Southampton Engagement Photographer – Mike and Sue

Engagement

So a while back I was taking a Portrait Photography class and was in desperate need for some models to pose for me. It was a very “traditional portrait” studio class (nothing like what I ever wanted to do or do now, but nevertheless a good learning experience). Mike and Sue graciously agreed to help me out and sit for me while I took awkward, overly posed photos of them (“yes, it’s very important you tilt your head exactly that way, otherwise I might fail” kind of stuff). As you can imagine, those photos never and will never surface on the web. It’s to protect all three of us, I promise.

But I was really happy when got engaged and asked me to take their engagement photos. It gave me the opportunity to show them what I was really capable of. All these photos were actually taken in my little neighborhood, so it’s a good look into Ozona as well.

Meet Mike and Sue:

Southampton Engagement Photographer :: Em and John
Something I never really considered all that much before I got married was, the family I'd be becoming a part of. But I have to say, as far as in laws go I couldn't have hand chosen better ones. Emily is Eliot's cousin and one of the sweetest people you'd ever meet. Her and John came to our wedding so many of my friends and family now know who she is. Whenever I would tell someone I was going to England to photograph her wedding, I would in some form or another get, "Oh sweet Emily?" So Em, just so you know, you were a hit.A few days before the wedding we decided to do a little mini session ::35mm B&WHolga cross proces ...

London 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 ...
