The lovely Charlotte and Theo are getting married later this month at one of my favourite and most visited venues, Norwood Park. I am so excited to be their wedding photographer! This wedding is going to be super pretty, with two graphic designers at the helm it couldn’t be anything else! When it came time to book their engagement session, the pair chose the beautiful village of Bakewell in the heart of Derbyshire, the perfect spot for some natural, relaxed and fun engagement photos.
Natural, Relaxed and Fun Engagement Photos
You may have had a browse through my engagement session gallery and thought how relaxed and happy everyone looks, and you feel sure that you are the only person who feels nervous and awkward in front of the camera. Well you’re not! Really! You may be surprised but about ninty nine percent of my couples say they feel nervous and awkward about being photographed. That’s nearly all of my couples! So how do you receive a collection of natural, relaxed and fun engagement photos?
Don’t panic, you will look as happy and relaxed as all of those gorgeous couples you have seen throughout my galleries. How? Because I make sure we have plenty to chat about, things to do and general things to help you to relax and take your mind off the camera and focus on just enjoying some time together. I don’t really do ‘posing’, I firmly believe that everyone is different and trying to squeeze couples into certain poses just makes the whole experience awkward, instead I give gentle direction that will allow you to react in a natural way that tells the story of who you are.
Bakewell engagement shoot
Theo & Charlotte chose the beautiful Bakewell for their engagement session and we had a great time just wandering through the quaint streets and through pretty countryside. Theo & Charlotte even brought along a padlock to fix onto the little iron bridge that crosses the river in Bakewell; it is said that attaching a padlock engraved with their initials to the bridge and throwing the key into the river their love will be locked forever.
