Belmonte Palazzo Engagement Shoot: Stephanie and Barry

Even before their wedding in gorgeous Santa Maria di Castellabate, Salerno, on the Cliento coast of Italy  Barry and Stephanie fell in love with the area and for sure will be returning.  We were staying in the wonderful Belmonte Palace – were Sandy had shot at last year on the Secret Retreat Italian wedding workshop. The Palace is so handy for the town centre with all its restaurants and also for the beach with its own private access.

So we showed our couple around and took the opportunity to get a few shots to get them used to being photographed on their wedding day just two days later.  The grounds of the Belmonte Palace are a green oasis from the town and beach so provided a perfect contrast to their wedding images we would capture later on in the week.  It also gave Stephanie and Barry a little breathing space from the family and friends staying with them in their villa…always good to have a little “us time”.

Enjoy a few of their images here..if you would like an engagement shoot whether locally or co-inciding with travels we’d love to hear from you.

Charley and Chris Relaxed Natural Engagement Shoot

I was present at Elegance Bridal Birthday charity event, when host Pauline Daniels rang the lucky winner of their fabulous wedding dress prize..on speaker phone too!

Well it was a lovely surprise when Charley contacted us  just a few days later requesting a relaxed natural engagement shoot for her and Chris. Well we were only to happy to oblige! Their chosen location was Brotherton Park, a place where Charley used to go often for walks with her Granddad, sadly no longer here.  A tree planted in his memory made for a poignant picture…would make for a great project for Charley to visit his tree once  a year and chart its growth progress and remember fond memories.  A special place is always a good choice, it has memories for you to reflect on and to enjoy with your loved one.

Charley and Chris are a super couple, very natural and relaxed with each other, obviously adore each other!  Can’t you just tell from these pics! (full gallery on-line).
Thank you again Charley and Chris for asking us to capture some special pictures and we wish you well with your wedding planning and all the happiness for the future.

Evelyn and Lewis: Pre Wedding Shoot Port Sunlight

Evelyn and Lewis chose historic village of  Port Sunlight for their pre wedding shoot – first time Lewis had been there and they loved it!
The Dell at Port Sunlight is always a popular choice for a shoot and one we also enjoy this location., so much choice and always different in the changin seasons.
Pixsmiths Creative Photography are so  looking forward to their summer wedding at Crabwall Manor.
..these two are just so meant for each other- you can see in these pics..and how gorgeous is Evelyn’s ring!
So happy when Evelyn said she’s shown her grandmother the images and she got all emotional – just a taster of them here. Enjoy x

Wirral Pre Wedding Shoot: Laura and Andy

Wirral Pre Wedding Shoot: Laura and Andy

 Fun and Laughter at Sheldrakes Boatyard

Its pre wedding shoot season! We just love engagement shoots at Sheldrakes and Thursaston
so good  catching up with our couples before their  big day, hearing how the wedding plans are going, what details are being sorted etc..

Its settles any  preconceived nerves about being posed..but hey we are really relaxed and not overly posey.
We much rather you have fun and interact with each other whilst we capture the action and reaction.

This was just the ticket for Laura and Andy as we met at Thurstaston country Park and then onto Sheldrakes boatyard for a few more shots
– wellies are always a good idea here, especially if tide has just gone out!
Good place for a strong coffee too on the terrace overlooking the Dee Estuary……oh and it made for an inspired impromptu ring shot.
Looking forward to their wedding in May – not long to go!

Sophie and Graham Engagement Shoot

Sophie and Graham Engagement Shoot

Sophie and Graham have know each other for quite  a few years now, since school I believe

Well they’ve decided its about time to tie the knot!  So happy they have booked us to capture their day at Inglewood Manor in September
We were running short of days for their engagement shoot and as luck would have it weather was not great, with rain on and off.
Still Graham and Sophie were great sports and embraced it with umbrellas – so thank you guys!

Colours tend to look fresher after rain and I think we got some great shots for them, plenty for their guest book – currently very popular with our couples.
Enjoy here a selection of images we captured near the Boat Museum Ellesmere Port and a few in Port Sunlight.

Hadlow Road Engagement Shoot Photography: Natalie and Brian

Hadlow Road Engagement Shoot Photography: Natalie and Brian

A Divine Appointment for Brian and Natalie at Hadlow Road

 

Tonight we had an engagement session booked at Hadlow Road Station with Brian and Natalie.
A place special to them.
…it was forecast severe weather, winds and rain 🙁
We really need to get some shots as its not too long to the wedding and they are having one of our beautiful guest books made from their images
Plus for personal reasons its important for Natalie to see these images sooner rather than later and the reason for this super fast blog post.
We needed a miracle…a friend prayed…..

…we found a dryish area under a tree, knowing the ticket office closes at 5pm normally..and we arrived at 6pm
I checked on the offchance it was open…the park warden was (somehow !) 90 minutes late in closing up…our blessing!
Not only that but she invited us into the actual office, usually viewed from behind the screen to take some pictures.
Plus the old £1 notes made for an unusual pixsmiths signature ring shot.

Thank you Brain and Natalie for sticking with the plan.
We will get some more pictures outside in better conditions but are happy with what we managed tonight in half an hour or so already x
