9th anniversary in August anyway! After a memorable day with their families, the wives travelled to Snowdonia for their minimoon just 2 days after. Seemed like the perfect time to mark the momentous occasion with a relaxed post-wedding mini-adventure photography session in Wales!
Why should you consider a post-wedding shoot?
Most couples opt for a pre-wedding photoshoot to feel more comfortable about being in front of the camera. Which makes total sense. But post-wedding photography sessions could offer so much more! Of course, it’s super exciting to use pre-wedding photos on your actual wedding day. But just think about how much more exciting it will feel to spend some quality time together on a mini-adventure! You even get to wear your beautiful wedding dress again!
Post-wedding photography sessions can also take the stress away if you’re worried about what weather conditions will be like on your actual wedding day. Although – don’t worry about the weather too much, bad weather can make for awesome pictures! And of course rain on your wedding day means your marriage will be a long & happy one! Maybe you’re planning a super low key affair and your location just doesn’t really have that epic backdrop you’re dreaming of? Swap a pre-wedding photography session for a post-wedding one and spend some quality time together exploring a beautiful location. You could even dress up again if you wanted to!
Post-Wedding Shoot Ideas
While your actual wedding pictures will transport you straight back to your perfect day, post-wedding photography sessions offer the perfect opportunity to get a little more creative in a super relaxed environment. You’ll be able to wear your perfect dress again or just come as you are and pick a spot you love without having to worry if it’s the right spot for everybody else.
