Southampton Engagement Photography :: Karl and Nicole

Engagement family photography portraits Travel wedding

I always try my best, no matter what, to get a couple in front of my camera before their wedding day. Not everyone is used to having a camera pointing at them, and it’s often really hard to not go into “cheese” mode when it is. Getting a couple in front of the camera before their wedding day, helps me to coach them a bit and get used to my style of photography. That way, on their big day, they can focus on each other, and that’s when the magic happens.

However, these two had no problem in front of my camera. It seemed like they had already done it all before. We got to sneak away from the party for a bit to catch that afternoon light that only the Pacific North West can produce in the summertime. Here is my beautiful cousin Nicole, and her love Karl :: A little Pre Wedding Mini-Sesh.

Really nice job Ash. I've often been thunder struck by the beauty the northwest twilight brings in the late summer, early autumn. It helped me understand the quality of light the National Geographic photographer portrayed in the book The Bridges of Madison County was looking for to shoot his bridge spread.

Tumbling in the waves
I've been meaning to do a bit of an update on this blog for a while, but every time I go to write one, I've felt like a bit of a fraud putting up beautiful photos of things I've been doing, and talking about how great everything is all the time, when recently, if I'm being honest, I've felt pretty out of sorts. I don't like to bring things down, and I have been doing a lot of fun stuff the past few months, but it's also been mixed with quite a bit of emotions and uncertainty. It's hard with social media, because connections are always surface level, and Facebook isn't a space I feel comfortable sharing really personal things, or the downside ...

A First Look
I couldn't resist.  I'm nowhere close to finishing editing these, but I feel like these images deserve a post all to themselves.  The first look.  It can be so special and so emotionally charged, that a lot of couples have now opted to have their "first look" before they are standing in front of all their families and friends.  And I get it.  It's such an intimate moment (people around or not), but I think for a lot of couples, it's that one moment when it hits you.  All the planning is done, the cake is on the table, the guests are arriving, the dress is ordered, paid for and altered, and all that planning was all for this moment; when you w ...
