Historically, I don’t seem to book March weddings, so I generally spend the month packing in prewedding shoots ahead of the summer. I do love a prewedding shoot; having a bit more time for portraits is a real luxury, as much as I love shooting families, children can be really hard work and I find myself shooting really quickly as kids just don’t stop, or don’t always understand what I’m asking them to do. Mostly, my adult subjects are happy to be slower paced and the bonus is that I feel like that hour or so is when I really get to know my couples; not just what they’re like when they’re in front of the camera and how to get them comfortable about having their pictures taken, but what makes them tick too, aside from their wedding plans.
Scott and Guy are no exception to this and by the time I packed up my kit on Saturday, I felt like I’d known them forever. They’re such a gorgeous pair and loveliness just radiates between them. We spent the morning mooching around some livery stables and as usual I was drawn to the scraggy stuff and the unordinary; I fell in love with a pile of pallets but Scott and Guy were less sure about venturing into an empty stable that hadn’t yet been mucked out, despite my best efforts… The light in there reeally was beautiful, I promise!
It’s just a week until these two say I do at Barton Hall, and I’m excited to be back at one of my wonderful local venues for the first time this season. I’m also excited to be working with Fineshade Films… particularly because they’re also one of my 2017 couples!
Scott and Guy, I know from following you online that you’re frantically beavering away in preparation for next week but be sure to take some time out and enjoy these last few days too. I can’t wait to see you both on Saturday.
Big love xx
