Natural Pre-Wedding Photography

Engagement Photography at National Trust Stowe


Last month I had speed light training and also headed out to the very beautifull National Trust park in Stowe and met with a very loved up couple, Aniko and Ant for a training pre-wedding photography session. As I mentioned on my previous family portrait blog post, I am having photography training and business mentoring with Kate Hopewell-Smith, Brent Kirkman and Becky Foote from Training byLumiere.

I spent around two to three hours with the couple, and as before with Kate and Brent on hand for the entire time offering advice and guidance. Aniko brought a beautiful selection from her wardrobe so she could do multiple changes. As well as achieving a gallery of couple images, Aniko, a fellow photographer, also wanted to some head shots suitable for her website and business profile.

Aniko and Ant had been together for ten years, married for five. I would have believed they were newly together witnessing the love and adoration they showed one another. It was really lovely to capture their feelings and give them images to cherish.

On the day Kate showed us how she would select location due to light and as you can see from below with the sun setting we were able to create images with lovely back light and shadows.

I am super pleased with the results. All the images from the day taken by me, and also the other mentees and Kate will be passed on to them.

If you are interested in modelling for Kate and Brent’s training days I would suggest following their Facebook page to see any opportunities.

If you would like me to photograph you as a couple with your partner, maybe engagement, pre-wedding or wedding, please get in touch via the contact form. I look forward to meeting you!
