Hey there, I'm Kate
Life can get super busy Sometimes we forget to appreciate all the wonderful little things we have. I’m certainly guilty of this, being something of a workaholic! We alll need somewhere to relax, and this is where I choose to go. This is my happy place, up on the Malvern Hills and it’s also a fantastic spot for amazing engagement photos.
I have realised lately that I have been getting a little too wrapped up in the technicalities of my work. Striving to create “perfect images”. Kicking myself when I don’t get the lighting setup exactly right. Beating myself up when my composition isn’t spot on.
Back to Basics
And then I thought….let’s go back to the basics. I began my journey as a photographer with no technical knowledge whatsoever; just a love of taking photographs! So when I packed my bag to spend the day in the Malvern Hills with a few of my couples for their engagement photo shoots, I stripped my kit right back to the bare minimum. No flash, no reflectors, no filters.
The Malverns at Sunset
The Malvern Hills is such a gorgeous place to take photographs. I’ve done several engagement sessions up there now over the years and it’s always one of my favourites. Yes, it’s a bit of a walk to the top and it can be cold and windy. But when the weather is right and you manage to catch the sunset, it’s simply breathtaking.
Being up there really brings you back to nature and allows you to slow down, appreciate what’s around you and just enjoy the moments.
A Fantasic Day
So, just one camera, my trusty 50mm f/1.2 and my 24-35mm f/2 lenses. Minimal kit for maximum fun! Let’s face it, who wants to trek up to the top of the Malverns with a bag full of heavy camera equipment?
What a fantastic time we had! It’s easy to forget, with so much technical info running around my brain and so much heavy kit to lug around, to just have fun with my photography and with my couples. Remind myself why I fell in love with what I do.
