Adventurous pre-wedding session – Llyn Ogwen
We love an adventure here at Fox and Bear, so you can imagine our excitement when the lovely Katie and Liam got in touch to book in their Llyn Ogwen pre-wedding shoot. These two were such great company. Katie is a budding wedding photographer herself so we spent a good while chatting away about all things photography (sorry Liam!) Like us they love mini adventures and adore throwing their gear into the car at the weekend and heading out into the wilderness.
Of course we also had a good natter about weddings and their plans. These two are so laid back that there was very little set in stone but we loved talking through venue options with them and they were excitedly telling us all about their ideas for the day.

Llyn Ogwen and the mountains surrounding are one of our favourite spots in Wales. Dramatic scenery, towering Snowdonia mountains and the most amazing lakes. What a dream! Found in one of the oldest National Parks in Wales we ventured off the path, following the base line of Tryfan (one of Wales’s most impressive looking mountains) before heading down towards Llyn Ogwen, with its clear waters and beautiful rock formations. Whilst we were heading toward the lake it began to rain! Not ones to be deterred we carried on and were rewarded with moody skies and some amazing greenery.
Why book a pre-wedding session?
We pride ourselves on our raw, honest and intimate approach to photography, so why would we want to take you out to pose for a pre-wedding shoot? Well, first things first a pre-wedding session is not about awkward poses and you two standing in one spot for hours on end. It’s about connection, us connecting with you and, more importantly, you two connecting with each other. Have a break from wedding planning and take a moment to remember what got you to this stage – the love you have for each other and the partnership you’ve created. We head out to a location – either somewhere that’s special to you both or somewhere new to explore – we spend the time chatting, laughing and getting to know each other. All the while Dewi, is getting some natural and relaxed photographs of you together. We always come away with new friends and our past couples tell us that it makes such a difference to how they feel about being photographed on their wedding day.
If you want to book in your pre-wedding session then get in touch. We can’t wait to go on an adventure with you!
