Ben & Marleena
Manchester Engagement Photography Session
Meeting Ben & Marleena
Ben and Marleena’s wedding sounds so exciting. They’re doing their wedding day in 2 legs – part Lake District, part urban Manchester hotel – in May 2019. Their ceremony is going to be a really intimate affair, so I thought it’d be a great idea to hook up with them a month before their wedding day and get to know them.
A pre-wedding or engagement photoshoot is a great way to break the ice. We started off having a cuppa and a chat in their flat in the middle of Manchester, and then popped out to the canal and took some urban/industrial style shots. Not only was this an opportunity for me to see how they interact and how they show affection to each other, it was also a chance for them to make sure they were totally happy with me and the way I work. Wedding photography is super personal, so having a trial run like this is a pretty good idea.
