Pre Wedding Engagement photography – Trentham Gardens, Staffordshire


 

It’s been a while since I have posted on the blog. Shame on me! The summer has been joyfully busy and I have been having fun with some fantastic photo shoots in the studio as well as some really cool and quirky weddings to photograph.

 

Let’s kick things off with a recent engagement photo shoot with Gemma & Craig. I first met this lovely couple in early February this year when they came to the studio to have a chat about photographing their wedding at Moddershall Oaks in Staffordshire. We talked about what they wanted from me on the day and what I do best. They totally got my style and relaxed and informal approach to wedding photography and what they liked and disliked about certain aspects of general wedding photography matched my own opinions so we were refreshingly on the same page.

As part of their wedding day photography package they had included a complimentary engagement photo shoot at a location of their choice. Engagement photo shoots are a great way for myself and the couple to spend a little more time together, getting to know one another and to feel more comfortable in each other’s presence. They are also good practice for the wedding day photography portraits of just the couple. Gemma & Craig confessed to being not particularly comfortable in front of the camera, which is totally fine as I explained that most of my portrait photography is not about posing or acting in a certain way but a much more natural a free flowing experience. In fact we tend to find ourselves chatting more than photographing on most occasions.

Gemma & Craig chose the location for the photo shoot, which was at Trentham Gardens in Stoke, Staffordshire. The location for the photo shoot was special to them as they spend a lot of time at Trentham Gardens with their two children. I have to confess that although I grew up in Stone in Staffordshire, which is a mere eight miles away. I have never actually ventured into the Gardens themselves and I was delighted with how incredibly beautiful and well managed they were.

I won’t keep you waiting any longer. Here is a small selection of images from Gemma & Craig’s Engagement photo shoot at Trentham Gardens in Staffordshire. Stay tuned for their wedding photography preview coming soon…
