We love doing pre-wedding photo shoots to get to know a couple better, and learn how they feel about being photographed together. It always makes for better photos on the day itself. For the same reason we always visit the venue even if we know it well – after all, things can always change. So when Jessica and Mike suggested meeting at their wedding reception venue we knew it was a good idea. Rowton Hall was built in the 18th century, and its many original features make great photo opportunities which we’ll definitely be making the most of. On such a lovely evening in July, it made sense to go for a walk with them and explore the wonderful grounds too. Jessica and Mike look fantastic together, and our Leica lens helped to make the most of that gorgeous evening light. A lovely couple and a lovely venue – we are looking forward to shooting their wedding in August.
