Snowdonia Wedding Photographer at Cwm Idwal

If like me, you’re a Snowdonia Wedding Photographer then there really aren’t many things higher on your picture bucket list than shooting at Cwm Idwal!

I met Sammy & Shane at the Ogwen Partnership Centre just before sunset one Friday evening. We then went on a leisurely stroll around Cwm Idwal and to the lake. Like most couples, Sammy & Shane pointed out that they are not comfortable in front of the camera. I wanted them to relax a little so we just walked, talked, stopped, looked at things and laughed. Easy peasy. Pre-wedding adventure shoots needn’t be scary or awkward (read my Pre-wedding Shoot Tips and Advice here) and it didn’t take long for them both to relax.

I don’t think Shane was too keen on the cows (but he agreed to hang out with them anyway, trooper!) and because we’ve had a super summer here in Wales we didn’t need to worry about the rain for once, bonus! We haven’t had much rain this year either so water levels were pretty low at the glacier lake. I asked them both to walk onto some small rocks and just to look around and admire the spectacular landscape. Considering they thought it was going to be so awkward I think they did pretty well! Shane even managed to get his posing face on towards the end ;) We finished the shoot with a gentle stroll along the pebbled *beach*. And just because we can we stayed on in the camper and spent the remainder of the weekend in Snowdonia, happy days!

Head on over to this post to see what I got up to as their North Wales Wedding Photographer at The Wild Pheasant Hotel & Spa in beautiful Llangollen in September xoxo

I’m a Cheshire, North Wales, Anglesey, Snowdonia & Shropshire Wedding Photographer based near Llangollen in North Wales. My style is natural, relaxed and emotive and most couples that book me are laid-back and want their wedding photographer to fit in with their exciting plans without being bossy. If you like my work and would like to discuss how I can help with your wedding photographer you can contact me here.
