Engagement Photography in the Forest of Dean

Engagement Photography in the Forest of Dean – Every full price wedding photography collection I have includes an Engagement Shoot.  Why?  Well I want to get to know my clients; to know what they like, dislike, what makes them smile and what makes them laugh.

This Engagement Photography in the Forest of Dean session was just about as perfect as you could possibly get.  A great couple, a great location, the weather was perfect etc.  It doesn’t happen as easy as this!  I almost couldn’t take a bad photograph!!

So… what happens on these Engagement Sessions?

We agree a date and location (and as this is the UK we usually change it due to the weather!) and away we go.  I generally carry a fair amount of kit with me, and more in the car, just to be on the safe side.  After all you never know what kind of light or location you will really get until you are there.  I’m not a fan of “natural light” only photography.  You just can’t get the same look and feel as the images below without using flash of some sort.  My preferred unit is made in China – Godox – and is a great bit of kit.

After that it’s a matter of lenses to get the best shot.

I chat with my couples, make the laugh, tell them jokes, flirt outrageously in fact to get the warm natural smiles that make for amazing photographs.  Oh, and kissing.  My couples do a lot of kissing!!

As you can see from the images below I do spend more time editing a few select images – I call these my “Signature” collection.  It’ what I’m known for!

St Hotel & Country Club Engagement Photography Session

St. Pierre Hotel Engagement Photography Session with Sarah and Nick

Sarah and Nick are getting married at the fabulous St. Pierre Hotel & Country Club later this year (2015).  A small intimate wedding with only around 20 close family and guests.  It’s going to be a really magical experience for all concerned 🙂
