As well as weddings, I’m also a family photographer. So I was delighted when Naheed and William booked me to photograph their wedding at Mayfair’s The Connaught and asked if they could have a combined engagement/family shoot beforehand.
I photograph my family portrait sessions outside in the ‘real’ world. This makes everyone feel so much more at ease compared with a studio session. Also with so many beautiful places all around us, it would be a shame not to use them! So for the session we’ll go for a walk together around a lovely location as I take a mix of candid images and relaxed natural portraits.
After a few discussions with Naheed and William we decided to have the session at Virginia Water. It’s part of Windsor Great Park and has a lovely mix of woodland, meadow and lakeside locations. This gives us a fabulous variety of backdrops for some really gorgeous portraits.
I love getting to know my wedding clients before the big day and this session gave me a chance to get to know the whole wedding party. Nadia was to be Naheed’s bridesmaid and Daniel would be William’s best man. I’ll be blogging their wedding in the coming weeks. It will definitely be worth checking back for that, The Connaught is an absolutely amazing venue!
If you would like some natural, relaxed portraits of your family then please do get in touch. I use only the finest suppliers for my frames and canvases, so can provide truly stunning products for you to display on your walls at home or as gifts for the grandparents.
