So wedding season is in full swing and the pre-wedding shoots are rolling in. They are such special moments. This is often the first time I actually get to meet my couples and it is just lush. It is a real chance to spend time together, get to know how we all work and what makes us tick. We get our flow going and the magic happens! Come the wedding, being photographed, strangely feels so much more normal and I am so lucky I get to share these intimate moments with you all.
So, on 29th April, Paul (my partner and second shooter) and I travelled to the BEAUT of a venue in Chagford, Dartmoor called Monks Withecombe to meet the gorgeous Rob & Lisa for their pre-wed shoot at their chosen wedding venue. Nicky the owner welcomed us with open arms, a warm log fire and mugs of tea and biscuits. I honestly did not want to leave. The venue is just stunning. It speaks for itself and has a beamed art gallery, gorgeous gardens stretching far and wide and stunning out-buildings and quirky features. Literally, a wedding photographers dream come true!
Rob and Lisa took us on a tour around the winding gardens and we did some shooting. It was just a delight to get to see the venue where the big day is going to happen in August. So exciting. A delicious Sunday shoot was had and we had the added extra of getting to meet the gorgeous old boy Beau the golden retriever. Before we left, Rob let me know that Lisa had just said to him that she just knows they have chosen the right photographers!
Rob and Lisa received their images via their own online gallery which they can download, favourite and share as they wish. I received this glorious message afterwards which made my heart glow ♥
‘Thank you for our pre-wedding photos – they look amazing! We had a fab time and you helped us feel very relaxed in front of the camera, which I certainly didn’t think was possible. I loved how you captured the beauty of the venue as well, I’m so excited to have you both as our wedding photographers x’
I can’t ask for much more. THIS IS WHY I AM SO IN LOVE WITH MY JOB!
As always, I would love to hear from you so say Hey here..
