I first met Kate when we used to teach workshops at Aspire Photographic Training in the Lake District. We both have the same core values when it comes to photography and I have always been inspired by her work and attitude. Many times I have turned to her for advice with business and photography and so I was thrilled to have a session with her and her partner Brent for their new business Lumiere, and to return the favour for all her help and advice of the years.
It is always a bit nerve wracking photographing other photographers but I always approach every couple the same. I believe that wether you are older younger smaller or larger, with the right direction and the right light everyone can look amazing. I won’t lie that with these gorgeous peeps it was not very hard to produce a beautiful set of pictures. It also helped that the light was absolutely stunning. I always try whenever possible to schedule sessions for golden hour (another blog post on that coming soon) and it makes such a difference. Even more special was the fact that with the beautiful sunset the sky turned the colour of the Lumiere branding – this session couldn’t have been anymore perfect!
