I arranged a mini photo shoot with Dave & Laura so that they could see how I worked and get a feel for me as a photographer for their wedding to be held Summer 2015. So this was kind of a consultation/shoot with them in Rochester. I always love a trip to Rochester for its quirky little shops and vintage stores so any excuse lol!
Straight away through emails, we got on great! Laura's first email to me enquiring about the wedding said how she loved the fact that I loved Spongebob and was a Ninja as she was a secret Ninja too! A good start haha.
I had arranged to pop over to them for around 2:30pm on a Sunday. With all the horrible weather that we had been having recently we were all keeping our fingers crossed and thankfully, the sun was shining that day! We timed it so they we would have a good blast of sunshine behind them and headed to a small woodland area called Rede Common around 5 minutes drive from their home. They were just after natural couple shots, we aimed at being out for around 30 minutes then heading back to chat about their wedding. They already seemed very relaxed and this definitely showed in the photographs. I mainly got shots of them walking along, holding hands, making them laugh and them just generally cuddling up and acting the couple.
Once finished, we got back to the house and sat down to a lovely cup of coffee in a Sponge Bob MUG! Amazing lol. We spoke about the wedding and what they wanted from the day. They both seemed very happy to proceed after I showed them a few of the shots on the camera but they would confirm once I had sent over the edited images.
Once home, I got straight onto editing these and emailed them over to Laura and received a reply that they had received the email but were in Nando's but on her phone the photos looked amazing! They both did love the photos and have since booked their wedding with us for next year!
