Engagement photography sessions, which are sometimes also known as pre-wedding photo shoots are something we offer to all our couples. These are a wonderful time for us all to get to know each other a little better, which makes being photographed on your wedding day a lot more relaxing! We like to approach these in an easy going way. We want you to be relaxed and above all to be yourselves. There is little in the way of arranged poses, we probably don't know you that well and trying to arrange you into some bizarre, contorted pose just because we think it looks good is not our style. We want you to be you, stand or sit or hold each other as you would normally do and to be yourselves in front of the camera.
This engagement photo shoot took place at the absolutely amazing Bolsover Castle in Derbyshire. This picture was taken on the castle walls just after a heavy downpour (it was December after all!) and our couple really stand out against the stormy sky almost worthy of Turner, all helped a little by the application of a little off-camera flash! We had a wonderful time photographing this lovely couple, and their wedding a couple of months later was one of the nicest we have ever been invited to photograph, a wonderful couple with some amazing family and friends.Keywords: Bolsover Castle (10), Derbyshire (79), engagement photography (116).
