Because your wedding day deserves to be epic, unscripted, and captured in all its glorious, unfiltered fun.

Let's Get The Party Started With A Pre Wedding Photo Shoot!

Skip the pre-wedding jitters, embrace the “yay-we’re-getting-married” giggles, and capture that giddy feeling forever with a pre-wedding photoshoot! Think of it as a romantic dress rehearsal, minus the vows (and maybe the cake, though we can dream…).

Here’s the scoop on why it’s more than just pretty pictures:

  • Break the ice with your photographer ( me! ): No more awkward posing on the big day! Get to know your lens maestro ( that will be me again ! ) beforehand, feel their vibe, and nail those natural smiles.
  • Conquer camera shyness: butterflies fluttering in your stomach? A pre-wedding shoot is like boot camp for camera confidence. Strike a pose, own it, and radiate love for the lens (and your partner, of course!).
  • Lovebirds on location: Ditch the studio and paint the town ( or park ) red! Choose a backdrop that reflects your love story, and let the scenery tell part of your unique tale.
  • Save the dates in style: Forget boring emails, unleash your inner models! Pre-wedding pics are perfect for save-the-dates, guestbooks, or even just gushing on social media ( I won’t judge! ).
  • Memories beyond the cake: Let’s be real, the wedding whirlwind can sweep you off your feet. A pre-wedding photoshoot is a chance to savour the pre-nuptial bliss, capture those quiet moments, and create a treasure trove of memories that go beyond the ceremony.

So, ditch the pre-wedding worries and embrace the fun! A pre-wedding photoshoot is a chance to celebrate your love, document your excitement, and get picture-perfect ready for the biggest day of your life. And hey, if you score some Insta-worthy snaps along the way, well, that’s just icing on the pre-wedding cake!

Pre wedding photo shoots are optional. Sessions will take place at a location within a 20 miles radius of Runcorn, Cheshire.

Photography by Michael Pardoe

Runcorn, Cheshire

Ahoy there, mateys! Ever wondered what this mug behind the camera’s all about? Well, brace yourselves for a whirlwind tour of my life, seasoned with a pinch of Black Country grit and a dollop of Cheshire charm.

Hailing from the legendary Brierley Hill, I swapped metal mills for Mersey views when I landed in Runcorn. Photography’s been my jam since I was knee-high to a grasshopper, developing my first film at the tender age of 11 (back in the days when dinosaurs roamed the earth and photos weren’t beamed by magic!). Fast-forward to 2012, I snagged my first event gig, and a couple of years later, took the plunge and went full-time pro. No wedding bells just yet though, I cut my teeth on commercial shoots, event snaps, and the occasional family portrait ( think smiling faces, crying babies, living the dream! ).

Finally, in 2014, I said “I do” to the world of weddings, polished up my skills with some fancy training, and unleashed my shutterbug fury on the unsuspecting public in 2015. When I’m not wrangling cameras and capturing love stories, you’ll find me throwing punches, well teaching others how to throw punches and more as a qualified England Boxing coach ( Runcorn ABC ), lacing up my boots for a good walk, roughing it in a tent ( glamping, of course! ), or belting out “Come on you Baggies!” ( I’m a West Brom fan, just in case you didn’t know ).

So there you have it, folks! A photographer, a boxing coach, a walker, a camper, a football fanatic – all rolled into one. Buckle up, it’s gonna be a wild ride!

P.S. If you’re looking for someone to capture your special day with a smile and a cheeky wink, hit me up! I promise it’ll be more fun than a barrel of monkeys (and infinitely less messy!) and just a little bit less crazy than a box of frogs!
