Our E-shoot - Part 1!

We wanted to do a pre-wedding shoot to get to know Matt again and spend some time in front of the camera before W-day.  We arranged a weekend for Matt to come and stay with us on 1st April and planned a day up at Loch Lomond.  We chose that location as it's not only the place we initially met Matt on a photography weekend but it's a beautiful place we love to visit AND somewhere we could collect pebbles to use in our flower table arrangements!  It's also only an hour or so from here so handy for us!

Collecting pebbles in evening wear!
I had fun choosing outfits, accessories and props for the shoot and am really pleased with the results!  It took a few weeks for us to get the photos but they were worth the wait (I only hope the wedding photos are the same as I'm getting SO impatient now I can't wait to see them!!)

One of my favourites!

The twig heart was given to us as an engagement present by my bridesmaid Claire and I bought the heart chalkboards for writing messages (for this and the wedding day).  I also took along my new bright rainbow umbrella.

I decided to wear my classic beige mac but also took along a few other coats (I have rather a few too many!) I couldn't decide so asked Matt's advice and he said to take them all (um, eight!) and we could do a fun composite shot - still waiting for that one though.

My favourite coat - from Desigual (I love their coats!)

Matt had the idea for us to bring our scuba masks for some fun photos of us in the (freezing) loch!  We did it in the hope it would be worth it and here are the results...

I also took along some evening dresses and Nik took his grey suit for some random dressed up on the beach shots.  I love the ones Matt took of us with the forest behind us as well.

My handsome man :)

He also took some lovely detail shots of my ring...

The best of the rest by the loch....

Evening dress and zebra print wellies - a classic combination ;)
