Sarah & Adam’s autumnal engagement shoot, Westonbirt Arboretum, Tetbury

Sarah & Adam wanted an autumnal themed pre-wedding photoshoot and since they’re getting married at the Egyptian Mill in Nailsworth the obvious place to me was just down the road from the venue: Westonbirt Arboretum.

Like most couples these guys were slightly apprehensive about having their photos taken, but after a few snaps they soon warmed up and really started enjoying themselves. 

We walked around the forest for over an hour, just chatting for the most part. The stunning autumnal colours delivered the most amazing backgrounds so when we saw something cool we’d stop to take a few shots then continue wandering.

I offer a complimentary engagement shoot just like this to each and every couple who book with me. I find it’s a great way to break the ice and build that all important rapport meaning I’m not a complete stranger on your wedding day. It’s also a great opportunity for me to find out about you so I can tailor my approach to produce the photos you really want.
