Kat & Alan's forest hike sunset engagement session

I really enjoyed this pre-engagement photo shoot at Chopwell Woods.

K&A already have a photographer for their wedding in 2015 but wanted some images to use for their invitations. I volunteered for the task, eager to practise my photographic skills at golden hour in an unfamiliar location. K&A had acquired some gold letters which we incorporated into some shots.

If I have ever been to Chopwell Woods before it was as a child and I had no memory of it. I loved the feel of it - densely wooded, with tall trees that gave the air a distinctive feel and the light a great quality.

I'd love to return there early on a winters morning as the sun is rising and burning off the mist...
