Linford Woods Engagement Session – Danielle and Josh
24th May 2016
Danielle and Josh decided to book an engagement session because they were looking to get some photographs to decorate their reception venue. Engagement pictures also work really well as save the dates, in signing books and it’s also a great opportunity to make you feel a bit more comfortable in front of the camera. The shoot took place on a warm August evening just before sunset. This is my favourite time of the day to work as the light is a lot softer and much lower in the sky.
We went to Linford Woods in Milton Keynes and Danielle brought her gorgeous little pug Lennie along…I love incorporating pets into engagement sessions! They also brought a picnic blanket along with a ‘Soon to be Mr and Mrs McAdoo’ banner (this would work really well for save the dates). We got a beautiful mix of funny and romantic images and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding at Flaxbourne Gardens in August!

Pre Wedding Shoot at Milton Keynes Park
Located just north of Central Milton Keynes, Linford Wood is part of the Great Linford Manor Estate and joins onto Stanton Wood. Both of these green spaces are part of The Parks Trust’s linear park system which connects all of the urban parks in Milton Keynes. Linford Wood is a great spot for photographing couples and families. Some forests can be quite dark but this park has areas where the woodland is more sparse, allowing lots of light in. Spring is one of the most popular times to visit the forest especially when the bluebells are in bloom and the forest floor is carpeted with flowers. If you’re getting married in Milton Keynes and are looking for a beautiful location for an engagement session, I’d recommend Linford Wood.
