Post Wedding Photography Shoot at Ashridge

June 22, 2017

I had a post wedding photo shoot with a fantastic couple(Anneka & Gavin). They had a beautiful wedding abroad and weren't 100% happy with how their wedding pics turned out, so contacted me for another wedding shoot to make sure they got the images they wanted.

Here's the story of how it all came together from the bride, Anneka;

We got married in Portugal and hired a photographer out there. We weren't overly impressed with some of the shots they took and we never had a mini shoot on our own on the actual day. I'm a romantic and really wanted some lovely pictures of just us together.

Once back home, we decided why not have a separate shoot for just the two of us. We decided to hire Carl after seeing some amazing work he did for a friend's wedding. I said at the time, if we were getting married in England then we would have Carl.

The shoot was very fun! Not something you do everyday! Carl recommended we went to Ashridge, as well as Ivinghoe beacon for some amazing views.

We were both dressed in our original wedding outfits, and for me this included a huge princess style dress, and a very long veil! I must admit I was pretty nervous, especially as I knew we were bound to bump into members of the public.

I'm a pretty nervous person and get embarrassed easily but Carl put us at ease, and was great at giving us directions on how to stand and position our bodies. This was something our original photographers did not do, and some shots ended up looking really awkward. We gave Carl permission to be honest with us about what looked good and what didn't but he was such a pro, he worked his feedback in so well in a really natural way.

We had a great time, and felt sure we would get some great shots from all the different locations we went to. Especially trekking right up to the top of the beacon in a huge dress!

When we first got a few sneak previews of the images... we were absolutely blown away! I literally couldn't stop grinning as I was so happy with them! Absolutely beautiful. And then of course when we saw the rest of them, we were even happier. They were honestly better than I could have ever imagined and I'm so so happy to have those images to last a lifetime.

We would 100% recommend Carl to anyone needing a photographer to deliver images with the wow factor. Photographs are very important to me, and it's the best decision we made to have this extra shoot. Carl was such a professional, friendly and relaxed at the same time. It was a pleasure to work with him.
