Leica Engagement Shoot – Kenilworth Castle, Warwickshire

Leica Engagement Shoot, a photo by MatthewOsbornePhotography – Leica Photographer on Flickr.
Here are some of the photos taken this morning with my Leica M9 camera. I wanted to showcase to couples who are looking to have an engagement shoot or book a wedding photographer what is possible for you. I aim to provide wedding couples with a mix of relaxed reportage style candid photos throughout the day plus some posed high fashion wedding portraits as seen here. This is my style of Leica wedding photography.
This morning Harriett and Ashley modelled for me and Donna kindly came along as my lighting assistant. I used the same lighting and equipment that I use on a wedding day and going forward I plan to take an assistant with me for every shoot (feel free to get in touch if you would like to get involved) to help hold my light so I can achieve the look I desire.
Photos were taken with the following lenses, roughly in order, Zeiss ZM Sonnar 50mm f1.5, Leica Summicron 90mm f2, Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.2 ASPH ii and Leica Summilux ASPH 50mm f1.4
Lighting was fully portable using speedlights.
Photos shot as Leica M9 black and white JPEGs in camera and finished in Lightroom 3.

Very nice mate. The last one is stunning !
Thanks Steve! Some Nikon D800 + Nikkor 200mm f2 AI-s shots to follow too. I wanted to compare the results from this combo vs. my Leica to see if it worth carrying the extra weight to shoots. I prefer the Leica M9 rendering (all Leica images vs. Nikon) but the 200f2 is still a special lens..to come 😉
Nice work, Matt, what a blessing this couple has to treasure for years to come from your beautiful photography.
Thanks Frank. It was actually just a mock up engagement shoot but they certainly made it appear realistic. 🙂
Good actors! You all mesh real well to pull that off …
