We had been waiting for the weather to improve for Marc and Lou's wedding pre-shoot but time was against us. Their wedding was only 2 weeks away and we needed to complete this shoot or it would soon be a post wedding shoot.
We had been teased by the forecast and expected a warm weekend; nature had a different idea and presented us with a cool and overcast day. We planned to get to our location, Felbrigg Hall, to get the sun low in the sky but the thick cloud cover stopped the sun from being a big feature in any of the images.
We worked across a series of locations scouted before the shoot. The daffodils contributed some much needed colour into the shots to make up for the bland sky.
Marc and Lou were great fun to work with and the pre-shoot gave us a chance to get to know each other before their wedding, try out some poses and talk through their big day. Wedding days are quite fast paced and there is limited time to get shots so it was really worth spending the time to talk through what they were after and also bring them up to speed on what to expect from me.
For this shoot I used my trusty 5D mark III and Canon 70-200mm f2.8 L USM lens along with my Godox 600BM strobe fitted with a Beauty Dish. For the wedding I'll also be bringing along 2 additional bodies, a Canon 24-70mm and a ultra wide Sigma 12-24mm for those large group shots. Along with my Godox strobe I'll have two yongnuo YN560 IV speedlights.
