Its not too long til Kathryn and Chris get married. So time last Sunday for a catch up and a pre wed shoot -New Brighton was their chosen location. It was the final of the World cup Final so teh bars were a little busy!
More importantly it was Kathryn’s birthday – what a lovely way to spend an hour or so by getting some gorgeous images with your partner. We used a birthday card with cake motif as an impromptu background for a ring shot. Chris is a trained photographer himself so a real compliment that they booked us for the wedding.
The shoot was late afternoon, still gorgeous light, and we were accompanied by their fur baby Mac. Now Mac is going to play an important role on the day…but we will save that for the wedding blog. Kathryn and Chris was a joy to see how happy you are being with each other, naturally relaxed and fun-loving. A joy to capture some relaxed memories
Speedy editing from this shoot and gallery was uploaded Monday night! A received well and here a re a few of the highlights. The complete pre wed gallery will be supplied with their wedding images usb. Enjoy x
Wirral Engagement Shoot A stroll around Royden Pak with Laura & Dan
We dodged the rain for this lovely Wirral engagement shoot with Laura and Dan. An hour before wet ..and later on in the evening it rained. We had a perfect window of weather – not too hot/bright but fresh colours after the rain made it just right…plus very few people around so even better! Lots of colour and features in the walled garden, The laburnum arch is almost ready, some good coverage for this shoot though, always a popular location. Just a brief stop here as rangers were closing up early but still plenty of other areas in the park to explore. The heron on the mere even made an appearance for us!
Their daughter Rebecca is going to be a flower girl for their summer wedding next year. …they thought she might be shy and would be a good idea to bring her along to get to know us. Well she was far from shy, a model in the making …almost stole the show! she Loved the camera and the camera her!
Laura and Dan were just so natural, and a treat for Dan’s birthday too. We really can’t wait for their wedding ..they are going to be a dream> Its not til next summer but Laura and Dan have taken advantage of a weddign fayre special and have one of our fabulous weddign apps where guest can RSVP, save the date to their calendars and see the schedule and locations for thee wedding. Their app has now been updated with highlights from this Wirral engagement shoot Its a useful wedding app that will that will continue to be added too after the wedding and be a lovely digital keepsake of their wedding journey.
It was a fab session and so many images captured ..here just a few we hope you enjoy. All their engagement images will be provided with their wedding images on our prettily packaged USB
Just before we escaped to Mexico for a break before wedding season started in earnest we took the opportunity to take Emma and Chris on their engagement shoot in historic Port Sunlight. It was a delightful spring Sunday afternoon with the crocuses in full bloom at the Dell making for a gorgeous splash of purple colour. Pink blossom on the trees was yet more evidence of spring.
These sessions are always a good way to get to know each other and discover any particular likes or dislikes for photos and we think Emma and Chris really enjoyed their session with us. Here are a few pics from the gallery that they will receive on our usb after their wedding in May – which will soon be upon us and one we really look forward to.
Catching up with some engagemet sessions still! This time its Kath and Peter’s turn for a pre wed shoot enjoying a stroll around West Kirby marina and beach.
Not long to their July weddding – a local affair at the URC West Kirby where we had the pleasure of shooting their friend Dan and Sam’s wedding – in fact Dan will be best man and Sam matron of honour. Reception will follow at Inglewood Manor – oneof our favourite venues.
It was a bit of a grey day but hopefully these images cheered them up so enjoy a few of their images from their session with us.
Pete had a hand in designing Kath’s ring – making sure it included some swirls which she loves!
If!s no secret that Royden Park is one of our favourite places to take our couples for a pre wedding shoot. Something different every time as the garden changes with the seasons and new projects there from the amazing team of volunteers. For Sarah and Stu’s session the Laburnum arch was in full bloom and was a stunning setting. Lots of pretty areas in the garden and then onto the nearby mere for some more delightful shots. Really looking forward to their wedding at Nunsmere Hall Hotel in September with its own gorgeous gardens and mere. Enjoya few highlights.
We were already booked for Lauren and Paul’s wedding day – such a shame but we know they have an excellent photographer for their day. Anyway Lauren’s fabulous sister had the idea to book a pre wedding sesssion and to have a guest signing book made with her favourite images as a present for her – what a fantastic gift!
So we had an afternoon on Bidston Hill (fortunately just before they had the fires up there) and had such a fun time we completely forgot the clock and were almost locked in the car park. The yellow gorse and the windmill provided such a scenic backdrop for them. They were spoilt for choice for the images for thir book but we love that problem!
We know you will have a fantastic day at Hillbark Lauren and Paul but happy we could share a little part in the run up to your big day. Here are a few highlights of our afternoon.
Always lovely to share such wonderful feedback too! – This was Lauren’s post on our Pixsmiths Facebook page
