A portrait shoot after the wedding day, in a forest of autumn colours – featuring tilt/shift shots, balloons and two lovely newly weds from North East London
Yeah I know, post wedding portrait sessions are traditionally known as Treasure the dress sessions (or “trash the dress”) – but really now, if no one is wearing a dress then? So I’ve just invented a new expression, “Treasure the tie session“. 😉 (Treasure the buttonhole session would probably also work, but it’s a bit long hey.)
I really, really love spring and autumn – those are the number ones on my season favorite list. Most people will probably say that summer is their favorite. But no, you won’t spot me stretching out on the beach (- I would just be too aware of how pale I am with only a slight chance to maybe go pink, or perhaps it’s because it’s the wedding season, and you will find me behind the camera or in front of the computer with my icecream!)
But I will be walking through the park displaying a big grin just as all the flowers come alive in all the rainbow’s colour, or when all the leaves are turning in to different shades of gold. I just love all the colours, the wild weather and the low, dramatic sky light of spring and autumn.
Therefore, I am so glad that the opportunity came about, for us to do this post wedding portrait session in the beautiful autumn paradise. 😉 I met with James and JC, looking exactly as they did on their wedding day – even bringing their wedding balloons (!) along. We met at their local church: St Peters in the forest, Walthamstow, and we took it all from there – with the backdrop of the stunning woods that is located behind the church….
