A few weeks ago I met up with the lovely Kelly & James again for their pre-shoot at the stunning Woodhall Manor in Woodbridge, Suffolk.
I first met Kelly & James… back in 2009 when Kelly knocked on my hotel door and handed me her diamond earrings!! …no I haven’t got a penchant for diamond earrings! …and granted it’s not the usual introduction when meeting a couple, but as you probably guessed I was kindly entrusted with passing these earrings on to her good friend Louisa for something ‘borrowed’ – who’s wedding I was shooting that morning, and I would of course be photographing her getting ready.
So a year or so later – Kelly & James got in contact with me and I’m happy to be shooting their forthcoming wedding! ……I can’t wait – I’ve got a feeling it’s going to be a really cute lovely day!
We first discussed the timings & schedule of the day over a cup of tea, and then headed out to look at some of the locations, trying to avoid the obvious ones in the manicured gardens etc. The lighting was pretty flat too say the least, not only that it was also an open day for the prospective couples to come and have a look – so plenty of other people were milling around too! …So after a few posing pointers and getting them to relax – we had a fun shoot on this autumnal day in amongst the leaves – though somehow I think we’ll leave that last location out from the actual day ;o)
See you both soon xx
