I met up with Mark and Katy at their home in Leighton Buzzard at the end of November last year. They are getting married next month so we thought the gorgeous autumn colours would be a nice contrast to the bright spring palette of their wedding day. We had only spoken on the phone before so it was lovely to finally meet in person and we chatted for a while before we took a walk to Linslade Woods for their pre-wedding shoot. If they were nervous, you couldn’t tell as they seemed totally natural and relaxed in front of the camera! It didn’t take long for us to have some gorgeous shots of them together. Now its countdown to wedding time and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding day!
Lots of my couples worry about their engagement photos. They book me because they love my candid approach to weddings and quite often don’t like having their photographs taken so it seems daunting to head out just the two of you and me and my camera! I totally understand, I feel awkward having my photo taken too! It would seriously recommend braving it and not skipping your complimentary engagement shoot. Firstly, its a great opportunity for us to get to know each other a little before the big day. It might have been a while since we last saw each other or maybe the first time we will get a chance to meet. If you are nervous about having your photo taken it makes sense to try it out before your wedding so that on the day you don’t have to worry at all. We can also work out what sort of things work for you both so that by the time you do your couple portraits on the day we can get some lovely natural shots really quickly which leaves you with more time to enjoy the day!
