Love Shoot – The New Forest

Engagement Feature

“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 having beautiful shots of it all.

I hosted a Love Shoot giveaway on my Facebook page a couple months ago, to celebrate reaching 1000 likes (thank you all very much!). Vanessa was the winner. In addition to doing this shoot with me, her and Lee also dined at The Pig hotel courtesy of Ashley Hamilton Photography. So it was truly a day set up for just the two of them.

The Forest was in all it’s glory on this day. Starting at the beach we were greeted by donkeys and cows, basking in the early Autumn sunshine. We then headed into the one of my favourite parts of the Forest, near Brockenhurst. It was my pleasure meeting these two and sharing stories about our similarly aged boys. They are both so easy going, which makes my job as a photographer fun.

Autumn New Forest Engagement Photography
You wouldn't know it by looking at these photos, but this shoot nearly got rained out. The day before is when we'd originally scheduled it, and it poured rain from dawn to dusk. We quickly scheduled it for the following day and managed to capture that sweet autumnal glow.I love setting up for engagement shoots. Scouting unique locations is my specialty, and in this area there is no shortage of magnificent backdrops. A broken wall, or a glimmering tree line can completely transform a photograph from your usual portrait into vibrant scene.Meg and Matt were good sports about trekking through forest and fields as well as hopping over a fe ...

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 ...
