We really enjoy engagement photography sessions on warm, sunny, summer evenings in the Peak District, and from the feedback our couples give us, they do too! The photograph shown above is from a photo shoot with our engaged couple which took place a few weeks before their wedding day at the Kenwood Hall Hotel. It was taken at one of our favourite Derbyshire engagement photography locations not too far over the border from our native Sheffield. The photograph together with many others from this engagement photography session was taken near to the Surprise View car park at the entrance to the Hope Valley. The wonderful Hope Valley is something we have incorporated into our wedding and engagement photography on several occasions before and after this picture was taken. It is a wonderful place to visit for photography assignments and we love the opportunity to be in such a wonderful part of the country.
We have been lucky enough to get the view of the Hope Valley into wedding photographs from very near here on a few occasions. There is also the opportunity to stroll down the hill to a location at the top of Padley Gorge for more photo opportunities. We have been and visited this wonderful location on a number of occasions now for both wedding photographs as well as engagement photography sessions. The whole area is so tranquil and the views are perfect and was the choice for some photographs between the wedding ceremony and wedding reception for this couple on their wedding day, yet another wonderful area for wedding and engagement photography very close to Sheffield but far enough away to be different, we are so lucky to live where and when we do!Keywords: Derbyshire (231), engagement photography (345). 1/400; f/3.5; ISO 640; 102.0 mm.
