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.

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 ...

Maybe one of my favorite parts about photographing weddings, is being able to see a couple at their absolute best. It's one of the happiest days of their lives, they've planned the entire day down to the last detail, and they both look absolutely gorgeous. They are surrounded by the people that they love most in the whole world, and those people are shining so much light onto them. You hear the stories of their lives, both as individuals and as a couple up to that point, and being there makes you feel like part of the story as well. You can see the goodness in both the bride and the groom reflected on the faces of their loved ones and you hea ...
