If you can't think of a location to hold your pre wedding shoot why not choose the spot where you first met! This is exactly what Jennifer and Jack did when they chose Cambridge University as the location. They were both students at the University so it's a place that holds lots of fond memories, perfect to get all cuddly with one another! There were plenty of cool spots to create great images from amazing architecture to the immaculate lawns. It was my first visit to Cambridge and would love to go back for a day trip to explore all the shops and cosy little streets.
" They are AMAZING! Thank you so much, we absolutely love them and its incredible how quickly you had them edited and ready to go. Really looking forward to the day, thanks again for yesterday we both feel so much more relaxed now" Emma & Mark
Loved meeting up with Emma & Mark this weekend at Crickley Hill in the Cotswolds. It's a great location for couples to have a leisurely stroll and take in the amazing views across Gloucestershire including the Malvern Hills in the distance. It's also perfect if you're slightly nervous about having your picture taken as it's never too busy and includes loads of locations for cool pictures. I'm really looking forward to shooting Emma & Marks wedding this summer in beautiful Bath. I started my photographic career at the Bath Chronicle newspaper many years ago so the place holds many fond memories!
" We had great fun thanks, we love the photos they look fantastic! Thank you so much! Really looking forward to seeing the wedding photos already! " Carrie & Dan
Gorgeous sunny weather greeted us last weekend for Carrie & Dans pre wedding shoot on Leckhampton Hill in the Cotswolds! We started off in the woods surrounding Daisy Bank car park but soon made our way up to the top of the hill where we could enjoy the views and blue skies across Gloucestershire!
I keep my pre wedding and engagement shoots relaxed and informal. Lets face it, the majority of us don't particularly enjoy our picture being taken let alone have a camera follow them around all day. I break down these barriers by keeping things natural, fun and free flowing without being too forced or rigid.
Carrie and Dan were great to work with especially as Dan has a keen interest in photography and knew the type of shots I was trying to achieve! I'm really looking forward to shooting their wedding this year, it should be a blast!
I was hoping for great weather on Anjna & Robbies pre wedding shoot and boy did we get it! The location was Crickley Hill Country Park on the edge of Cheltenham and in the heart of the Cotswolds. Having moved the start time slightly earlier to 4.30pm I really wanted to capture the sunset and knew we would have great views on top of the hill. My first shot of the session was probably my favourite! The rich warm light casts a magical glow across the whole image as the pathway leads your eye up to Anjna & Robbie gazing out towards the spectacular Malvern Hills and their future together!
"The photos are fantastic!!!! Loved the colours and how you managed to find some stormy skies too! Thanks for editing them so quickly. Now we will just have the hard decision on which photos go on the invites!!" - Becky & Daff
Last weekend I hooked up with Becky & Daff for their pre wedding shoot. We decided on Leckhampton Hill in the heart of the gorgeous Cotswolds countryside! The views from the top of the hill are incredible and if you haven't been I would thoroughly recommend a visit. We parked in a quarry car park which offered countless photo opportunities that I couldn't resist. It did mean scrambling up and down rock faces which Becky was totally up for! These are the brides I love, willing to go the extra mile for a great picture!
Whether you've just become engaged or have been engaged for a while I would always recommend a pre wedding shoot before the big day arrives. It's a great way to put you at ease and give you an idea what your wedding day photography will be like! Cant wait to shoot Becky & Daffs wedding this summer!!
With wedding season just around the corner the next few months are all about pre wedding and engagement shoots! A few weeks ago I hooked up with Vicki & Tom in Wallingford for their pre wedding shoot. It was a grey, cold winters day but that didn't stop us from having a good time and snapping some fun pics! They were a great couple to work with and happy to go with the flow! I can't wait to shoot their wedding day in a few months time.
Autumn is my favourite time of the year to photograph happy couples! The colours and tones are incredible and you can't beat wrapping up in a wooly hat and gloves! A few weeks ago I spent a fun couple of hours with Lydia and Ed in the medieval town of Tewkesbury situated in the Cotswolds. My pre wedding and engagement shoots are brilliant at showing couples how I shoot and what their wedding day photography will be like. This awesome twosome were so chilled out and happy to go with the flow it made for some awesome pictures! I'm really looking forward to shooting their big day next year!!
Autumn is my favourite time of year to shoot so I was excited to meet up with Kylie & Matt for their pre wedding shoot in Cheltenham. The town is known as the heart of the Cotswolds and you can see why. The light was on awesome on Sunday, so warm and rich making for great natural pictures! It also helped that Kylie & Matt were so friendly and chilled out! Cant wait to shoot their wedding next year! :-)
