Engagement Photo Session at Shropshire Petals

I met Graham & Karen at the National Wedding Show at the NEC earlier this year and we had a fabulous chat about their Engagement and wedding plans!  Karen & Graham got engaged in December 2016 and knew they wanted to document this amazing milestone in their lives with professional photographs of them together.

Karen mentioned to me that she would love to have her engagement photos taken in a field full of flowers.  Of course, I immediately thought of the fabulous Ashley and her team at Shropshire Petals in Newport, Shropshire.

Shropshire Petals have the most amazing fields full of delphiniums and wildflowers... the colours are simply stunning!  I seriously could spend every day there (and still find more prettiness to photograph!!)

I met Karen & Graham at Shropshire Petals on a beautiful sunny day in July and we wandered across the fields to take some photographs to celebrate this exciting time in their lives.

Karen was dressed in a pretty pastel floral print dress which perfectly complemented the delicate flowers in the fields.  Graham looked rather stylish too in his pale pink shirt and smart navy jeans.

Having memories for years to come is a priceless investment.

We picked just a few beautiful spots in the fields to stop and take photographs, all the time laughing at the daft things I said and just ever so slightly melting in the heat of the day!

I love getting to know my wedding and engagement clients, so we chatted lots and I found out all about Karen’s love of cats and looking after their Japanese exchange students!

I asked Graham (aka G-dog, to Karen!) to name 5 things he loved about Karen…

  • Her awesome sense of humour
  • Cake baking skills!
  • Her love of animals (especially cats!!)
  • Her beautiful smile
  • …and the fact that she still loves being around me even when I’m annoying!

I normally hate having my photos taken but we were both at ease with Lesley straight away.
Lesley made the whole experience a special experience and we felt very comfortable with her guidance.

We would recommend her to anyone who wants an engagement photoshoot!
