Shannon and Shade; Pre-wedding photos

Shannon and Shade's wedding is quickly approaching so we headed out to the Mt Cootha Botanical Gardens for the pre-wedding shoot.

Pre-wedding (or e-shoots) are great for both the photographer and the couple to get to know each other and encourage a bit of bonding between them before the big event. After all, the photographer is the person who will be by your side for the entire day and if you can't relax around them, it's going to show in the images.

Shannon and Shade are a lot of laughs and completely at ease in front of the camera. Shade's sense of humour sparkled within about three photos when he remarked he should have been a model. I think he might be right!

I can't wait for this wedding as I'm sure it's going to be alot of fun with this gorgeous and vibrant couple. Bring on August 29th!
