As the nights are drawing in now and everything is starting to feeling cold and wintery I thought it would be really lovely to look back at Amy and Jay’s pre wedding and engagement session from July as you can’t help but feel all warm and happy when looking at them! The photographs from their session just completely sum up our beautiful English summer evenings, not to mention Amy and Jay are just the absolute cutest couple!
Pre wedding and engagement photography sessions are the perfect way to prepare for your wedding day photography, and they lead to some beautiful photographs of the two of you too! They are a chance for us to get to know each other a bit better and they also help you to realise that having your photograph taken is not a scary thing after all, and is actually really quite fun! Sometimes we will meet at your wedding venue, but we can also meet at your favourite location if you would like to, as long as it is fairly local to Derby.
I met up with Amy and Jay at 7.30pm one warm evening in late July and the light was just absolutely perfect! Using my special games to help couples relax in my presence, I was able to help them connect in a natural and relaxed way and so we were able to create these beautiful photographs without any stiff posing. Perfect!
The other great thing about these sessions is that you can then use the photographs that you choose on your wedding day if you would like to. Some people use their favourite image in a signing frame for instance, others use them to display along with other photographs of themselves taken over the years.
