Where to start with this exquisite engagement photo shoot session that was very much two very distinct shoots each with their own style and locations…
“The engagement shoot with Nikki was an absolute delight. It was great fun, fabulous direction and Nikki has excellent artistic vision. The photos are simply stunning and the memory of the morning, of taking some time out in the craziness of wedding prep to just have fun and look into each others eyes, is treasured. Nikki is an absolute pleasure to work with and the results are stunning. “
For the first half of their engagement photo shoot we went in a completely unique direction.
Early that Sunday morning we were in the heart of Montpellier in Cheltenham taking the first part of their engagement photo shoot.
Rachael and Neil are keen film and theatre buffs and also thoroughly enjoy re-enactments in their spare time. They had mentioned to me that one of their all time favourite films is Moulin Rouge, with a particular nod to the Children of the Revolution. And so a concept was born…
Rachael and Neil are getting married this autumn at Glenfall House in Charlton Kings and were keen to incorporate this gem of a venue into their engagement shoot. We scoped the grounds out for our favourite locations and talked about outfits that would be perfect for the season and to work with the Cotswold backdrop.
“We had our engagement shoot with Nikki on a sunny , early, Sunday morning and it was an absolute delight.”
“Nikki took the time beforehand to get to know us and find themes that we were excited about and she brought such enthusiasm to the planning that got us excited and comfortable for the shoot.”
“This was so much fun!”
“There was a great mix of playing around and going with it, and instruction from Nikki as she knows what works. Everything was relatively fast paced to set up and get the shot, no having to stand in one awkward position for 10 minutes with small adjustments!”
“Nikki was so enthusiastic throughout that it really built confidence and enjoyment. It was a very fun morning.”
“We were blown away by the results. As have been our friends and family.
Each shot is gorgeously framed and captures, well, us!
They are not stuff formal photos, they show emotions and joy, and that’s down to Nikki’s vision and direction.
We are so very happy with our engagement photographs and the memory of the fun morning.”
