The day of Catherine & Charlie’s Engagement Photoshoot in Lancashire was one of those lovely on-off rainy days so it was touch and go whether it was going ahead or not, but then at the last moment the lovely Lancashire weather cleared up!
Catherine & Charlie booked me for their Wedding next year at the beautiful Low Hall in the Lake District. A fairly new wedding venue near Cockermouth in Cumbria and surrounded by the most beautiful scenery, i’m so excited to photograph their Wedding here.
Engagement Photoshoot in Lancashire
We met up at a stunning reservoir in Rossendale for their Engagement Photoshoot and had so much fun wandering around.
Lot’s of my couples ask if they need an Engagement Photoshoot, it’s a completely optional addition, many couples decide not to opt for an Engagement Session as they are camera shy and don’t enjoy posing. In fact most of my couples tell me they are very nervous about being photographed.
If you ARE camera shy Engagement Photoshoots are actually a good idea! I know what you’re thinking, why would you want to subject yourself to the awkwardness twice? Well because it’s a great chance for us to get to know each other, being more comfortable around me really does help when it comes to the big day. Engagement Photoshoots are really good fun, i’m full of bad jokes and little tricks to get you to relax with each other and being a natural photographer means there won’t be loads of fake smiles and awkward posing. By the end of the session you’ll have completely forgotten that you are usually camera shy and can then relax about Photography on the day knowing that you don’t need to dread the portraits! You’ll also get some lovely portraits of the two of you which you can even use as part of the wedding decor.
Catherine and Charlie, like most of my couples started out feeling a little nervous about being photographed but within moments were laughing away with each other and I think they look adorable together! Here’s a few of my favourites from their Engagement Photoshoot in Lancashire.
