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 Engagement Photography :: Karl and Nicole
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.

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 ...

Just a little peek at what I'm editing now.  I shot her wedding this weekend and I am so in love with this image.  I love going through the photos I've taken on a certain day and ooooing and ahhhing at what I see.  You just can never tell on that small screen while shooting if it's going to turn out right or not.  I mean, you kind of get an idea, but inevitably the one you think is the perfect shot turns out to be a little bit blurry and the one that turns out to be 'the shot' is sometimes unexpected.  It's not until the day is over and it's up on the big screen that I really get to see what was captured during the day.  With new, fresh eyes. ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Kerry & Jonas
I met Kerry the first night I arrived in China, after a long Chinese dinner and a ride on the back of a motorbike, through the busy streets of Fuyang, with a South African guy I had met just a few hours previously. (In case you think that's not the best decision I've ever made, I can promise you that it's not the worst.) She's been an easy person to keep up with, because every once in a while, we find ourselves in the same corner of the world again. This time, it was in London, and she had just gotten engaged to Jonas. She's American, he's German and they have such an amazing outlook on life, and this world. Eliot and I had an awesome day ...
