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.

Love Shoot – The New Forest
"What on earth is a Love Shoot?" my husband asked me... Well it's when a couple want to have photos done of themselves, just the two of them, for no other reason other than they want to do it. Maybe they're married and they have kids who generally take centre stage in everything, including photos. Or maybe they're not married, but they're tired of the same old selfie pose they have of the two of them together (you know the one, sitting in the car with big cheesy smiles). A Love Shoot is basically an engagement shoot without the responsibility of having to be engaged. It's a day away from everything and spending time with just your love, and h ...

Ocho Rio Jamaica Wedding Photography – Mike & Sara
This wedding was a much welcomed event. After being in China for three months, not photographing any weddings, it was really nice to get back into, and remember why I love doing this. Although it made me miss it in a serious way.Let me just say, it is incredibly humbling when a couple wants me to photograph their wedding so much, that they bring me to the far away place that they're getting married. And yet, a ginormous compliment as well. Travel is in my bones, and if I get the opportunity to be in a new place while photographing what I love, I will always make that a priority, and do anything I can to get there.This lovely affair wa ...

Xiamen China Engagement Photography – Diana and Sam
Pre wedding sessions. Awesome locations. Lovely couple. And funky architecture.Sam and Di are good friends who's wedding we celebrated the night before we left China to move here. A gorgeous Hong Kong wedding. But of course, we took some engagement photos a few months beforehand.This was a little mini-sesh, we got together early one morning and explored the area around our city, Xiamen. Since being in Xiamen, whenever we would walk down to the park near the waterfront, we would go under the overpass with all the vines crawling up it, in a very 'life after people' kind of way. I've always wanted to put a couple in a frame there.
