Monique & Matt’s Pre Shoot

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

So its been a little while since Monique & Matt’s Pre Shoot back in May but as I was backing up some jobs and had another look through, I just had to share some more with you.

This lovely couple will be getting married in September and I can’t wait to get back to the church in Great Bowden to take more photos. We should by then also have some autumnal colours on the trees which will only add to the photos even more (I have mentioned this a few times before BUT Autumn is my favourite time of the year!).

After their ceremony on the day it will be on to Foxton Locks for the celebrations with their guests, which means even more photo opportunities…in between canapés and bubbles that is!

Booking a Pre Shoot in before your wedding day is always a good idea as it gives us the opportunity to get to know each other a bit, to talk through your plans of the day and to try out some of the photo ideas before the day itself. Pre Shoots are always relaxed and fun! Chatting and laughing our way through was definitely something we did for this session.

Here are some more of my favourites from their Pre Wedding Shoot…PreShoot_001 PreShoot_007 PreShoot_011 PreShoot_015 PreShoot_017

A pre shoot at Keythorpe Manor

Friday, May 26th, 2017

I can’t wait to be back at Keythorpe Manor tomorrow with our lovely bride & groom to be, Katherine and Ed!

We met up for their pre shoot at the start of the month, which gave us a great chance to explore the grounds as it was my first time at Keythorpe Manor. As soon as your enter the grounds you are spoilt for choice on where to take photos. The beautiful manor itself provides a lovely backdrop, or the many winding paths through the grounds, and all of this is surrounded by countryside.

Elmo also joined us for some photos, and all though he was a little excited as it was also his first time at Keythorpe, he was amazing in front of the camera!

So tomorrow we will be recreating some of these photos of the newlyweds and I can’t wait to see how the photos on the swing turn out with the bride and groom in a gown and suit!

Amy & Jakes Pre Wedding Shoot

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

I recently got to meet up with Amy & Jake again as it was time for their pre wedding shoot, with their wedding only a few weeks away! So off we headed to the beautiful Bassmead Manor Barns to take at look around their chosen venue, discuss last minute details ahead of their big day and to take some photos around the grounds to show the type of photos we could get on the day itself.

We were spoilt for choice for photo opportunities with the tree lined drive leading to the venue, the surrounding landscape of fields as far as the eye could see, and the barn yards surrounded by the stream.

On top of all these options for the photos, we also had the sun shining to finish it all off. I can’t wait to get back to the barns and to recreate some of these with soon to be newlyweds. Here are my favourites for you to take a look through….

Vanessa & Nick’s Pre Shoot

Friday, December 16th, 2016

It turned out to be the most foggy day of the year so far, but actually I like it! Here are my favourites from Vanessa & Nick’s Pre Shoot.

I have been lucky enough to photograph weddings at Barton Hall on a few occasions now, and loved the difference the fog made to the grounds during the pre wedding shoot!

It was important to capture Vanessa and Nick looking comfortable on camera, especially as they had mentioned how much they don’t like having their photo taken! And that didn’t take long at all as they are so relaxed as a couple so we chatted and joked all the way through. Take a look at their pre shoot photos to see for yourself…

I’m already looking forward to being back at Barton Hall in March to photograph their Wedding Day!

Sheridan & Matthew’s Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

On Saturday it was Sheridan & Matthew’s Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot at Barton Hall Hotel, Kettering Northamptonshire.

This year I am lucky enough to have three weddings I will be photographing at Barton Hall Hotel, Northamptonshire which will all be unique in their own way. This Grade two listed building is well known for the striking orangery to the rear of the hall which is where most people hold their ceremony and drinks reception.

This was a great chance to talk through some of the details of the couples big day and how they will be making the most of the venue for their wedding photography.

Sheridan and Matthew shared that they prefer more natural photos rather than anything too staged, so it was my job to get them relaxed in front of the camera so I could capture them look comfortable and happy together.

The most important thing for me when shooting multiple weddings at the same venue is to make sure the photography is individual to each couple, especially during the pre-shoots before the couple have put their stamp on the venue. So all though a few of the same areas around the hall are used, its all about adding new ideas to keep the photography fresh.

Pre-Wedding Shoots are a great way to run through any photo ideas ahead of your big day. It is also a chance for me to see how you are in front of the camera, what your comfortable with and what comes naturally to you. If you or your partner are feeling nervous at the thought of having your photo taken it will help with nerves as you will see I work in a relaxed way.

Pre-Wedding Shoots are included in all of my Wedding Photography packages but are still optional.

 

Rob & Hannah’s Spring Pre-Wedding Shoot

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

Rob & Hannah’s Spring Pre-Wedding Shoot took place on Easter Sunday at the stunning venue of Brownsover Hall Hotel, Old Brownsover, Rugby.

This was a new venue for me and from what I had seen on the website, I couldn’t wait to look around. Located on the edge of Rugby, the Grade II Victorian Gothic mansion is surrounded by 7 acres of woodland and gardens which keep the hall a hidden gem.

As you turn off the country road and in to the entrance of the hall you are greeted with a canopy of trees leading you towards the entrance. With walled gardens to cobbled courtyards and forest walks there are so many photo opportunities. After a wonder around the grounds it was time to meet Rob and Hannah to discuss timings and plans for their wedding day. With a log fire crackling in the background it made the hall very inviting and cosy despite the high ceilings and victorian gothic features.

Once we had talked everything through it was back out side to take some photos of the couple. It was a bit chilly but this was nothing to complain about as the forecast leading to the day had warned of rain all day! Luckily the sun made an appearance and stayed for the duration! It really does add to the shots, highlighting areas of the building and shining through sections of the trees.

 Shooting with a mixture of the Canon 24-70mm and 70-200mm lenses I wanted to show the beautiful surrounds but also get some shots focusing closer on the couple.

I am now really looking forward to Rob and Hannah’s big day where we will get to recreate some of these photo’s with the groom suited and booted and the bride in her beautiful wedding gown.
