Life seems to be pointing me towards Tavistock at the moment, I have been to Tavistock three times in the last two weeks and am off again next weekend to photograph this couples wedding at the Bedford Hotel in Tavistock. Having photographed at Browns Hotel and the Guild Hall, it will make a nice change to photograph at another venue in Tavistock which I have not used before. But thats for another blog. Today I have to share a few frames from a rather wet engagement shoot in and around the park in the centre of Tavistock town. This was a stark contrast to 4 days previously when I was also in Devon but the sun was shining gloriously through on to Saunton Sands Beach. However I honestly do like a little rain, particularly on a Pre Shoot, its a challenge and when you get some heavier rain, which we certainly had, you can use it to your advantage in the pics, as you will see in a couple of the frames below.
Another slight change with this shoot was stepping away from beaches, I normally always suggest a beach for an engagement shoot, I just like being by the sea I guess, coupled with the space available, just normally makes for a nice environment for the event, but i’m always open to suggestions, and parks are also cool, especially like this with plenty of tall tress and leaves. Almost like an autumn feel as apposed to Spring/Summer. :) Looking forward to a pre shoot or two in central London towards the middle of the Summer, so that will be another challenge again, give me urban!
So here are a few frames from my Pre Shoot in Tavistock Park last week, hope you like.
