Lytham St Annes Wedding & Engagement Photography: so, what elevates a wedding or engagement shot to a great photo? For me three things: keep it simple; keep it natural; and hold back on that Photoshopping. Tom & Chloe’s shoot last week …… I feel fulfilled all the criteria; you were both so relaxed in front of the camera, resulting in a whole set of totally natural images. We kept it all nice and simple, leaving them to take the lead and chill whilst I snapped away; it was a cold – making that ‘chill’ all the easier – and breezy day which helped add a crispness to the pictures. Some photographers you see like their Photoshop filters and the like but I’ve always felt holding back on this stuff means you retain the honesty (& pixels!) of the photograph. Hey, I seem to have got quite deep today but that’s my philosophy in a nutshell! Tom & Chloe just love your engagement shots – you were just great to work with – and looking forward to your big day at one of my favourite venues, Storrs Hall, Windermere. See you then and hope you like my small selection here.
