Coming soon! James and Kirstie’s Wedding

May 4th, 2011

Just a quick lit­tle post to show off my next cou­ple who were mar­ried a few months back in Westonbirt.
James and Kirstie are a fine exam­ple of a real­ly fun cou­ple who were a lit­tle uncom­fort­able in front of the camera.

My engage­ment shoots are rarely any­thing stuffy or for­mal. We’ll usu­al­ly start off with a cof­fee or beer or two and chat about pret­ty much any­thing apart from pictures.
A cou­ple of weeks ago I was con­sid­er­ing not offer­ing engage­ment shoots any­more as I felt as though they weren’t par­tic­u­lar­ly con­ducive to my pho­to­jour­nal­is­tic style.
I would always adver­tise these shoots as a good way to get used to pos­ing and hav­ing your pic­ture taken.
Then I remem­bered that actu­al­ly, these shoots aren’t about pic­tures but instead about build­ing up a rap­port with my couples.

Yes, my cou­ples get a few nice pic­tures at the end of the day and often they’ll appear at the wed­ding in the form of a guest­book or what­ev­er, but what is more sat­is­fy­ing to me is that by the end of the shoot and in time for their wed­ding my Mr and Mrs can total­ly relax with me on their big day.
Can you imag­ine hav­ing a stranger with a cam­era at your wed­ding all day? No, nor me.

So, James and Kirstie. Thank you for being a text book cou­ple. You did just fine, honest.
I’ll post their wed­ding in the next cou­ple of days and yes, it’s anoth­er snowy wedding.

    Joseph, this is gor­geous! Gor­geous light, loca­tion and the inter­ac­tion between them is cap­tured beautifully.

    Beau­ti­ful light and ton­ing to the image — real­ly adds to the feel of the loca­tion and the can­did moment shared between J & K. Look for­ward to see­ing the rest of the images :)
