Lydia and Terry came to see us one evening for their Engagement Shoot. First of all we caught up on all the details of their Wedding Day at Layer Marney in a few weeks time. Happy with all the timings and requirements we then went out to take a few pictures of Lydia and Terry.
It was nice to see Angela and Steve again one evening recently. After catching up with all the details of their Wedding, we went for a walk to take a few pictures of them.Their Church Wedding at All Saints Church, Springfield is followed by their Reception at Crabbs Barn Kelvedon, later in the Summer. Angela and Steve are active dancers so a couple of shots using their talents was not to be missed!
Seeing Louise and Gary again a few months ago at Crabbs Barn Open Day they asked if they could have their pre-Wedding pictures taken at Louise’s Parents’ home.The reason being they wanted some pictures later in the year with the cherry blossom. We were happy with that, so it was left with Louise and Gary getting in touch with us when the blossom was out. This they did! Louise’s Parents had such a lovely garden so we used the setting for some other pictures as well. We had a nice time taking the pictures and chatting about their Wedding. Louise and Gary’s Wedding at Crabbs Barn in the summer will be extra special to us as we have known Gary since he was 5 years old and is one of our son’s friends.
It was nice to meet Andrea and Simon again at Flatford for their pre-wedding pictures and meeting. We met them early evening at Flatford Mill, which was convenient for us all and Flatford Mill offers a variety of settings for some nice pictures. This location is special to Andrea and Simon as this is where the Marriage Proposal occurred! We were very happy with the results! Andrea and Simon are having a Church Wedding followed by their Wedding Reception at Jimmy’s Farm. Their Wedding will be a first for us at Jimmy’s Farm and we are looking forward to it.
David and I prefer to get to know our couples a little bit better before their Wedding Day so we enjoy meeting them at a convenient time and place. We met up with Tracy and Ben one afternoon a few weeks ago at Hadleigh Country Park. Deciding to go for a walk and take some pictures, first of all, was a good call, it was dry and bright and not too windy. By the time we had finished we were windswept, so it was nice to stop for a hot drink and a chat! Tracy and Ben are getting married in the summer at The Lawn, Rochford.
We met Rebecca and Michael one Sunday morning at their home in the Autumn last year. Deciding to take a walk along Surrey Docks on the bank of the Thames and then on to a local park for their pre-wedding pictures. It turned out to be a lovely morning and the walk was a good idea. The autumn leaves were just starting to colour adding another dimension to the pictures. After taking some pictures we stopped off for a coffee and a chat about their Wedding at Gosfield Hall.
We met Jade and Andrew one afternoon in the Autumn last year for their Engagement pictures at Highwoods Country Park, Colchester. It was nice to meet them again, and talk as we walked around the woods. As well as taking the pictures we chatted about their forthcoming Wedding at Woodhall Manor, Suffolk in the Spring this year. The Engagement session is always a great way to get to know our clients ahead of the big day! Quite often we’ll use the opportunity to go to an area we have not previously been to or try a new piece of equipment or technique.
Wimpole Hall, Cambridge, holds special memories for Laura and Mark , so they asked if they could have their pre-wedding pictures taken there. We were more than happy to do this, as it also gave us the opportunity of checking out the Church, where they are to be married and onto the Reception Venue. It was a nice day, a lovely walk and a superb backdrop for their pictures.
Checking out a new to us church and venue lets us sort out where to park and meet the others we may have to work with, the vicar etc, along with where we may be taking pictures on the day. Although we have the experience to make it up on the day it is always better to know in advance where practical!
One evening recently we met Vicki and Jonathan in Maldon for their Pre-Wedding Photo session. Their Wedding is soon at Spains Hall, Finchingfield, so it was nice to catch up with them and be updated on their plans. A nice evening for their pre-wedding photos.
It was a lovely evening when we met Sarah and Chris at Maldon Quay for their pre-wedding pictures. After chatting about their forthcoming Wedding Day at the Reid Rooms, we went for a walk around the park and found a few interesting places for their pictures. We like the challenge to going to different places to see what we can see and find for varied pictures. We particularly liked the shot in the shelter with the sun making a diagonal line to make a great composition.
