You know when you hear someone’s plans and they are describing everything that makes you excited? Meet Stevie and Ant, they are that couple. They get married this year and I’m so excited to share their images with you before they’ve even been captured.
I was down in Kent for the weekend shooting an amazing wedding, when Stevie suggested meeting up on the Sunday, whilst I was there. An engagement shoot was the best plan and Stevie mentioned Leeds Castle. I was sold.
Samantha and Jonathan are one of the amazing couples I was fortunate enough to meet at a Mythe Barn open day. When an email landed in my inbox from them, I was over the moon, plus I got to see them again over coffee to discuss their plans.
When Sam asked me about an engagement shoot and suggested Cannock Chase for the location, I got a liiiittle bit excited. Who wouldn’t when the Gruffalo trail is also there 😉
As I stepped out of the car, the heavens opened and it was a good excuse for us to grab a drink in the café there and talk over plans, whilst we waited for the rain to stop.
Cannock Chase did not disappoint and capturing Sam and Jonathan laughing together was a dream. I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was there, a dream setting perfect for capturing dream photographs.
I will definitely be heading back with the family!
Jennie and Matt are getting married next month but just like many of my couples, they were a bit nervous about having their photo taken.
I HATE having my picture taken, so can completely relate to these feelings and this also helps me put my couples at ease I would hope.
After thinking for a while about where we could go for the shoot, The Hundred House in Telford was mentioned. I had never been there before but had heard about the wonderful gardens they had there and it didn’t disappoint.
If you want somewhere to go with your family for a drink, the pub itself is lovely and quirky. I also saw they held weddings there! Seriously check it out but in the mean time, here is a taster to their gardens.
One thing I love to receive are ‘Jenny emails’. We could potentially send them all day. If we are not doing that then we are pinning our favourite pictures as we have a passion for Pinterest.
The next thing for them to plan was their Engagement shoot and they wanted one very important person involved, their
crazy lovely dog Humphrey.
We headed to the gorgeous Bradgate park, as Humphrey would be in his element here while we took in the beautiful scenery and started shooting the moment.
Firstly though, we had to do a bit of walking. I’m very glad I didn’t do my hair that day that’s for sure. After the burning had stopping in my chest we found some beautiful spots to get down to work.
I hope you like them 🙂
