A Pre-Wedding Shoot in York with a Special Mini-Guest: Laura, Martin and Nancy!

The countdown is on for Laura and Martin’s big day at the fabulous Barmbyfield Barns next month and I’m beyond excited to shoot their wedding there! Hope this good weather lasts.

Last Friday, they received their gallery from their pre-wedding shoot at Homestead Park in York. Pre-wedding shoots are a brilliant way for us to get to know each other better before your wedding day as well as for me to catch up on your plans and anything special you want from your photography. It’s a great chance for you to get used to having my camera pointing at you and to practise a few positions that we’ll probably use on your wedding day portraits.

It wasn’t all new for Laura and Martin when we met a couple of week’s ago for their shoot because I had photographed little Nancy at their home when she was a newborn. So it was extra special to have her along to take part in the shoot too and give Mummy and Daddy lots to smile about. Isn’t she a beauty?! If you want to see how much changes in a year, take a look at her newborn blog here!

3 weeks to go, gang! I can’t wait to see you there!

Here are some of their pre-wedding highlights:

An Engagement Shoot in York

Contrary to popular reports today, these two haven't secretly become engaged! They were helping me out with some couply posing practise because there are some Essens Photography weddings on the way in 2017- very exciting! As part of the package, I am offering a pre-wedding engagement shoot and these are the types of pictures you could expect. 

We had great fun on a stroll though the local allotments and onto The Stray. Luckily, this pair was up for anything: plodding through mud, negotiating logs, jumping, extreme close-ups, you name it! 

Here are some of their best bits. If you like what you see and know any love-birds who will be tying the knot, please spread the word. I'd love to hear from them!
