Xiamen China Engagement Photography – Diana and Sam

destination Engagement Travel

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.

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 ...

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 ...
