Today we managed to dodge the recent rain showers, to do the pre wedding photography shoot for Katie and John, who are getting married next month and will be having their wedding reception at Lazaat, just outside of Cottingham, near Hull. Lazaat were kind enough to allow us to do the shoot there and following the shoot we had a chat about the arrangements for the big day. Katie is having eight bridesmaids and three flower girls, so we are very much looking forward to what is sure to be a really beautiful occasion with lots of colour and glamour! Having your photograph taken can be a little daunting for most people, but Katie and John were very natural and relaxed in front of the camera and really easy to work with, making my job so easy. The main challenge when photographing a venue that you have worked at before, is finding a new angle and not falling into the trap of reproducing the same images that you have done before. Luckily for me, the inspiration comes along easily and the gardens at Lazaat change with the seasons, so there were some new places for us to try out for the photography.
