Southampton Engagement Photographer – Karl and Nicole

Engagement Travel

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. That way, on their big day, they can focus on each other, and that’s when the magic happens.

However, these two had no problem in front of my camera. 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 only the Pacific North West can produce in the summertime. Here is my beautiful cousin Nicole, and her love Karl :: A little Pre Wedding Mini-Sesh.

Really nice job Ash. I've often been thunder struck by the beauty the northwest twilight brings in the late summer, early autumn. It helped me understand the quality of light the National Geographic photographer portrayed in the book The Bridges of Madison County was looking for to shoot his bridge spread.

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 ...

Summer Wedding in Stockholm Being able to use my camera and photograph new places and spaces is one of the biggest joys in this profession. Every time I visit a new place, I find these subtle little beauties, and I wish I had my camera on hand. I normally settle for an iPhone shot and post it up on Instagram with a chic filter and call it good. But when I get to travel for a wedding, camera in hand, it’s one of the most rewarding times in my job. This Stockholm wedding is no different. The Wedding The day was filled with so many sweet little traditions and details. Alexis and Magnus clearly spent so much time refining it all and creating a ...

It's so easy to get caught up in the planning of the wedding and start to lose sight of the real importance and reason for it: Because you want to be together, for the rest of your lives. Everything else about the day should take a back seat to that number one reason. For these two, it took a way back seat. Actually, those things didn't even exist when they got married. It wasn't about the big celebration and gathering of family and friends, it was just about being together. Fast forward to now, and they've decided to have a little celebration in honor of the vows they took several years ago.We got together on an early morning to get to k ...
