Engagement photos of Sian and Rob were taken on a spring day at our favourite location, Elvaston Castle Park. The guys liked it too as it was quiet, picturesque and with only few people around. We had a stroll through the wood, then the Elvaston Hall court yard, visited the gardens and took few shots next to the lake.
Sian and Rob were very interested to get good shots and were ready to spend some time for it. After an hour or so we had a selection of very different engagement photos, while all of them showing connection between the bride and the groom to be.
Here are few pictures from the shoot. Looking forward to photographing Sian and Rob’s wedding soon!
We’ve recently got together to photograph Emma and Andrew at Elvaston Castle Park. This is one of our favourite places around Derby. The park has got a wood with old and very large trees where we hid from open sun to take few pictures. Then we walked towards the house and the garden for more shots. It was pretty hot so we decided to finish the session with ice cream.
Emma and Andrew will unusually have two weddings: one, with official ceremony, in Australia, and the other one back in England. Wishing them an excellent Australian wedding party and look forward to photographing their wedding day here in England!
For their pre-wedding shoot, Alyona and Dmitriy have chosen a vintage style. The whole photo shoot was done at Elvaston Castle Park, near Derby, which suited very well the vintage style with its Hall and surroundings.
Alyona’s dress, make-up and hair style (the hair style was beautifully done by Kate Thomson) and Dmitriy’s outfits were perfectly matching each other. Both the couple and Elen Studio Photography put their efforts together to choose the vintage accessories and create the shoot idea. Altogether there was a truly feeling of the 40ths atmosphere.
Having all these ingredients along with excellent warm and sunny weather, we all had a great time whilst shooting these engagement photos for Alyona and Dmitriy. Looking forward to shoot their wedding day!
It was a great pre-wedding photo shoot with a very pleasant couple, Louise and Neil who will get married in September. This time we’ve decided to go to beautiful Elvaston Castle Park near Derby, and were actually quite lucky to catch warm and sunny weather in the middle of a row of cold and rainy days.
Elvaston Castle Park always has some interesting places like the one we’ve found – a log and a bench made of a log were unusual props for some of the pictures.
Louse and Neil were in excellent mood and prepared for the shoot very well – they brought a nice cakes stand and had a little picnic during the shoot. They’ve even got special umbrellas but the weather this time was on our side.
Lucy and Alex were photographed in two different places, different outfits. At first location, Elvaston Castle Country Park nearby Derby, Lucy and Alex were dressed a bit more formally – the atmosphere at these pictures is more romantic. The second part of the session was done at another Derby park, this time guys were in casual.
As you can see, we had lots of fun during the shoot. Lucy, Alex, thanks for your lively mood – that was great to photograph you!
Although Sarah and Chris live at Australia, the technologies of 21st century helped us to find each other and discuss all the wedding day details. Because they only had limited time of being in England, we organised their pre-wedding shoot just a week before their wedding (the wedding pictures to come!). For the shoot, we’ve chosen Elvaston Castle Park – beautiful place with a lot in it. Although the weather gave us a little of bit of heavy rain just at the beginning, the skies cleared later making the pictures even more colourful and alive. Guys, thank you for not worrying about the rain – I think the weather finally rewarded you with beautiful sky.
