The Leicester Botanical Gardens made a spectacular back drop for Christos and Anna’s session. Not only are these sessions fun and a great chance for the couple to relax prior to the busy wedding, they are also a fantastic practice of what shooting will be like when taken on the actual wedding day – as many clients that book with us have never been in front of the professional camera and lights before.
In their session Anna and Christos were so naturals! I loved capturing them in front of contrast colour settings. We made use of some of the structures in the gardens and had the couple play around with them, creating some unique and more ‘playful’ shots. Whilst I also loved capturing Anna simply against a back drop of either pure green, or a singular colour of pure flowers, appearing almost like a flower wall behind her.
I played around with the fuses and lighting to create a soft romantic tone to the images. As always black and white shots always look classic and romantic. You could certainly see the love and warmth between this couple who are about to wed. Anna and Christos were a pleasure to work with and we can just not wait to capture their big day in a few days!
