Southampton Engagement Photography :: Diana and Sam

couples Engagement photography portraits Travel

Pre wedding sessions. Awesome locations. Lovely couple. And funky architecture.

Sam and Di are good friends who’s wedding we celebrated the night before we left China to move here. A gorgeous Hong Kong wedding. But of course, we took some engagement photos a few months beforehand.

This was a little mini-sesh, we got together early one morning and explored the area around our city, Xiamen. Since being in Xiamen, whenever we would walk down to the park near the waterfront, we would go under the overpass with all the vines crawling up it, in a very ‘life after people’ kind of way. I’ve always wanted to put a couple in a frame there.

We've been talking about it since we were here last year. You can see it from anywhere in Cape Town it's so big (and everywhere else is so flat). It really is the icon of South Africa, and I can just imagine the first Dutch settlers seeing it on the horizon and deciding to come here.

When we woke up on Saturday morning we checked the mountain from our window and saw just a few clouds wisping around the base, not enough to keep u ...

Southampton Wedding Photography :: Emily and John
This wedding was so beautiful. I knew it would be. From the moment we got the news that Em and John had gotten engaged, I couldn't picture anything but a spectacular day for them. From what I knew and had heard about Emily, she doesn't do anything half fast. So when she wrote to me, asking if I might possibly photograph it for them, I was thrilled (almost like being asked to shoot the royal wedding thrilled). When these two came out for our wedding in January they spent the whole week up on the mountain with us. I was a bit worried that Emily might change her mind about wanting me to photograph their wedding, because well, I didn't exactly ha ...

Southampton Family Photography :: Beach Session
How many families do you know that want to have their water fight photographed after they take their "nice" photos? I had such a blast with this super photogenic and lovely family. Kelly and I have been meeting on Monday morning for the past few months, for what I like to call "punishing Ashley." She's a personal trainer and an amazing inspiration. I always leave our sessions feeling uplifted and with a new appreciation for my body. I just wish she could count better ;-) I loved getting to meet her fiance, Phil, and their combined families. Each of the 4 kids has something a little different to bring to the table in terms of personality and q ...
