Engagemet photography cambridgehire
Have you heard of yarn bombing yet?
Neither did I. Until recently. I was just thinking about a location for a engagement session with Gerry and David and someone had mentioned to me that there is some of that going on at Anglesey Abbey. Some crafty people who obviously like knitting a lot! covered trees, statues or bicycles with colourful crocheted designs to promote the famous Le Tour’s visit to Cambridgeshire this year. That could work. I thought. Gerry and David agreed and we met one afternoon and off we went to explore...
Rachel and Ben Engagement
Proof that winter can be as magical as let's say summer. Though cold and windy Rachel and Ben braved it. A bit more Ben as I asked him to take his jacket off for the entire shoot. Sorry Ben!! At one point I asked them to snuggle up as if they were really cold, on which Rachel reacted "AS IF?!?" :) I think it was all worth it. Love the earthy tones!
Before I arrange the date and place for my couples’ engagement photo sessions,
I try to find out something about them. When I learned that they both love afternoon tea, picnics and collect crockery for their own wedding it did not take me long to figure out how this photo shoot would go. It was sweet, it was fun, it was Bethany and Phil.
Location: Gardens of Hinwick House, Bedfordshire
This engagement shot stars Fiona, Ben and Mollie the dog. It all happened in the back gardens of this rather cool wedding venue of Hinwick House.
Before, I only knew Fiona and Ben from a few quick emails so I thought we should first talk over the schedule of the day
and get to know each other a bit better. Feeling at ease and trusting your photographer is really important
. It can make all the difference to your photos. We wanted to include Mollie in the shots but Mollie had other ideas.
She was too excited by all the freedom, exploring, smells and running about. But now and then she did (sometimes unexpectedly)
come to visit and join us for a bit. Good girl, Mollie.
