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.

Being a Control Freak
I'm enjoying my morning coffee right now.  When it comes to my coffee I'm pretty ritualistic. I keep the metal pitcher in the fridge, so its cold and makes the steaming that much easier. I always use a thermometer to steam the milk to the exact temperature I want it (so it doesn't go cold too fast).  I have to have velvety smooth, frothy foam on top (keeps the coffee hotter, longer).  And my shots have to measured perfectly every time (so my coffee always tastes the same).

Southampton Lifestyle Photographer :: Summertime
I was absent here last week. All for good reasons though. I was getting ready to have a bachelorette weekend with three of my bridesmaids. Two of my best friends came from far away to celebrate (Texas and Utah). One of these girls, we figured out, I hadn't seen in over 4 years. Which makes sense, she'd never met Eliot and he and I are getting ready to celebrate 5 years together. It was an amazing weekend full of sangria, dancing, dress shopping, boating and swimming in the ocean. You understand why I was absent right? This is a shoot I did a few weeks ago. This girl is not new to this blog, I've photographed her before, and you can see tha ...
That Sweet Summer Light
Summer has set in down here on the Gulf Coast.  It's pretty steamy during the daytime and buggy in the evenings.  I'm looking forward to heading up to the Pacific Northwest next month to some cooler air.  But you really can't beat Florida's sweet summer light. Have a great weekend.  I get to go hang out with Stephen Marley tonight (at least listen to him play).
