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.

So it's pretty difficult after you spend a few years traveling and making new friends in all different parts of the world, to be settled somewhere and have people you love scattered around the globe. For that reason I feel extremely lucky to live next door to two of our best friends and their little girl. It's crazy for me to think that I met this couple on board a boat in Thailand over 5 years ago, and they have come to be such a huge part of my life now. Chantale has become one of my closest girlfriends and of course will be a bridesmaid in our wedding (less than one month now!), and Boomer is ordained so that he can now marry us. As you ca ...

Here's a little peek of what I've been working on/getting lost in.  I love taking the photos, but I also really love the editing process.  The time alone with my work, polishing something and really making it shine before showing it to anyone.  Taking pride in it and not just throwing everything out there, but only the best.  It's a completely different part to the creative process.  It's not just grunt work that has to be done, but it's like reliving that moment that the shot was taken and making sure that moment lives up to its potential.  And that is just it, not changing a photo to make it into something it never was, but just a little tw ...
