Often an engagement session was the first opportunity we had to get to know each other. I wanted to find out what it is that made this alternative couple click. Pretty early on, we were able to reminisce about a mutual love of an old rock music.
Growing up, Tommy had been part of a local Milton Keynes band. Having met when they were teens, they really did know each other inside out. In the beginning they were both a little camera shy. After a funny conversation about facebook stalking and the channelling of our 00’s teen memories, they quickly became naturals. The weather wasn’t ideal but that meant we had the park to ourselves. who else is crazy enough to go out in the rain to take photos? the couple chose Rushmere park as the setting for their engagement session. The vast woodland left plenty of room to explore.
I was recommended to Tommy and Holly by a mutual friend and fellow photographer. As a wedding photographer it is quite the compliment to be recommended by professional photographers from other fields.
The approach with this Engagement Session was a relaxed natural style. Lots of textures! Really trying to draw the viewer into the woodland whilst also communicating a perfectly matched couple. The session was close to Christmas so we decided to design a little Christmas card design.
