On a drizzly winter’s day, I ventured to my favourite spot – Hylands House & Park for Sophie and Dan’s engagement session.
I first met the couple at a wedding fair and we decided that an engagement session would be the perfect way to get a clear idea of my style before booking. These sessions are beneficial for both myself and the couple involved. Ahead of the wedding, it gives us the chance to chat about their big day, discussing their wedding photography and what they envision. Plus, it gives the couple some time in front of the camera, trying out different poses so that on they day, they are a little more comfortable, which definitely comes across in the end result.
Although the weather looked decidedly threatening, we started to move around the park, chatting about their plans and using the opportunity to grab some lovely photos of them together. The rain arrived as we made our way through the gardens, so we popped out again between showers, and even took a few in the rain.
We had some light drizzle so took cover under the trees, which still resulted in a lovely photo.
The little hut also provided us with some cover and nice photo opportunities.
Despite it being winter, the gardens are still full of colour, which makes it the perfect spot for engagement sessions, whatever time of year it is.
Even the rain didn’t put a dampener on the day! Sophie and Dan were happy to be photographed in the rain.
Afterwards, we headed to the cafe to seek some warmth and talked through my packages and options. A couple of days later they emailed to secure me as their photographer for their special day.
Sophie and Dan’s big day will take place in May, at a venue aptly named, That Amazing Place and I can’t wait!
