What a great evening I had with Helen & Michael at Roundhay Park for their engagement shoot last night. With warm weather, only a handful of people about, and a photogenic location, the photographs taken really captured some lovely moments between Helen & Michael. We took time to photograph in the water garden, which really is idyllic, as well as using the treelined walks and bandstand. Using the natural light and a combination of both black & white and colour, the photographs produced are both artistic and creative with a natural style that is indicative of the style of photography I like to take. It is so nice if a couple can be themselves and are natural together, rather than me giving them a lot of direction and dominating the photoshoot. On their wedding day a couple are much more likely to be relaxed and enjoy their day, than if they are dominated by a photographer. The engagement shoot in that respect is great for use to get to know each other better, so that on Helen & Michael’s wedding day they can relax knowing that I will discreetly capture their day in an artistic and creative manner with the minimum of disruption.
Below is a selection of photographs from their pre-shoot for you to enjoy.
