New Forest Engagement Photography :: Meg+Matt

Engagement portraits wedding

You wouldn’t know it by looking at these photos, but this shoot nearly got rained out. The day before is when we’d originally scheduled it, and it poured rain from dawn to dusk. We quickly scheduled it for the following day and managed to capture that sweet autumnal glow.

I love setting up for engagement shoots. Scouting unique locations is my specialty, and in this area there is no shortage of magnificent backdrops. A broken wall, or a glimmering tree line can completely transform a photograph from your usual portrait into vibrant scene.

Meg and Matt were good sports about trekking through forest and fields as well as hopping over a fence to get some of these shots.

Sidenote: Doesn’t Meg have the most radiant smile?

Engagement photography is a speciality of mine. See more of my work here.

Southampton Wedding Photography :: Brian and Brittany
Funnest. Couple. Ever. Loved being a part of Brittany and Brian's day.  When I first met these two our conversation mainly consisted of all the great breweries up in the NorthWest. They spent a year living up in Portland after graduating from university.  Brittany is so laid back, when I arrived at her Maid of Honor's house to start capturing them getting ready, her bridesmaids were giving her a hard time for painting her own nails.  Her biggest worry throughout the whole day was that when we went outside to take some shots of just the two of them, she was going to miss the DJ playing The Twist. Brian is equally carefree and easily distrac ...
Little Darlings :: Ava and Ivy
I got to spend a morning chasing around two beautiful little girls.  Both talk a mile a minute, love playing on swings, fishing and each other.  They really are so sweet and are constantly looking out for one another.  This was the day after they had a joint birthday party, so there was lots to tell and share.  Ava is the older girl and loves little sister Ivy.  Meet these two little darlings. Gorgeous girl. The whole time I was taking photos, Ava was begging me to take one too.  This one is her doing, pretty good I think. "Ashley! Take a picture of my baby!" Yes, her baby's blanket is a....lid? ...
Southampton Boudoir Photography :: Miss V
Some of my best work is sealed under lock and key for only a select few eyes. Most of my clients don't want anything shared, and that's perfectly fine. Every photo I put up here has been individually ok'd to be posted. Boudoir is as much about a feeling as it is in the visuals. If she doesn't feel like one photo is showing her in the best light, then it doesn't go up. So when I am given the opportunity to share some boudoir, it's a treat. A couple weeks ago, I shared the film side of this shoot, if you haven't seen it yet, check it out here. Here is the rest of the gorgeousness.
