Location: Swinley Forest
Season: Autumn, October
We had an awesome time photographing Pete and Rose at Swinley Forest near Bracknell. If you have never been it is huge, literally goes on for miles and miles covered with trees, walkways and biking trails. We arrived early morning as the sun was peeking over the horizon so that when it was higher in the sky we would be deep in the forest. Shooting in Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year because the sun is low and golden and the leaves have a magic about them. The colours of the ground when the leaves have fallen and the sun hits is wonderful.
Pete and Rose were a delight to be with, they are hilarious – don’t take life too seriously and ended up taking the mick out of eachother most of the time, it made my job easier as they created the moments I needed to capture with ease. We started warming them up with some shots sitting down, before I was shooting on the floor while they were walking down this really cute lane surrounded by trees. Did I tell you they even had a leaf fight?!…… I think Rose won hands down (sorry Pete!).
I do love my job when I can capture fun moments between two people – I mean who wouldn’t?! – they are once in a lifetime moments in that moment of time that can never been repeated! After a couple of hours we walked back through the forest, the sun was high in the sky bursting through the trees. If it wasn’t for the fact that it was 10c you would have mistaken it for spring!
Looking forward to another leaf fight guys…..check out some of the images from our shoot below. Much love, L x
