Jemma & Andy – Engagement Session in the Cotswolds


While I was editing Jemma & Andy’s engagement session I started thinking about how important these shoots really are.

Imagine having a whole set of photos of your own parents taken just before they got married. Pretty priceless I’d say. Many couples have never had professional photographs taken of them before and these shoots are totally different to what we’ll capture at their wedding. It’s also a good time for us to get to know each other a little better and for the couple to see that it doesn’t have to be stressful at all having their photo taken. In fact, most couples agree that it’s actually good fun and that helps them relax on the wedding day, and that leads to better wedding photos. Everyone’s a winner!

For Jemma & Andy’s session we met in the Cotswolds and went for a pub lunch first. As it was Mother’s Day, I decided to make a day of it and brought the family along too.


We ended up back at Broadway Tower just as the sun decided to do some pretty amazing shows..


Oh look! It’s Evelyne, Elliott & Isaac. This photo is already on our wall 🙂



Elliott was determined to be in more photos!


There’s that cheeky little boy again!


The wedding is in 2 weeks. Photos here soon…
