before their wedding in avallon

I love photographing couples just before the wedding day- whether it’s the rehearsal dinner or an engagement session the day before the wedding… just before they become husband and wife. So special and so full of anticipation!

Loved this time with Natasha and Manu before they wed in Avallon, France.


Laura - Beautiful!! Love that last frame, so romantic :)

Linnea - Rylee, these are gorgeous! Love how you incorporated staircases & doors into this pre-wedding photo shoot as symbols of the journey ahead and the steps they will travel together in married life. Love your work!

Natasha Hurley - Oh Rylee, I absolutely loved this moment. The quietness of wandering through the French fields as the sun set with you and Andrew. And to have it captured so beautifully is just perfect. Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job – so happy to have this evening and the emotions and joy that we were feeling on film. Much love from Manu and me – from a rather cold London! x
