A couple of weeks ago I completed a pre wedding photo shoot at Stock Brook Manor located between Bilericay and Stock in Essex.
I have completed a number of pre wedding shoots over the years and all of them are special in their own way, but I have to say this one really was a little bit different than all of the rest – different that is in that only one of the ‘happy couple’ turned up.
Unfortunately and at short notice Ben was unable to make it and rather than cancel Jane came along on her own. Although it seemed a little strange at first, as I had prepared myself to be photographing a couple, we actually had a great shoot.
When I had met Jane previously she told me she didn’t like to be photographed and that she felt awkward in front of the camera. In fact that’s one of the reasons for planning this pre wedding photo shoot, to teach her how to pose and to feel relaxed in front of the camera.
The shoot was a great success, Jane did start off a little apprehensive and a little unsure of herself however she very quickly grew in confidence and towards the end was clearly enjoying it; and we produced some very beautiful very natural portrait shots.
