British Cycling

Well that was one incredible day! Yesterday I had the honour of photographing Bikefest in Birmingham in association with British Cycling. The sun shone and the crowds gathered to join the city ride and to see who the new sponsor of British Cycling would be…I’ll let you find out from the images!!

It was also a complete honour to photograph Sir Chris Hoy who came across as a genuinely amazing guy!
The Golden couple were there too, Jason Kenny and Laura Trott, and they were all smiles in the sunshine.

A massive thanks to the British Cycling for hiring me, I loved it!

So without further ado, here are a few of my favourites!

Andrea and Mark’s engagment shoot

Engagement shoots are still thought as ‘an American’ thing…but I love them!!

They give my clients time to settle in front of the camera before their big day. I also get to spend time with them, seeing how they interact with each other and ensuring I capture their ‘best side’. So when Andrea and Mark booked one with me I was so pleased!!

Mark proposed to Andrea on the Clent Hills, so this was the beautiful location for our shoot. Andrea and Mark had watched my video on how to prepare for the shoot (click here to see it!) so they came fully prepared.

The weather was perfect, a slight lazy sun creating a beautiful haze! It did get a little chilly, so a lush blanket came in handy half way through!! It was a great day, I can’t wait for their wedding day in a few weeks time!!

These guys love for each other is so genuine that when I turned my back to take a pic, they were still embracing each other! So awesome!! So here is a grab shot I took, I love the ‘realness’ of it… surrounded by our prop bags, they’re having a moment!!… Don’t forget if you’d like a shoot get in touch: lucy@smithimaging.co.uk or visit www.smithimaging.co.uk for more images
