It was a late summer’s evening in Richmond Park when I shot this set for a gorgeous couple, H & N,  who were celebrating their first wedding anniversary. We had glorious weather, balmy, sunny, and absolutely brilliant with natural light. We spent about an hour and a half walking through the park, stopping at random landscapes set among the park’s ancient trees. The pastoral vibe was charming, providing the couple with natural “benches” (like these logs, below) and rustic avenues.

I’m looking forward to featuring their wedding later in the year, here on the blog. Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoyed the afternoon that made them happen.

… puppy love …

11 August 2012

Its not often when you meet someone and feel that you have known them all your life. That is what happened when I met C+E on our first meeting – it was just meant to be a simple consultation but we ended up talking and laughing and getting very excited about their wedding plans! When the time came to hold their engagement shoot, they decided to hold it somewhere that meant so much to the both of them – at C’s family home just outside the M25, where we were surrounded by gorgeous fields, had amazing sunshine and even had two cheeky and super playful black labs join us in the fun. It was such an amazing session – we visited their actual wedding venue – an incredible 10 minute walk from their home, the pups swam in the nearby lake (I even accidentally dunked my long-suffering light meter into the water – although it has seen considerably worse!) and we even fed C’s mum’s rescue chickens – they were re-growing their feathers and seemed so happy in their new home!

As always, this was all shot on my favourite film – Fuji 400H and Ilford 3200 and this time processed on our home soil by a great UK lab – Peak Imaging!

Enjoy! xxx
