This evening I had the pleasure of photographing Lucie & John during their pre-wedding photoshoot in Museum Gardens in York. It was a particularly calm evening, ideal for photography, and very pleasant for both Lucie & John to explore the grounds of Museum Gardens whilst I stayed in the background for the most part to capture some lovely photographs of the two of them enjoying each others company.
As a York Wedding Photographer I personally feel Museum Gardens offers a great variety of locations to choose from in photographing either an engagement shoot or for wedding photography. If the gardens are particularly busy there are quiet areas so as to not intrude on others enjoying the gardens, as well as different styles of location from well manicured formal gardens to secluded areas, to lovely stone brickwork, to more rugged areas. The different areas of the gardens help in generating varying styles of photography to suit all tastes.
As you will see from the photographs below, some areas are more suited to black and white, while other areas are very colourful. I personally feel that if a photograph has nice complimentary colours, why change it. Having said that certain photographs work well in black and white as black and white is somewhat timeless in its style. It gives a different feel to a photograph, and I personally like black and white photography. Some examples of which are below.
Lucie & John were great to work with and photograph. They were relaxed throughout the photoshoot, and I am sure they will have benefited from the session to help them feel at ease on their wedding day. They are to marry in the next few weeks and I am very much looking forward to photographing their wedding. In the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their engagement shoot for you to enjoy.
