Whinlatter Lake District Pre Wedding Shoot – Natalie & Philip; As we approached Whinlatter Forest, a gorgeous spot in the obscenely beautiful Lake District, the clouds began to cover the still evening sky, and spots of rain began to fall.
It was the night for Natalie & Phillip’s pre-wedding shoot, and after waiting so long for it, and travelling so far to this gorgeous place, we carried on regardless. Thankfully, the rain stayed light for the majority of the hour we spent trekking the forest trails, and we stuck to the trees for cover. Natalie and Phillip were just the best – a giggly, initially nervous pair who were up for anything. Climbing off the paths and up into the tree-lined hills, walking up and down wet rocky paths, and trusting us to spot the most beautiful light to photograph them in.
The point of the pre-wedding shoot is never primarily the pictures. Although we do love to make some beautiful images for you too. We love getting to know you during these sessions, seeing how you are as a couple. Finding out how your plans for your big day are coming along. We want you to see how we work. That your wedding day is not a photo-shoot, and to get rid of any preconceptions that you have to smile at the camera, ever.
After an hour of chatting and shooting with Natalie & Phillip, we really got a sense of their fun personalities. We showed them that they can just be together and share a moment, forget all about us, and our results will be even better because of it.
So, what did we get up to? View the slideshow or scroll to view 🙂
