I had the very great pleasure of meeting with Maria and Craig for the pre-wedding photoshoot at Ampleforth Abbey and College on Friday. It was lovely to see them again and to meet their daughter, and spend some time with then in the beautiful surroundings of Ampleforth. Ampleforth is an ideal location for a pre-wedding photoshoot, with picturesque views and scenery, allowing a couple time to relax and enjoy some quality time together. The pre-wedding photoshoot is similar to the time I have with a couple on their wedding day to capture just the two of them together. There is more time than on their wedding day, but it allows them time to relax and get used to having their photograph taken. I can also offer advice on what looks natural so that on their wedding day they are much more relaxed having their photograph taken, and need me to give them less direction so they can concentrate on enjoying their wedding day. Maria and Craig are great together and needed very little guidance. As a result I captured some lovely moments between the two of them.
I very much look forward to photographing their wedding day in a few weeks time and in the meantime here is a selection of highlights from their pre-wedding photoshoot for you to enjoy.
