I was lucky enough to assist at a engagement shoot with Nick Ridley Photography last month. I had a great day & gained so much experience. It also made me appreciate a pre wed shoot even more. When I assist next month at the wedding, there will be no awkwardness & this lovely couple will feel at ease with 2 photographers pointing their cameras at them for the day. Instead of meeting your photographer for the first or maybe second time, every photo looking stiff & not really seeing your photographer as they have a camera stuck to their face!
I wish we had had one prior to our wedding now.
Here's one from the shoot, a lovely autumn walk along the Essex Salt Marshes. Of course I had to share a black & white image, I just love it! Love this pose too, not to posed, still natural & lifestyle.
