I promised myself that next time I post about a portrait session I wouldn’t mention the weather, but it’s really hard not to, as it has such an effect on what we can do with the session… I’d been trying to find a time to shoot Jo and Al’s engagement session for a couple of weeks – either the timing didn’t work or it was pouring with rain, or so it seemed.
Anyway we finally fixed a time for last Saturday – and it was literally a case of looking at the weather forecast on the day to find an hour when it wasn’t going to be raining! Anyway we managed to find a gap and met in the Phillips Memorial Park in Godalming, down by the river Wey…
Jo and Al’s dog Baloo (a Newfoundland puppy) is a big part of their lives, so of course he was included in the shoot as well!
Despite it being a cold and cloudy day we had fun with the session and (I think) got some nice photos. I’m looking forward to photographing their wedding at St Peter & St Paul Church in Godalming and the reception at Loseley Park – and hoping for some spring sunshine!
