Christy & Brian

It was early fall when we met with Christy and Brian for their pre wedding photoshoot in the Cotswolds. We started their pre wedding experience at Burton on Water. The charming and cozy atmosphere of the town was just how Christy and Brian showed their love for each other. What really surprised us was how “at home” they looked in their photos. Comfortable and relaxed at all times. There was something so natural and homely in their emotions as if they lived here all of their lives.

Once we relocated to the forests of Westonbirt we captured amazing fall-hued photographs with the couple having a little bit of fun, throwing leaves in the air, and just enjoying the sunset.

We ended the day with a few more happy photos in one of the many picturesque, ‘old-feel’ towns that the Cotswolds has to offer. A special way to end a pre-wedding experience.

Creativity is not something you would necessarily expect from a wedding photographer however This Love Studio really delivered. Courtney & Mattie
