Here’s a great tip for your engagement photography: choose your favourite season to get photos you’ll love and cherish: how about waiting for cherry blossom in May, daffodils in April or buttercups in June? For now, a favourite time of year: this guest blog post is by Martin Price Photography. Sarah and Mark made a great decision to have their engagement shoot in Autumn… all those gorgeous colours, kicking leaves and some amazing pre-wedding images to treasure forever.
I am a big fan of engagement shoots. It’s surprising just how many people are nervous about having their photograph taken, so this is the perfect opportunity for couples to get used to being in front of the camera and for them to get to know their photographer better. This makes for much better photographs on the big day and is why I include an engagement shoot for all of my clients.
Sarah and Mark will be getting married in spring next year. For their engagement shoot they asked for an autumnal feel to the photographs. After I suggested a few options they picked Windsor, a town they often visit and one with so many great locations for photography.
The day of the shoot started with with a short snow flurry, but the weather brightened as the time for us to meet up approached. Although chilly the weather was perfect for the session. However, almost immediately after I’d pressed the camera shutter for the last image, the sky darkened and we made it back to the town centre just as the heavens opened. It gave us the perfect excuse to take shelter in a coffee shop and talk more about their plans for the big day.
Here are a few of the photos from the shoot. Pop over to my blog to see more.
