London engagement shoot at Trent park

Well before we talk about one of many photo sessions i.e. a Hertfordshire engagement shoot, just to say what a busy time it is for us at the moment! It’s hard to keep this blog up to date between photography editing and all our various assignments. Two to three engagement sessions a week and an average of two full weddings every seven days too. No complaints though, good job we love it! Joanna and I are happy to say we are busy all year round but it just gets a little more intense at this time of year.

We made a decision last year not to do any three weddings in a row i.e. Friday Saturday Sunday. This is because although two consecutive big days are fine, the fact we put everything into what we do means that by the third there is a chance one hundred percent becomes ninety five, and that is just not fair for a couples once only wedding day. Downside business wise it did mean saying a polite no to an extra six weddings this year.

Martina and Petrus featured here are getting married in South Africa, and hey we are already booked for their date, so we won’t be going, but we will be wishing them well in spirit! We chose Trent Park near Enfield and Barnet for its mix of woodland, open countryside and lake locations. We had plenty of fun with props which is what this lovely couple wanted, and as keen golfers we set up a tee with Martina’s engagement ring to sit on while they embraced in the background.

Fallen trees from recent storms made for interesting backdrops, and as usual we used a variety of lenses to get different looks and feels for value and variety. For an example of a more urban engagement shoot take a look at this recent post: London Engagement Shoot
