Leigh & Stephen’s pre-wedding shoot last weekend was so much fun and full of lots of my favourite things – Dartington Hall (stunning in all the seasons), cherry blossom, Bantham beach (another favourite as I’m sure most of you know by now), red shoes, converse and fantastic company! Two beautiful locations and two awesome people to photograph – what more could I ask for? Leigh & Stephen were up for a real laugh and totally got into the spirit of the shoot.  I love that Leigh was nervous beforehand, but soon admitted that it was actually really fun and she needn’t have worried.  As with all of the pre-wedding shoots, we basically make it all up as we go along (and I say ‘we’ as it’s a two-way thing).  I check out the best light and backgrounds and see what seems to work depending on the personalities of my clients.   Well in Leigh & Stephen’s case, we also had to keep out of view of Stephen’s colleagues during the shoot as he works aas a chef at The White Hart at Dartington, and I’m guessing it wouldn’t be too cool to have your mates heckling you on the way round?   Thanks Leigh & Stephen for being so light-hearted and I seriously can’t wait for your big day in May which is going to be stunning x

It nearly got nasty for a minute there with Stephen getting a bit keen with the water!..

Oooh my two favourites, Converse and red shoes.. how did they guess?

Love this one of them both backlit by the sun on the steps

Loving all the cherry blossom, one of my favourite times of the year..

Quick change of location to Bantham beach, change of outfits and still Leigh & Stephen were smiling and ready to go! You guys are too good 😉

Thanks for looking x
