For Stef and Gaz’s engagement shoot we took a wander around Wrockwardine Village, where we both live. I love doing really local weddings and engagement shoots. Stef and Gaz only live a short walk from me, so I grabbed my camera and popped down to their house. We started the shoot how every good shoot starts, with a glass of gin and tonic. I always advise my couples, if you’re feeling a bit nervous about having a shoot, a little bit of dutch courage always helps! I had a shoot with Luke last year and was nervous I had a small glass of wine beforehand and it definitely did the trick!
Stef and Gaz being so nearby meant that we were able to wait until the light was just right to shoot in. Good light is really unpredictable, I never know if it’s going to appear during an engagement shoot as they’re usually booked a few weeks in advance. The evening, during golden hour, is always a great time to do any shoot. We were treated to the most gorgeous light for Stef and Gaz’s shoot! We didn’t have a specific destination in mind for their engagement session, we just took a wander around the village and stopped every now and then to take photographs. Having lived here my entire life I know all the good little spots for photographs, but as usual this is totally dependant on the light.
We ended the shoot in a rapeseed field, which is a gorgeous bright yellow crop which flowers around April. I always try to use the fields for a shoot every year because they’re so beautiful, especially around sunset. I was lucky enough to have one next door to my house this year so we didn’t have to go very far to use it! I’ve normally always got a favourite shot from any shoot, however from Stef and Gaz’s engagement shoot it was basically impossible to choose a favourite, I loved them all!
