On Sunday I went out with Rebecca and Hamish to Hatfield Forest for their engagement shoot.
Hatfield Forest is a 403.2-hectare biological Site of Special Scientific Interest in Essex, three miles east of Bishop’s Stortford. It is also a National Nature Reserve and a Nature Conservation Review site. It is owned and managed by the National Trust.
They were such a fun-loving couple and it was a pleasure to spend time with them both and talk about the plans for their day.
It was lovely to work with this couple. They were so in love with each other and so it made all their photos look completely natural.
This is a very busy location, so the trick was to make it look like we were there alone. Timing is always important and it’s best on your wedding day to allow for a good amount of time for your photos. Otherwise, you’ll feel rushed and simply won’t enjoy the moment.
All of these photos are natural shots with minimal direction. Couples often worry about how they will look. They’re concerned that their photos will look false.
An engagement shoot is a great way to alleviate those fears!
